I did have a beautiful wedding got married in a cathedral...really lovely reception which was 21 years ago but around 10k I would guess...my divorce was less but still a huge price to bear.
Makes you think twice to ever doing it again.
Not divorced yet, but wedding was very cheap - register office fee (£25?); dress £40; Mum paid for the restaurant lunch afterwards and in-laws paid for the champagne. We''d booked our holiday before the wedding, so that was our honeymoon.
I had this same thought about a year ago and wrote a blog post here titled ''cost benefit analysis''. At that time I worked out that the divorce cost (layer''s bills) had already amounted to approx 10 x wedding cost (his) and five times (mine). Since then costs have only escalated, and we are not divorced yet!
