Inspired by featherlou’s thread in the Pit about her wedding. People were giving a lot of constructive advice about economizing and simplifying. People were also sharing details of their own weddings, and how they kept them economical and simple.
It struck me as amusing that these posters almost seemed to be trying to one-down each other: who paid the least, or had the fewest accoutrements. Or who had the most debts to call in, or the most talented friends/relatives, so this or that service was free.
So who here has had a low-maintenance wedding, either in terms of money spent or energy expended?
I’ll start. Mr. Rilch and I were married at the courthouse, wearing clothes we already owned, (no tie for him), with no guests. We went to Black Angus afterwards, and they gave us a free dessert.
