Here Comes The Bribe

Recognize the difference between ‘must-haves’ and ‘over-the-top’ expenditures on your big day!


Think of a wedding. You most likely pictured a bride and groom, not a bribe and gloom. A wedding is meant to celebrate life and love; yet, it has become a glamorized excuse to demonstrate socioeconomic superiority . The popular “keeping up with the Joneses” mentality gives one insecurity in the driver’s seat when it comes to decision-making, creating a ripple effect of consequences. The exploding wedding industry strategically markets this simple occasion, presenting many “luxuries” as “needs” while pocketing $72 billion of your life savings annually.

Do you think wedding expenses averaging $26,000 are justified or just-not-right? Press PLAY to:

  • Set your wedding day apart with the most sought-after, desired, essentials
  • Recognize a good deal from a great scam
  • Create life-long memories of fun on a reasonable budget
  • Experience the highest quality of celebration with your loved ones
