Credit Crunch Weddings

As the economy plunges screaming over the cliff, it would be reasonable to expect people to postpone their wedding plans indefinitely in the hope that "things can only get better". Oddly enough, that doesn't seem to be happening and hardly a day goes by when I don't get a call or an email from couples who've already booked a date sometime during 2009.

In the States, Big Fat Weddings are 'Out' and Elopements are 'In' - which in simple language means that people are skipping the expensive reception and opting for simple ceremonies where the focus is on the meaning of the promise between two people rather than the price of the dress. Sounds as though the humanist message is getting through there too.
