Why to avoid wedding committees

Last week, I got a message on Facebook from someone who claimed was my class mate in primary school.

I have not seen her or talked to her for more than 10 years and she wanted me to be a member of her wedding committee. I ignored the request.

There was a time when it was a big honour to be asked to help organise a wedding. It was enjoyable.

The committee’s task was simple and not filled with too much politics like today. One was required to give support (not necessarilly financial).

People have abused the role wedding committee plays. I have reasons why you should avoid wedding committee at all costs:

The couple blackmails you

You are forced to pledge ammounts of money that are illogical and astronmical. Some amounts are so much that the future bride and groom ought to feel ashamed.

Please explain why I should pay for your stupendous wedding? Who said you must have a big and lavish wedding when you can afford a modest one.

It’s time consuming

In this age where life is so complicated, it is beyond understanding why anyone would require you to meet constatly in some didgy hotels for wedding preparations. The meetings are tiring and they end late in the night.

Kills friendships

Wedding committees are all about milking money from friends and family.
