Is it normal to spend a lot of money on a wedding?

Assessing whether or not the dowry is worth the same as a house is reasonable, of course this depends on the financial capabilities of the person concerned.

For a party that only lasts a few hours, of course it is not wise for someone to let their savings run out immediately.

No matter how expensive a wedding celebration is, the most important thing about a wedding is life after the party. A person will enter a new phase of life which will of course be faced with new financial challenges.

Those who used to be able to live frugally are now challenged to be able to support and make their families happy. This of course has an impact on increasing spending, including plans for family holidays, plans to buy a house, plans for children's education costs, and so on.

Even though there is a desire to have a simple marriage in order to maintain finances in the future, family demands can force someone to abandon this intention.

To anticipate large expenses in financing a wedding, all forms of expenses should be prepared well in advance according to financial capabilities.

You can start allocating money for wedding savings every month from 10% of your income.

The longer the time period for preparing wedding funds, the easier the process will be. Vice versa, the shorter your deadline, the greater the funds you have to set aside each month.

It's not just about marriage. Other matters such as costs for preparing for the birth of children, education, etc. should also be prepared well in advance while you are still productive at work.
