I have a friend who is planning a wedding right now, and although she's looking forward to the big day, she has expressed doubts about why in the heck she's spending so much money on one event. She said, "All this money is going out the door and for what? A big party?" Look at it this way, sister. You're spending a boat load of money on a party, but you'll get back a Titanic load of gifts. It's not all bad!
A wedding is one of the top ten things we spend too much money on, according to an MSN Money article. Can you guess the rest? Yes, a funeral is on the list. Another big life (or in this case death) event that can get out of control in a hurry.
