Should I take out a loan for a wedding? What wedding traditions can be forgotten without fear? Is it even worth having a wedding? Without taboos and unnecessary modesty Chanfashion will answer questions about the wedding that newlyweds are sometimes afraid to ask.
Maybe we should take a vacation?
The most important question to ask before diving into wedding planning is: “Do we even want a wedding?” This is a rather labor-intensive event that will require a lot of organizational efforts and finances, so your desire must be unshakable 🙂
Even if a large part of the newlyweds decides to abandon the wedding in favor of traveling, buying a car or repairing it, we still advise you not to neglect this event. You will have many more joint trips, because you have a whole life ahead of you together. But to gather the closest people, pronounce cherished oaths and celebrate the beginning of family life, you can only once, having received a lot of unique memories.

Are bride price and other controversial traditions unavoidable?
Over the centuries, a lot of wedding traditions and signs have gathered, the explanations for which have long been forgotten. Either the groom can’t see the bride before the ceremony, then you need to put coins in your shoes for a rich life, and don’t forget to honk in the city — this should scare away evil spirits. Yes, some superstitions look completely absurd 🙂
If you are embarrassed or annoyed by some wedding traditions, then abandon them without much thought, even despite the dissatisfaction of some relatives. But if doing some rituals helps to calm down a little or just feels right and necessary, then why not observe them on your wedding day?
Wedding on credit — is it embarrassing?
Sometimes you have to turn to banks for support to make big purchases, and a wedding is no exception. If you don’t feel like borrowing from friends or accepting financial assistance from your parents, then a loan becomes a logical option for expanding your wedding budget.
There is nothing shameful in this, but it is worth thinking carefully about what exactly you want to spend the loan money on and whether you can pay off the debt without difficulty and delays.
How can we save money on organizing a wedding?
Some couples feel embarrassed because of the lack of budget or the desire to organize a wedding cheaper. However, there is no need to be ashamed of the opportunity to save money, because the rational use of the budget will help you organize a memorable holiday even with small investments.
First of all, determine your priorities. What is more important for your couple — a chic designer dress and groom’s suit or, for example, a richly set table at a banquet? When allocating your budget, prioritize your priorities and skimp on items that are not as important to you personally.

Do we need to invite everyone we know?
I want to share the happy moments of creating a family with the closest and loved ones. But do they include distant relatives with whom communication is limited, God forbid, to rare congratulations on the phone, colleagues from work, long-forgotten classmates and other distant acquaintances? Remember that each guest is an additional burden on the budget, and sometimes also a chance for negative emotions on the wedding day. Therefore, we advise you to take the list of guests seriously and think carefully about who you will really be glad to see on your wedding day.
Is it possible to do without…
A limousine, a banquet, the mournful speeches of the registrar from the registry office — at your wedding, you can refuse anything if you feel that some of the “mandatory attributes” are not about you. Singer Jerry Hale even refused the groom, organizing the wedding according to all the canons, but bringing wedding vows to herself 🙂
We do not agitate you to go to such extremes, but you can safely question all the other wedding “so it should be”. The main thing is that you like the concept of the wedding and each of its components, no matter how many traditions you have to break because of this.
