The Wedding Expenses....

May 25, 2010

Summer is setting in, and it’s time for weddings, and of course, a lot of young couples choose to get married in the open air, in the beautiful environs of Forest Park. A wedding is an expensive affair, because one has (or two have, or the families have, or the bride’s parents have) to pay for …..

The bride’s making sure that the rainy, muddy path doesn’t spoil her lovely dress, or her special shoes, though apparently she could exchange them with any of her bridesmaids!

Obviously, I couldn’t photograph the other major expense, which would be the food and drink, as I wasn’t invited to this wedding….I was only a brief bystander, but after they went to all this expense…the result was such a delightful scene, with beautiful young women, handsome young men, happiness glowing on everyone’s faces, and the wonderful warm feeling on seeing a new life-for-two starting from a point where two separate lives joined together!

I am a hopeless romantic, and I think money that’s spent to create such a beautiful, memorable event is well spent….
