Got married to a non-frugal person so the wedding was cheap by comparison. Still happy and only half as frugal

We did exactly the same. One used it for a down payment last year and one is spending it on a wedding next year. Since it was a no strings attached gift, we are good with both.

Not too frugal. My husband and I spent loads of money but we enjoyed our wedding tremendously. It's one a life time thing, especially if you don't want to divorce.

No one pays "alot" for their wedding, but some people pay a lot.

No, I did not pay a lot. (Please note this is TWO words..."a" and "lot", which can be replaced with "much").

$30. We got married in 1985 in front of a judge. We have been married 31 years. Some years long some short.

We spent about $3500 not including engagement ring or honeymoon. Wasn't trying to be cheap. I'm just not an extravagant person. We were only engaged for two months and found a lot of end of season deals. I had won $400 in Vegas a few months previous and had banked it. I felt like I had put it to good use.
