All that glitters is NOT gold.
It is a matter of personal choices, as it should be. If you have money then you can flaunt it. The problems creep in when you take a LOAN for making your wedding a grand one. I would like to call these people 'The educated fools'. They dive deep into debt in order to have the wedding of their dreams and wind up paying even more in interest. A massive debt for one day of fun? All this money for the few hours of fun within the four corners of a banquet hall?
Why do we have to show off so much?? Are we trying to prove our status to everyone? Are we spending money so that the whole world remembers? Is this a competition between both sides?
All that glitters is not gold. The glamour is really shallow. Get closer . Zoom into their personal lives. You won't see the smiles you saw on their extravagant wedding photoshoots. It's just the outer beauty which fades with time. Your wedding might appear grand but if you are not happy after you are married then what's the point of it all? You are fooling yourself.
In your desperate attempt to seek attention don't forget that marriage is a holy ceremony. With all the pretentious displays of money the union of two human beings have turned into a minor detail. Isn't there a deeper concept to your wedding ? Marriage is the unity of two souls being one. It is about love. It is about loving your partner with all the flaws. In marriage you should never belittle or compare. You should be kind and humble. It is learning to grow together. It is putting your partner first. It is selfless love .
