This story was relayed to me by an older couple that I am acquainted with.

The husband of the couple I know has a large family consisting of a several siblings. One of this man's older siblings, who is over 60 years old, has recently started to plan his second wedding. Realizing that he could not afford a huge white wedding with all the trimmings, his bride-to-be suggested he ask each of his siblings to pay for a portion of the wedding (food, alcohol, band, etc.)

Family members. Being asked to pay for a huge, fancy all-out wedding bash for their sibling, who is 60 years old and has already been married in the past.

The betrothed couple approached the couple that I know, asking them if they would pay for the band for their extravaganza.

And the kicker ?

The happy couple were married at the courthouse earlier last year. That's right, the siblings of the groom are being asked to pay for a big church and reception soiree, for a couple that is in their 60s, and who are already legally married to each other.

Guess who is not attending the wedding ? ;)

Danny and I are paying for our wedding by ourselves, and are having the scale of event that we can well afford -- classy and beautiful but not over-the-top. That's the way it should be, IMO.
