Are they nuts?! I have three daughters and I told them each that they needed to keep the costs under $3,000 and they did. The family did a lot of the flower work and we found inexpensive venues for the activities. I told them if they are still married after 20 years and I am still around, I would give them $10,000. Who wears the pants in your family?
