As an avid Howard Stern fan, recently on the show Jason Kaplan talked about how he had to take out a $15k loan to help cover costs for his wedding. He already had $30k available for cost, but apparently that wasn't enough. After being close to 2 weddings (my sister and cousin) I can say that my wedding will be a very intimate ceremony, with just close friends and family being invited to a nice dinner, as opposed to a wedding at a church and then ceremony following. But since not everyone is like me (thank GOD or else our country would be in BIG trouble,) how did your wedding go? Was it a huge extravaganza or a nice intimate affair, and what did it put you back money-wise?
