Weddings are expensive, not just to throw but also to attend.
There’s the gift. The outfit. The travel costs. The hen’s night or bucks’ party (or both). The kitchen tea. The engagement party. The cards (when did cards get so expensive?).
By the time you’ve added up basic costs, you can expect to be spending anywhere between $100 (if you’re a very thrifty individual) to $1000, or even more (if you go all out in an effort to “support” the happy couple).
“How many of you have paid for your meal at a wedding?” Nick asked.
He also went on to say that the bride had told him it was an “unspoken tradition” but that he’d never heard of such nonsense.
And neither had I, until recently.
“Sounds like they’re planning to recoup the costs of the rest of the wedding through dinner,” one user pointed out. Too right Nick. Too right.
