I just did a little calculation and realize that you will probably need all your life savings and even more if you throw a lavish wedding. So, unless you have really rich parents, I suppose you wouldn’t want to splurge on giving wedding banquet that costs around $3,000 for a table of 10 persons.
I think even if I have the money, I won’t give it to my sons to throw lavish wedding banquets because they are better spent elsewhere. How about down payment for an apartment? Or an unforgettable honeymoon? How about stag weekends for them to have a final fling? And if I have daughters, I will probably ask if I can join them in their Hen Weekends.
And in case you have not heard of hen weekends, it is one smashing idea of a girls’ night out. They can make plans for you to do things you probably never have a chance if you have your spouse or boyfriend with you. Do take a look at the kind of entertainment programs and also the exotic destinations available for you.
Maybe I should ask my old girlfriends if we can go on a hen weekends, alone, minus our spouses. I didn’t spend much on my wedding and couldn’t afford to go on a honeymoon. Since my 20th wedding anniversary is coming this November, maybe I can catch up on old times?
