Church Wedding vs Civil Ceremony


For married couples did you choose a church wedding or civil ceremony? I think a civil ceremony would save money but won't be as grand as a church wedding.

Couples tend to overspend on grand church weddings, some even go into debt if parents don’t pay. That gives them too much stress in their early married lives. I now believe in the civil ceremony, keep it simple and don’t try to impress family and friends.

We had a civil ceremony. Spent next to nothing on the wedding, which suited us just fine as we were moving to Asia a few weeks later and needed money to settle down.

We got married in a private chapel so had a church ceremony. It wasn't expensive. We had the most wonderful day but we didn't spend a fortune or go into debt. We had a small church wedding and reception in a hotel. My mother in law got married a year after us and I planned her wedding. She also had a church wedding and it wasn't expensive. It is all the extras that make weddings expensive and no one notices them anyway.
