There is no rule, even in the Bible, that says that you must give your wife a wedding ring. How about giving her a gold wedding necklace as your symbol of love? And she giving a cute wedding hand band?
There is no rule that says you must feed everyone at your wedding. Restrict your wedding IV. If you cannot afford to restrict it, don’t bother yourself about food going round. Work with 150 to 200. Your real people, the people who would give you special gifts, will not eat at your wedding.
There is no rule that says your wedding must be on a Saturday. How about on a Sunday? Or Wednesday(You will know those who truly love you). How about doing the traditional and white wedding on the same day?
There is no rule that says that your wedding must be in a church building? How about a beautiful Hotel? Or a pool side?How many of your church members come for the wedding ‘sef’? Don’t you notice that the church halls aren’t really filled at the church service? Have your wedding at the reception venue. Let the pastor come there and give a brief sermon and then wed you both. How many couples listen to the long message on that day ‘sef’?
There is no rule that says that your wedding must be in the morning. How about an evening wedding?
