The Wedding Word Adds A Premium Every Time

The joy of another wedding will be ocming my way before too long.  a young couple in my extended family have got engaged and are in the midst of the planning and rejecting stage of the wedding plans. She of course wants him to take as much interest as her.  He on the other hand is thinking, rather too loudly sometimes, that She should perhaps concentrte on her day job and less on the fripperies of their wedding.   The sheer cost of everything connected with weddings seems seriously expensive, in fact another young relative has got wise to this fact and rang around 6 venues for quotes for different kinds of gatherings, all needing similar amount of catering etc.  She was amazed at the difference.  A soon as you mention the wedding word, another several thousand gets put on the quote, even if she was not wanting anything special in place.
