Nowadays, weddings are all about the "wow" factor. Anyone who's ever been to a modern wedding or seen an episode of Four Weddings will tell you that these aren't the low-key celebrations they once were. Things have definitely changed since our parents and grandparents walked down the aisle.
Although they were once a celebration of two people's love for each other, weddings have become elaborate displays of wealth and excess. It's like everyone's trying to outdo every other wedding they've ever been to, and they just keep getting bigger and bigger.
