When my cousin Sheila got married it was a tough wedding. Sheila and her husband didn't have ANY money. They had plenty of friends and they were active in their church. The church ceremony was great but a few things were lacking. For example, the bridesmaids' gowns were actually the choir robes turned around backward. I felt like I was having my high school yearbook photo taken.
Sheila thought that they looked great. I am second from the the left, I tried to do my best with the neckline, but it was kind of a lost cause.
I don't know if it was true or not, but someone said that the flowers came from a funeral that was held the day before.
Oh well, that was years ago and Sheila is now quite wealthy. She and her husband are among the few people I know that started earning before they started spending. Go Sheila. I love you cousin.
