Sometimes receiving a wedding invitation becomes more than a joy, it becomes a death sentence, not of life, but of summer vacations, of the whim that you were going to give yourself with the extra pay or simply of your free time.
For one reason or another, what should be a reason for joy is cut short along the way by economic issues. To the sum of expenses, which usually goes up if you go as a couple, there is also the question of how much to give at a wedding, a question that we answered a few weeks ago in this post which we linked precisely.
Yet we are, majestic plural, at war against love. Or at least against conventional love, since there is a lot of talk about opening the melon of saying no to a wedding or that if it is an invitation it is not understood why you have to pay an “entrance” price, something that It seems that, according to this journalist specializing in sex from 20 Minutes, the English have already resolved in their own way.
Do you think weddings are a robbery? 👀 A lot of people do…

According to Mara Mariño, @meetingmara, what the English do when faced with such a diatribe is the following: as standard they give the couple 50 pounds as a gift and apart from that, each assistant is responsible for paying for the drinks that they consume throughout the day B. This method is very English without a doubt.
However, we do not believe that it is something that has a great future in Spain, since the concept of wedding that we have here is very different from that of abroad in almost every way. Here the gastronomic part and the party are the most important, so it would be difficult to consider something like this, since it is something that also defines us.
Another thing would be to talk about the fact that it can be quite passive-aggressive include a card with an account number next to the invitation and if we already curled the loop, turn off and let’s go with Tamara Falcó and Íñigo Onieva! With minimal transfers and a select list of weddings, despite the couple sharing a house for a long time, we understand that they will have everything they need for daily life.
The logical thing would be that the bride and groom who consider saying “yes, I do” have some basic savings, so to speak, to be able to cover the big expenses of the wedding, since day B is also something that has changed a lot and nothing guarantees that the attendees will pay for their cover, so you have to organize yourself thinking that you have to take care of everything. If then there are guests who are kind enough to give a gift, well welcome.
In addition, it is very important to make a wedding according to the possibilities of each one and know how to establish what the priorities are, thinking about everything in a meditated way, that is why it is essential to know the advantages of having a wedding plannersince it is a professional who will also guide you on all this.
