so you got divorced and to celebrate the event you have a trash the dress party, that includes spilling wine, dirt, whatever it takes to trash the wedding gown.

My contribbution is limited to the dress which I will make.

I am kind of in this camp. It's a declaration, in front of family, friends, and God of your life long commitment. I think that is worthy of celebration.

That said... I think that while planning and budgeting for said event, that the bride and groom need to keep in mind what is important, and while the celebration is a nice bonus, it's only one day in a lifetime full of *events* to be celebrated.

I can see that. We only had very close family and bridal party talk as I don't like it either.

My parents paid for my dress and grandparents my headpiece and veil but they never tried to tell me what they wanted. They let me pick out whatever I wanted.

To me there are few things in life that are VERY important and worth spending the money on.

Yep, I agree.

It all goes by taste and finances.

Mine was everything that I wanted. There was nothing that if I had a larger budget that I would have needed or wanted.

I do think that there is a point where it's too much. Just b/c you can spend a ton of money on frivolous partyware doesn't mean that you should.
