This post is very late. It was supposed to be up about 6 days ago. The cost of me spending the entire weekend (including last thursday) with my family and my man and attending Sarah and Chris' beautiful wedding was me not posting this blog. But, it did give me something interesting to write about.
Disclaimer- I am a female, I think pink. Blue people (males) may not quite understand this one.
The cost of a wedding isn't just the amount of money spent on the dress, venue, and flowers or the time spent pulling it together and actually performing the ceremony. A wedding means a person is committing to spend there entire life with the person they say "I do" to. That means they have given up all other options. The "cost" of marrying a person is everyone else you could have potentially married. Sarah and Chris gave up all other options forever the moment they said I do. Sarah found Chris so amazing that she willingly gave up all other potential suitors, and vice versa. So, the cost of a wedding (or marriage, really) is all the other people you could have been with.
Opportunity cost is everywhere.
