Chicago Fire - Chief Boden's Wedding Ceremony (Episode Highlight)
Modern weddings put marriage at risk, says Church
Many clergymen are worried that marriage is taking a back seat to the growing extravagance of modern weddings.
The perfect wedding is many womens’ dream, but with ceremonies becoming increasingly extravagant, a senior clergyman has spoken out, voicing concern about the sincerity of the day.
Rev Dr. Giles Fraser, Canon Chancellor of St. Paul’s Cathedral, referred to many modern weddings as ‘overblown vanity projects’ influenced by those featured in celebrity magazines, which threaten the very value of marriage.
He said, ‘The problem with the modern wedding is that it’s too often a glitzy stage-set, overly concerned with the shoes, the flowers, the napkin rings and performing to the cameras.’
In addition to the expense of the wedding, there is the cost of the honeymoon wardrobe and fitness memberships or weight loss treatments to ensure the bride is looking her best.
The call to rethink wedding day priorities follows a string of surveys charting the escalating costs of modern weddings.
The price of tying the knot reached a staggering average of £21,089 last year, while a decade earlier the figure stood much lower at £9,380 including costs for the venue, catering, attire, rings and the honeymoon.
