face value at the expense of overlimit bank loans?
wedding over still sh!t load of loans to pay off?
relatives coming to your wedding without you knowing WHO they are?or it's your first time seeing them?
60-70 tables and yet only 5 tables are your 'true' friends?
i dunno seriously.it really depends on what one wants i guess....
if you have alot of guests then downgrade the menu
but most importantly make it a happy event for all to remember
money can earn back (but don't overspend)
friends and relatives lost is gone forever
when you are older and wiser, you will know the trur valur of your friends and relatives
But still, some speak from experience. That strained relationships comes from the actual wedding itself. No doubt about it.
The thing goes down two ways: A couple decides something, The Parents feel another. Ultimately, its next to impossible to find a middle ground unless all can see eye-to-eye on a rational point of view (that a wedding's personal and 'face' amongst relatives, even to those who are like enemies to each other's parents, or what has got nothing to do with it).

i want to boast again.
the weddins which i'd planned, didnt go along with the parents wishes.
i was just told to plan in accordance to what my best friends wanted.
yes.they are rich, and they can spare the cash.i would say, their weddings are spectacular and definitely not the traditional kind of wedding dinners most of you guys attended.
if you're lookg at your parents faces for $ for your wedding, then i'm sorry.$ talks.you no $, LPPL have to 'sort of' give in to what your parents wants.
the 4 weddings i've planned, all the couples did not get a single cent from their parents.hence, they really did what they like, and not in accordance with what their parents wished.
if i can disclose, i was there for one of the discussions with their parents.in the end, no conclusion.bang table.
however, when the wedding came, there(parents especially) were all smiles.fake or not, i dunno.and i dont care.
all i know is i did my job, and i've helped my best friends.
no doubt.wedding nowadays are no longer the couple's event.especially the elderlys who want to 'zap zhi kar'(if u wan to put it that way ).but eventually, YOU are the one getting married.not them.and of course, save up enough before you even THINK about holding the dinner.try not to ask for $ or loan from your parents or bank.
then, you can do A N Y T H I N G.
then have 2 dinners lor
always the Light, .... always.
