As weddings have become larger and more complex, couples have been forced to either save or borrow money to bring off their big day. The couple now provides an entire event day rather than a ceremony and reception. These couples view the wedding day as the most important event in their life. They want to share it with friends and family in the most memorable ways possible. To do this, they are overstretching themselves financially.
One of the largest problems modern couples have today is dealing with money issues. Many spend more than they can really afford for their wedding day. After the wedding and honeymoon are over, couples must drop back into the world of reality. Money has often caused marital problems. Wedding expenses, especially when the money has been borrowed, can get a marriage off to a rocky start when the bills come due.
