Would you have formal wedding?
If you were getting married would you have a formal wedding? For me, I'd rather just elope somewhere or get married at a courthouse! Weddings to me are just stressful, and a waste of money. It's amazing to me how much money a wedding costs for the short amount of time it lasts. The money could be spent on a vacation, buying or renovating a home to live in together or even on future children (if you decided to have children or adopt)!
I've only been to about 6 weddings, surprisingly.
To me a lot of weddings these days are just done to show off how many friends or how affluent or well connected somebody is by who they invite or how many bridesmaids or guests they have. There would be no point to me to have a wedding, I don't have that many friends or people to invite, unlike these big weddings you see pictures of on Facebook.
Also I had two friends that got married. There was a very long wedding ceremony (probably an hour!) and then it was almost another hour to the reception, and they had it catered and had a limo, a honeymoon and a brand new house to come home to. But the wedding ended up with a divorce about 2 years later.
Underneath the cold November sky, I wait for you... As the pages of my life roll by, I wait for you... I'm so desperate just to see your face, meet me in this broken place...
Be a little brave for a little bit of time.
