Why do people spend 5, 10K on a wedding when it probably wont last longer than 10 years? Would you spend this much on a wedding?

My wedding cost about $12K. It was a really nice wedding. Better than i even expected it to be. I know that's a big chunk of change, but i'm lucky enough that we could afford it. If you all have the means, then have the best wedding that you can afford. It's great for you and your bride and both your families to celebrate something that means alot to you. If it's not really that important to you to have a big wedding, it's a personal choice.

If you have a Stag and Doe party first, and then include all of your weddings gifts, a wedding can actually MAKE you money.
We spent $8k on our wedding (my wife and I paid for it ourselves, no parental control of anything), and got $4000 in cash gifts and about $1500 in non-cash gifts (from our gift registry - all items that we wanted). So $2500 total real cost - if we threw a stag and doe first, we would have easily broken even, but we didn't have time for one because of our work schedules.
It really helps to control costs if the MAN takes part in planning the wedding (if you are paying for it yourselves). Invest some time in researching costs and stuff, don't be a chump and put your (future) wife in charge of spending $8k, because it will be $12k if you do.

B/c a wedding to chicks is like a Ferrari to guys. This is what they have dreamed about since they were little girls. It makes them princess for a day. The groom is just about as important to a bride as the centerpieces, table settings, etc. And most importantly, women are attention whores and a wedding focuses ALL attention on them. In the mind of a woman, it just doesn't get any better than that."In The Dark Knight, Batman raises the stakes in his war on crime. With the help of Lieutenant Jim Gordon and District Attorney Harvey Dent, Batman sets out to dismantle the remaining criminal organizations that plague the city streets. The partnership proves to be effective, but they soon find themselves prey to a reign of chaos unleashed by a rising criminal mastermind known to the terrified citizens of Gotham as The Joker." - July 18, 2008

All I know from talking to my friends and talking to girls is that you need to hide all your $$$ then let the girl do whatever she wants.
You cannot ever explain why the $20k you been saving up will be better off going to a downpayment on a house than spent on the wedding. Just tell her you spent all your savings on the engagement ring, then months after the wedding suddenly remember about your account....

It almost doesn't really matter how much you spend on a wedding, because your going to get it back at the hall. All the people you invite are going to give you money as a wedding gift, and its going to be atleast a couple hundred. With that money, they pay of the debts for the things like the hall, picture/movie guy, ect.

if you go too expensive you won't break even. In canada most weddings are 30-50k and they won't break even because no ones going to give a huge gift.I drive really slow
In the ultra-fast lane
While people behind me are going insane
Marriage is a great institution, but I'm not ready for an institution yet.
