Just a sobering thought!  from Julkiette Hughes

It ain't all about the wedding hoo-hah!

"She's going bridal - it's like going feral but more dangerous...
'For when we yearn for the trappings of stardom,
we forget the real purpose of the wedding,
which is the binding commitment made between
two people to live together,
which is better embarked upon
without massive consumer debt.

And when the unflattering gown is packed away,
the terracotta fake tan fading
and the interest on the maxed-out credit card
stopping us from putting a deposit
on a house, we may well wish we'd spent
a bit of that money on relationship counseling."
