It wasn't a complete waste. You stimulated the economy. You sacrificed your credit rating so that dozens of other service providers could make money. You're a hero! Here's a cookie!

I feel sorry for the husband, poor bastard.

I'll need $5 for that cookie.

Hell, my entire 18 year marriage didn't cost that much

/and the divorce was worth much, much more

Madam Ong, a sales executive, recounts how she ended up borrowing from credit facilities, her parents and her brother.

Her husband, who declined to be interviewed, had also borrowed from a loanshark with her knowledge.


Idiots. The lot of you.

And this is another reason gay marriage should be legal (besides the obvious one).

At least it didn't rain.
That would have been expensive and ironic.

If only people would put the effort into their marriages that they put into their weddings.

Sorry for him? If a guy can't see what kind of future is in store for him with bridezilla, he is a complete dumbass who deserves everything heading his way.
Dumbass.

I have never understood the need to throw crazy expensive weddings. You are better off using it for a down payment on a house or whatever.

The type of people who will bash you for the type of party you throw aren't worth your time or effort anyway. The people who will be truly happy for you will be regardless

We had a picnic for our reception, and the ceremony was in a park in front of a stone table as an 'altar'. What are you trying to say here? :P

When Madam Melissa Ong, 30, was preparing for her wedding

She wasn't even a mademoiselle anymore; why did she get married?

When Madam Melissa Ong, 30, was preparing for her wedding in June 2011, she wanted to "remember it for a lifetime".

Mission accomplished.
 
2014-01-08 06:58:24 PM  
Pictures costing $15K, taken in Paris, for a wedding held in Singapore?  Yeah, she may have gone a bit over the top on that one.  I hope the sex with the hubby is gonna be outstanding because the both of them are going to get hosed royally for the rest of their married life.
 
2014-01-08 06:58:32 PM  
She was making $3K per month, and spent $100K on a wedding?  I guess that's one way to insure that you'll remember it for a lifetime.

I had 2 coworkers who got married. She insisted on a big wedding. After the wedding, they had to move into her parents' basement and were about $32,000 in debt. Nice way to kick off a marriage!

I will never understand this lavish wedding shiat. It's like that song Royals except instead of teenagers it's adults who are going full retard extravagant.

What were they thinking, it's Singapore! They could have purchased permission to buy a car (not a car) instead!

COE for 2013 was $92,000 to $97,000 depending on engine size

I've been saying this for years. I got married by a Justice of the Peace almost 25 years ago. All my sisters who HAD to have big white weddings? Well, lets just say one of them is on her 5th...
 
2014-01-08 07:03:02 PM  
The guests didn't remember what was even served at the reception 2 weeks later, guaranteed.

Dumbasses, both of them.

The loanshark will start by breaking a leg and then work his way up.
 
2014-01-08 07:05:22 PM  
We spent around $18K for ours.  Luckily we saved up for the entire thing but I would've preferred to have used it on something else.

And a honeymoon in Japan.

"She went the distance with wedding photos too, and had them taken in Paris, a package that cost her $15,000 - including air fare and accommodation.
...
She went to Japan for her honeymoon and that was another $10,000."



Is this fake? How can someone be this stupid?

My wife and I are IT folk, we got hitched at the courthouse for $90.

She's a keeper.
 
2014-01-08 07:08:11 PM  
We spent maybe $2K total, including the ring. Simple church service. Lots of sandwiches back at the house and a big keg on the patio. Lots of good memories. Still married 30 plus years later.

/so there.

That is what you get for marrying a chick who runs a whorehouse....

Meh, thinking with the wrong head. Happens to most of us men from time to time. I'll cut him SOME slack. Borrowing from loansharks? NOW you deserve what you get. Dumbass.

CSB

Growing up, my dad would occasionally mention that if I eloped when it was time for me to get married, he would give me $5000. Alas, that will not happen as I lost him in 2001.

//been dating my bf now on & off for many years, neither of us are in any hurry to get married. When we do, we are going to just elope. I don't like being the centre of attention and a whole day of that would just be misery for me
//wouldn't want a "real" wedding without my parents anyways
 
2014-01-08 07:10:05 PM  
Could have gotten 5000 bj's at 2o bucks a pop and been much happier.


/just sayin

Likewise, never trust anything that can bleed for a week and still not die.

Funny, that is part of my standard wedding advice. "I can't remember waht i ate at any wedding I've ever been to, including my own"
 
2014-01-08 07:12:08 PM  
It's not that difficult to have a fairly nice wedding and actually make money if you shop around / haggle with vendors and make some sacrifices.

The only thing worse than people who throw extravagant weddings are the people who constantly let you know how cheap and down to earth their weddings were.

whining about the farking she wanted, too funny.

I had a really big church wedding, 150 people, catered reception at the audobon clubhouse in NOLA, professional photographer, lillies all over the place (my favorite), DJ, and the whole thing was 10000, luckily my dad paid for all of it.

My husband and I paid for the rehearsal dinner and honeymoon (3000).

I don't even understand how someone could spend that much on a wedding.

We didn't go a penny into debt. And had the time of my life, with memories that will last forever.
 
2014-01-08 07:14:40 PM  
We had a 13 person destination wedding in Munich. I think we spent under €2,000 for everything except the outfits and rings. We spent another $3500 by offering immediate family some travel money (basically covering their hotel for a few nights).

My brother had the typical "I'm showing off" party paid for by his father-in-law. FIL is a dentist who invited two tables of colleagues to the wedding. You do what you want when you're paying, but these people barely even knew the bride. Nice wedding, but was a carbon copy of several others I've been to.

I think we spent $1000 or less for ours, and most of that was spent on the reception at a local restaurant for 20 or so guests. We could have done it cheaper I'm sure, but all in all it was a very memorable day nearly 11 years ago and we're still going strong, having put the effort of the marriage where it belongs,  in the marriage, and not in the ceremony. I wasn't out to impress people, I wanted a nice, simple thing that people would be comfortable with and everyone have a good dinner afterwards.

Ceremony: Locally picked flowers for bouquet, rented folding chairs, local judge did the ceremony for a bottle of his favorite Scotch

Location: Wildflower meadow at the family cabin in the Crazy Mountains, MT. Said cabin was also our honeymoon spot for a week, it was amazing. Being on 640 acres all by yourself in the middle of nowhere, and nothing but the local cattle ranch nearby that ran cattle on your land to keep you company. We also took our dog with us.

Reception: Newly opened restaurant with open bar. Dinner was a choice of filet mignon, roasted chicken, or locally caught rainbow trout (I had the trout, it was delicious). Family friend made an amazing 3 layer vanilla cake with butter-cream frosting and it was decorated with sweet-pea flowers from her own garden.
