    I have been sending people the SomeECards for awhile now. I find them hilarious! (Of course you can’t send them to just anyone!!)

    I absolutely love Some E-Cards! Granted, they don’t qualify as a Mother’s Day gift like my husband apparently thinks they do, but I usually check at least once a week for all of the new ones they put up. And I’m going to check out the Lost set link right now…I can’t wait for the finale!

    $30000 for an average wedding?! I got married last summer and we did it for about $5000.. Made our own food, my dress was actually a prom dress.. We had an awesome day and were told by many guests that they had an awesome time and loved how we did it. If we had 30000 to spend, we would’ve spent it on a down payment for a house LOL.

    some people spend over 100,000 on a wedding???? I cannot even imagine that! We did ours for about $6,000 I think and that included the honeymoon! 😉

    I live close to Rockingham Castle, Shannon. I must find some photos for you! Let me know when you arrive in the UK one of these days, and I will take you there!

    Holy smokes….our wedding was under $1000!
    Hope my daughter decides to go with “family tradition!” (Of course she may be forced to! 😉 ) Love the linkage…

    Our wedding in 2006 was about $6,000 for everything. We had catered finger-food from a nice restaurant, two cakes from a professional baker, beautiful flowers… I don’t know why people spend so much on a day that’s a blur for most brides and grooms!

    You know a great place to visit in the states that makes me think of Rockingham Castle is the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC. I went there for my college graduation with my husband and it was amazing.

    I was a wedding consultant for 10 years in the 80’s and got to the point where nothing shocked me anymore – even the price. But my favorite story is of the Dairy Princess who had 15 Bridesmaids who each paid over $250.00 for a bell shaped,off-the-shoulder peach chiffon dress with hoop slips, matching shoes, gloves, donut hat, and parasol. Over a thousand people attended the wedding where mini stetson hats were given as favors. Seven months later she was back at the shop to buy another white wedding dress…
    It turns out she was having an affair with the grooms younger brother and decided to leave her husband and marry the younger brother. The divorce was not even final and she was already shopping for a new white dress.
    She could not understand why his family and all those bridesmaids were not supporting her in her “new” wedding, because THIS time she was really in love.
    It was the first time I understood the true meaning of “Bridezilla”…

    I have to tell you that the Compassion link really got to me. I’d been a little discouraged about finances lately and hadn’t heard from my Compassion child at all (had to get a new one because the child I had for so long, her church quit the program). Two days ago I got a letter. My girl, Mwende, is in Kenya and her older sister just died. My heart is broken for her 😦

    Regarding the “average” wedding cost – I wonder if celebrity weddings are included and that drives the average up?
    I guess I’m very frugal, I know how to save. It sickens me (literally) when brides overpay. I’ve done some minor party/wedding planning and I learned so very many ways to save. Research people, there are books, there are websites. 20 years from now – you will likely laugh about your dress, hair, etc. No one will care if it was a beautiful backyard barbeque or a castle gala – all that matters is that you and your huny get hitched and start spending forever as husband and wife.
    Too many people focus on the wedding, rather than the marriage.

    Because of the Compassion link you sent, I sat down to write our sponsored child a letter. Thanks for the reminder!!
    Also – I’d love a heads-up on R-rated links. I clicked through the ecards link with a “little reader” looking over my shoulder. The f-word was front and center. Yikes!!
