My Secret Indulgence....

I have a secret! Shhhh... You can't tell anyone!
I am addicted to wedding shows!!!!
Slightly horrible yes I know.

My favorite one is Say Yes To The Dress.
I love watching brides come in and  try on dresses. It does make me very envious of them...but it's still fun to watch!
I really believe in spending less on the wedding, so that you have that money for your life together. However... a wedding is very very important. I think it's one of the best ways that the two families can get closer together.
It cracks me up how people can spend so much money on little tiny things that don't really matter.
If I was going to go back to school for something I would seriously consider becoming a Wedding planner. Those who don't have weddings plan, yes? lol

So I want to hear about your wedding! What did you like, or not like? What was something you spent money on that was worth it or not?
Or if you have never had a wedding what would be a very important thing to you to have?

I love that show!!

Here's my story, although you know it already. We spent the bare minimum, I don't think we even broke $1000 with everything combined. My dress, vail, and shoes cost about $300 together. We rented his tux. We got married and stayed at a bed and breakfast. And we only had 3 guest, a friend of mine who lived in that town, the owner of the B&B, and the preacher.

I am not big on huge groups watching me so this was perfect for me. Although I do regret our parents not being there, I don't regret not wasting money. I'm not into spending lots of money for something I won't get much use out of.

Watching the show, I LOVE the dresses and wish I could have had something as elegant as some shown. But I wouldn't spend the money on it. I'd rather invest or splurge on a honeymoon trip instead.
