Wedding Observation

If men were in charge of planning weddings, they planning would take 1/10th the time, and be 1/10th the cost.

Thanks to clever word-of-mouth advertising by the wedding industry, men do not plan weddings.

It's true. The more you pay attention, the more you find that anything with the label "Wedding" on it costs 10x more than pretty much the same thing for normal purposes. Unity candle? Take one normal white candle, add some ugly frills and lace, mark it up $15 -$25+ because someone will pay for it.

I should figure out how to make something absolutely "indispensable" for a bride-to-be just so I can mark it up 250% and make a fortune because no one usually questions the price or the need for most things wedding related.

My favorite was when I called Big Bowl (a generic fast-food Chinese restaurant) about hosting the rehearsal dinner.

They wanted $6,000 for 40 people. That's $150 a piece.... For noodles and oil... I paid $9 for lunch there one day and felt like I got ripped off.

If you felt like you got ripped off for lunch then why did you think it would be different for a party?
