My Wedding Cynicism

Most people who know me will tell you that I love all things wedding. However planning a wedding and writing this blog has made me start to question some regular practices of weddings. In this I have found a bit of my cynical side towards all things useless after the wedding, which you can read again here, here and here. Now I realize there are some things that after the wedding will hold sentimental value and you will want to hold onto them even though they no longer have a use, which is ok. But there are some things that will be absolutely and completely useless with no value. What do you do with these things afterwards and if you are just going to get rid of them is it worth spending the money on them in the first place? The new motto when deciding if we really need something for the wedding is when everything is over will it have a purpose or sentimental value, if not well then it’s just not necessary.
