Weddings Back Then

9 May

With our wedding exactly 360 days away, my mom has been going through some old boxes filled with momentos from her own wedding. She sent me the receipt for what her wedding cost back in 1983. All I can say is…..wow. I would have dealt with the 80’s bad hair and heinous fashion if it meant things were this good and cheap—–>

Thanks to inflation and 30 years, a wedding at this same venue would cost about 13xs that.

We decided to wait until we “needed that much room.” By the time you and Christian arrived, that amount of money quallified us to enter a bidding war for a fixer upper just beyond the edge of the PV zip code.
