Sometimes I wonder why people bother to have weddings at all.
If you ask me, the entire ordeal is a bit unnecessary if you’re getting married for the right reasons. If you truly can’t wait to spend your entire life with somebody, why do you need a big party to celebrate your partnership? Isn’t it good enough that you have found each other and settled on a lifelong agreement together? It seems like you would be better off saving your money and investing in your future life, rather than blowing it on an open bar and catered food that everybody hates. That’s my opinion, anyways. To be fair, I also absolutely hate weddings… Including the one that I attended last week. I already thought it was a bad idea to have a wedding in general, but holding it in the dead of winter was an interesting choice. The air temperatures in this area are nothing short of frigid throughout the entire long, dark winter season. Choosing to have a big celebration with formal dresses when it’s 0 degrees outside did not make any sense to me. However, my cousin decided she was getting married no matter what the climate was going to be. I guess she had no idea that the indoor air temperature would quickly match the outdoor air temperature when the heating system broke down in her chosen venue. On the day of the ceremony the massive commercial furnace apparently took a turn for the worst. As the guests began filing into the banquet hall, the indoor air temperature plummeted. We wound up shivering in our seats, wearing our winter coats, and trying to shield ourselves from Ice Cold drafts for several hours. What an ice cold start to the marriage.
