Old people were surveyed on the biggest advice they can give to the younger generation. Majority said that weddings are “the biggest waste of money”. It’s the one day women and some men felt like their life is a fairytale; but now they are told to stop the illusion for prudency’s sake.

Just start with the wedding dress. You spend a deal of your savings for the cloth. A guy speaking here, but it’s not like you could wear that again to party, unless it’s a Halloween party and you’re willing to torn it and blot it with blood. It’s once in a lifetime wear, then you put it in a box or hid it in the closet forever.

The preparations are not only a mentally and physically exhausting, but it hurts financially. I suppose wedding invitations are not yet sent through Facebook. It has to be pretty and appealing. Professional photographers took the images. And every print for every person is at topmost quality, to which the recipient will merely set aside. The more reasonable expenses were the food at reception, the reservations, the decorations (which has got to be a lot of floral) and of course, the after party.

The average cost of weddings in US is $27,021; and of all the states, it was mostly expensive to wed in New York where the average is $65,824.

IHateWeddings.com is a website for the sole purpose of hating weddings altogether. There are interesting comments like weddings are fake, it’s just a day of acting while one believed that the minutes of emotional bliss is worth it. A woman said that she and her boyfriend are at the peak of their relationship, why would a piece of paper change it all?

I think it’ll change everything. The wedding wouldn’t change their lives, but the marriage would. The knot was tied, the vow was said – the couple is ready for the rest of their lives together. It doesn’t matter how grandiose the wedding or how saved up it was. The symbolism of it is supposedly the most important aspect of it. Love is the reason of the celebration in the first place.

What do you think, are weddings waste of money?

You would think the night prior to a wedding day is exclusively nerve-wrecking for women; but that was wrong thinking.

Men are also susceptible to the feeling of wedding day anxiousness in unabridged immense kind. It can be a life-altering day, where change is even more keen for men given these three facets:

Physically

A man becomes a groom. He actually dressed up himself to look presentable. With the exception to the conceited ones, men rarely gives a damn to what he wears, more so to plan it. It is said that there are only two situations in which men dresses up – in funeral and in his wedding. So this is one of the two.

Mentally

A bachelor thinking is selfish thinking. He takes an activity with monetary gain and he only does whatever he wants in his free time, as the moment goes by. Sports, video games, and list of hot women are things you would see should you have a chance to know what is inside a man’s mind. But on his wedding day, he thought of a life decision. It is this day that he would swear in front of a minister to live with one woman, forever. Well, these thoughts visit a man’s mind only once in a while. And from that day on, his selfish thinking was bashed and changed into mutual thinking – he now thinks of the girl he marries and their future together.

Emotionally.

On wedding days, men admit having feelings – love. They profess to have loved a woman, some even cry on wedding days. On every normal day, men pretend to have their feelings nonexistent. It shows robust masculinity to be unperturbed by emotions.

Unspoken but true, a wedding day is a noble and novel experience for men. Grooms, do you agree?
