Some time ago i came up with a loose theory that weddings are more for women than men. Its something girls dream of from childhood while young boys are more interested in playing sport or the playstation.
The last couple of weeks have done nothing to disprove my theory as i have (including my sister) 4 female friends getting married and going through the planning stages for their weddings. One of my workmates even joked that she needed a cost centre to book her wedding planning against whilst sitting amongst a pile of ‘Bride’ and ‘Modern Wedding’ magazines.
One of the biggest areas of angst almost invariably seems to be the wedding venue as it sets the scene for that perfect vision to be built upon. Even there price and expectation vary hugely. One magazine had the wedding priced at $200,000 for the bride and groom and their 14 guests, but then not everyone wants to fly everything up to the Kimberly in WA to get married, and realistically, at that price not everyone can afford to. I’m sure that closer to home there are some great, and probably not so great venues.
For those who have had, or been to a wedding in or around Canberra, tell us about your experience, for good or bad.
