What would you prefer - getting married by a traditional ceremony like in a church or temple using all the rituals we grown up with or do a registered marriage? Thing is cost of everything is going up and so a lot of people are now preferring to go the modern way, get married in a court and use the saved up money for their future. What have you done/would like to do? Share your views on this.

I never really dreamed of a traditional wedding.. i think i'll prefer a civil wedding. Yes i want to wear a gown, prepare my wedding invitations, list all the guest, pick a cake, call friends and spread the exciting news. Then everybody will be there to share their best wishes. But this will also mean large crowd. It is not about the cost.. (well, maybe i'm concern a little about the cost) it is about being bound with someone you love and i want it to be private as possible. I like the idea of being wed in side a court, i think it is more romantic and solemn, more personal. People who are there will only be close friends, family. They will not look at anything else except the bride and the groom, because there is no gown to criticize, no flower girls to take care of. You know what i mean? Oh, and yes, it is cheap. lol

If i were to get married, i will still choose the traditional way and that is to be married in a church. For me, marriage is a special event in a persons life and i want it to be memorable and to be in a sacred place. getting married in church may not mean spending a lot of cash, once we stick into the budget and just invite the people closest to us is enough. I would love to experience the joys and stress of the wedding preparation like planning, buying the giveaways, sending invitations and a lot of stuff.

I guess we get married only once so we should not compromise and should get married the way we want to.

I was married in a civil wedding meaning the court wedding which only lasts for 10 minutes or so. I didn't feel like being married at all, i want a church wedding maybe when we can afford it coz its very costly to be married in church especially here in our country with so many relatives to invite. I plan to be married in church in our fifth year anniversay.

Simple ceremony without so much noise. Some of the wedding traditions are too demonstrative indeed. I dislike it.

I agree with you..some marriages are like that..they spend so much money that I wonder where they get it from. In India, about a 1000 odd people are invited for marriages and the bride and groom dont even know half of them.
