me: how's wedding planning going? Excited for the small/destination wedding?
cw: well...wife's family veto'd that; we're doing the big 200 person thing
me: too bad, I think small weddings are more fun/intimate, and a lot less expensive than the big circus wedding
cw: yeah, we stated pricing things out, we could do $30k "on the cheap" but if we're going to do it, we're going to do it right, probably will be more like $50,000.
me: poker face...long pause
me: yeah, got to enjoy it and all that...thinking, sure, spending the AVERAGE ANNUAL american HOUSEHOLD income on a one night party for yourself makes sense
