Hurray for this couple! More people should follow their example. A wedding is not to impress other people, or to please relatives, but to join two people in love. Massive debt is no way to start a marriage.
I don't think people need to indulge in reverse ostentation to prove they're serious about marriage, etc.
Just have a less expensive wedding overall.
I'm a little annoyed with the comments like this, which are basically backhanded slaps at people who actually did spend money on their weddings.
And yeah, there's nothing there that makes me think there's any accuracy to the text.
I think it would be funny if the bread slices were some sort of cultural or religious symbol, and the rest of their wedding was actually pretty expensive.
