My friend is stupid happy right now. I’m happy for him. He waited a long time to get married in Phoenix Arizona. I took a study break and went for nachos because it’s what single guys do. 🤣👍🙌
I don’t know what single women do if I did then I’d probably meet one.
All in all we saved maybe $15,000 or more doing much of the wedding ourselves. Similar quality to an event center here or those offered in the Scottsdale Arizona area. It was many sixteen hour days though a month before the wedding. Traditionally, the best man would do everything but his brother was busy running two companies. We used that as guilt to make him pay for all the drinks. 🤣🤣🤣😇
I think, as long as you concentrate on the reason you’re bringing your community together you let stuff go. Do you need a parade of horse carriages through Downtown Phoenix? A $30,900 fireworks display over a nearby mountain top? A staff of 100? Not one band but a concert lineup? Oh. Then, there’s limos. 🙄🙄
What a waste of money those are…
Concentrate on the expression of your love. Invite those that matter to your life. Everyone else still matters. You just—.
What if you’re not invited to the wedding?
That one, is a hard one right? You thought you were close. Close relationships, you know each other’s lives pretty well. That could be a reason you’re not invited. Why, make things hard for you? Why, make things hard for the couple?
We did have an issue at the wedding. Everyone’s favorite drunk uncle came by and he wasn’t invited because he was attempting sobriety. We wanted to support that and knew there was plenty of alcohol there so we “forgot” him. Not because, we don’t love him. He’s tried to get sober maybe five times previously. He showed up for five minutes and sat in the corner. I was so happy to see him but as the beers started whizzing by he took off. We get it.
You think about it on a larger scale. A huge event that gathers many there has to be that self policing. It doesn’t usually happen but, it would be great if it did.
