Is it just me or is it just crazy for people to spend upwards of 50,000 on a wedding that is only one day? I am new to the site and I am getting very addicted but I am getting so frustrated hearing people spend so much money! Whatever happened to the day when the mothers made the food, it was held at a local hall, and the dress was a hand me down from grandma! I am from Napa, CA and live on a 26 acre "farm" not really any animals just vineyards. So I have always imagined getting married at home (since it just gorgeous with water and vineyards in the background) and it would help save a little money. I want a small (100 people) wedding and it still going to cost an arm and a leg. My parents are paying for the wedding so its not that funds are short but it is just so frustrating when something that would cost 50 dollars on a normal day is now 500 because its for a wedding! I wanted to rent a tent for the food, cake, and dance floor that was 1000 dollars! I dont want to buy the tent just rent it! Why would a tent cost that much money! I just cant imagine letting my parents pay over 50,000 for my wedding. That is like a good down payment for a house, which to me is way more logical. Dont get me wrong I do want the "Cinderella" wedding but yikes does it cost a lot. WOW anyways thanks for letting me vent ladies I feel a little better.
