if you want for future of your friend, you can say: 'friend, i know this is your dream, i can help you for this. But, even if you have finish your wedding, what can you do for your future besides you have spend all of your money?' but, if you approve her dream, you can say: 'i think the better if you make a wedding with some of your money. And you can use other moner for walking your marriage.' how about you?

If she wants to save the money for their future then she can still go with her wedding dream- but in a simple manner. She can still wed on the beach with special guests that will save her from spending a lot.

that's what i been telling to her but the guest participant 300 people all of them are family relatives friends that's the reason she cant decide what to do

300 guests would surely cost them a lot. she must consider a lot of things- either to spend her hard earned money for one day or save it for the future.

How much did your friend save money? If she has a 7 digit or 1 million for her savings, The dream wedding will be fine. You have to get at least 300-500 guests if she wants to invite more guests. Hotel reception and church wedding is also important. Tell your friend to have a trip like going to Philippines especially Boracay.

Well, without a doubt, marriage is one of the important steps in the life of a person. Many call it "the day of YES," others "the most beautiful day of life," and so on. I think from my point of view it's worth it when put away money to invest in a dream wedding. Even if it's just one day, love above all else, I believe that your friends boyfriends deserve it after working four long years just waiting for the fateful day. That said, I also want to emphasize that money is useful for any other event in life.

oh that's really good, but why she is feeling bad about spending the money in one day, after all for that's what she saved her money. she should be happy as she reached the goal and saved what she want for. Anyways if she don't want to spend all the money then she can go for normal wedding and save the rest.

It is good to be practical somehow. but dream is a dream it is not payable by any amount. why is she spending all her money and not her fiance? isn't it a mutual agreement to share? If she intended to spend it for the wedding then why not go and spend. It is her wedding and it will make her happy why not.
