Weddings, Weddings, Weddings

One of my younger friends has been marrying off her kids.  In some families it seems so easy.  Tonight was one of the weddings.  Lots of young families, all looking so happy.  In this crowd hardly anyone is single after the age of twenty.

Weddings aren't cheap.  A friend who's marrying off the fourth or fifth of about eight, said that prices have gone up tremendously.  When they made their first wedding, they were able to "make a deal" with the caterer to simplify the meal and save a lot of money.  Now the caterers refuse to "down-grade" their "style" and look G-d forbid cheap.

All and all, at this point, I'd prefer those problems...

I have a vague hope/prayer that my children will marry someone local and we'll have weddings under the Shomron sky, as cheaply as is respectful for the most important moment of their lives. Unless, G-d willing, we're back in Gush Katif. The Negev has the best food, the biggest portions and the cheapest prices!
Mazal tov to the newlyweds (my neighbors ;) !
