>I was watching something on TV and it said that the average American wedding costs $18,000. What the hell?!?
There is absolutely no way I would expect my parents to spend that much money on a one time event. If they had that much money to give me, I’d rather use it towards the down payment on a house or invest it in the stock market. It just seems so frivolous and wasteful to use that money on a freaking party.
