So my buddy is getting married to a girl he has been with for 4 years. He's not a wealthy guy but does pretty well, he's pretty much letting her plan the whole thing at his expense since her parents are dead. The cost of the wedding is already up to 7 grand, she just started planning 4 days ago. I can tell the cost is really stressing him out but he's trying to be cool about it since he really cares about her. Does anyone else think it's kind of a sham to spend that much on one day? A day which is pretty much just a "look at me day" for the woman.
