So it looks as if this is going to be a bit of a thing each Wednesday, and this week I want to go on a bit of a wedding rant. (Remember the rule from last week, First one to call me Bridezilla, gets it)
Now the one thing that I have discovered about weddings is that the word WEDDING makes everything more expensive.
Want a pizza? That will be £9.99, free delivery and the option to buy a dessert as well. (I'm hungry)
Want WEDDING PIZZA? Oh well that will be £47.50 and you have to name your first born child after us.
Don't get me wrong, I will pay for quality. I am not looking to skimp anywhere. I have paid for my photographer without even shedding a tear, I have hired a wedding car that cost more than my first car, and I have shelled out for the most expensive dress that I will ever wear, fully aware that I will only put it on once. I pay for professionalism and skill and quality.
The addition of the word wedding to anything can pretty much double the price immediately.
Pink glitter? Oh that will be £3. Oh it is for your wedding? £33.33, it is WEDDING GLITTER. It has hearts in it and everything. IT SPARKLES.
Can I add that I am not using pink glitter at my wedding. (Well not at THAT price, I'm not)
Even tiaras, you can buy tiaras everywhere, Easy, Ebay. Individual, hand crafted, beautifully designed, watch the wedding section be three times as expensive as say the prom section.
I need white shoes, if you search wedding shoes, you can find wedding shoes everywhere, white, cream, gold, how about white, cream AND gold? You can find them easily, FOR A PRICE. I just need white shoes. Plain white shoes. I REFUSE to spend £200 on a pair of shoes just BECAUSE they are wedding shoes.
Runs to Google to search White Shoes.
I am not being paranoid here am I? Who else has found this mark up on things that are "wedding" related?
What is the worst case of wedding mark up that you have seen?
OR should I just shut up and hand over my money?
Let me know.
