08/23/2005 Entry: "Wedding mania, even in the UK"

"The global nuptial cauldron steamed and belched and, eventually, produced the humble English wedding. It took place in church, starred a vicar and some hats, the congregation retired to the village hall to drink tea and eat sandwiches. In 1950, the average cost of such a happenstance was, in today's terms, about 600. Objectively, it was only faintly offensive. (People in love, of course, are almost always offensive - they lick each other in restaurants and think it's cute - but the ritual itself was downbeat and the nausea was manageable.)"
Oh happy day, In 1950, the total cost of the average wedding was the equivalent of 600. Yesterday it emerged that today's guests are expected to pay 300 each just to attend. How did something that is meant to be a celebration of love become a nauseating carnival of excess? By Tanya Gold, The Guardian, August 23, 2005
