    I'm probably the only guy who would appreciate a huge wedding. It's just fun. I'm not into the whole stressing about getting it exactly right thing, but I just think it could be fun. I won't have one, because neither I nor my family have that kind of dough, but it's nice to think about. How about having it at your local sports arena, hiring famous bands to play, and putting the thing on pay-per-view? Hah. It'll pay for the whole wedding!

    Even if I had a big wedding though, I'd want to elope a couple of days beforehand with just me and my fiance. As much as I'd enjoy the pomp of the wedding, I'd like having the real thing be an intimate secret...we would be the only ones who knew our real anniversary date. I'd just bump off the priest just so it never got out.
    Everybody have fun tonight. Everybody Wang Chung tonight.

    If a person is wealthy, hey knock yourself out, party down, it is good for the economy!...but the thing that gets me is people making 30 to 50k a year, financing a 10 to 20k wedding and then buying some huge rock on top of that. For what? It would be more fun to spend that money on new furniture or down payment on house or going on some fabulous vacation, or not spend it at all.

    I did my best to compromise with my folks. They are fairly traditional SJs, so it was important for them to share this occasion with my entire family, even though I don't feel connected to 99% of them.

    So, I got my way in just getting married at the courthouse. Plus, at the reception a couple months later, I made sure that there wasn't a cutting of the cake or throwing of the bouquet or head table or anything that really made us the center of attention (except the dance *shudder*).

    I could have put my foot down and said that I absolutely didn't want a reception, but I know that I would have heard about it for years to come. I think sucking it up for a couple of hours to please people who have supported you for years is sometimes the best decision, so long as you don't compromise too much of yourself.

    Whatever you do, at least make sure that there is an open bar.

    First wedding - Giant, overdone, extremely stressful nightmare I did not want.
    Second - Married on the front porch. Kids and wittinesses. Wonderful.
