Poll: Are wedding invites the bane of your life or the highlights of your year?

What are your thoughts?

MOST OF US can identify the moment our lives went from wedding-free to, well, wedding-full.

Many of us meandered through our early twenties without giving too much thought to weddings. Sure, we might have been invited to the afters of one or did a reading at a relative’s, but for the most part they didn’t feature on our radar.

And then proposal photos and engagement announcements started filling our social media feeds, and we instinctively knew that we had entered the next stage of our lives.



Is it a one-dayer or a two-dayer? Are they going church or humanist? Will it be a child-fee ceremony or what have the couple decided on that front?

Weekends are booked out months in advance. Potential ensembles are assessed and discarded. Hushed conversations pertaining to the contents of the wedding card take place among friend groups.

In other words; you’ve been thrust full-force into the world of weddings.

Some of us revel in this new world and some of us, well, don’t. Some of us adore the celebrations and jump in feet-first, and some of us worry over the cost, the travel and then feel extremely guilty over it.

Weddings – and all they encompass – can be a divisive issue, but where do you stand on them?

Poll Results:

In theory, I love them. In reality, I resent them. (1320)
I really do worry about expense, but I just try to ignore it. (885)
I adore them, and I don't give the cost a second thought. (342)
