I understand this concept too. It seems to be a personal choice. I am really not sure myself. Is it about the bride? The couple? The family? Or is it socially pushed upon us? It seems personal.

I have some big questions about the fairy tale idea of a wedding versus the actual spiritual implications. It seems 30,000+ has very little to do with the faith and more to do with impressing others or pleasing ourselves.
Weddings - not marriages - do not have to be about religion nor between a man and a woman. Even historically the "one man/one woman/all about love" idea that the conservative religious right wants to promote these days is historically inaccurate.
