How much should you have to spend on a wedding gift?
This is a little humbling, because I never thought I would be the type of person to write this: My most memorable purchase in 2012 was definitely my wedding.
This year was my attempt to work toward soothing the gut-clutching financial guilt.
Let me tell y’all about this wedding in Dallas.
Our pals at LearnVest have a great story about how a young woman learned to advance her career, save a bunch of money, kick cancer, and have the wedding she and her husband wanted. It’s inspiring.
Apparently, “250,000 weddings are called off every year,” which disrupts the Wedding Industrial Complex because it leaves a bunch of venue and vendors hanging. But this Bridal Brokerage firm will buy your cancelled wedding so you can recover some of your deposits back, and resells it to couples who are looking to have “beautiful, pre-planned weddings at a fraction of the price.”
I have one more wedding to attend this year. It’s going to be in Texas next week, and will be amazing.
