Ack, huge gaudy rings are just not my thing. I would rather save the money too, there are so many other more important things it could be spent on. The same goes for weddings too, I personally don't like the idea of spending the equivalent of a down payment on a house on a silly ceremony. I'll likely get stuck with a fancy ceremony knowing my luck, have to keep the families happy.

My cousins wedding was like $40,000 or so (Dad recalls it being between 30 and 50,000), it was insane! $2000 for cut flowers, ack! I think it would be cool that if I had my estate already when getting married to have it there. I plan to have extensive gardens on the estate so I would not need to buy flowers, the garden itself would be the flowers and I could get cut flowers out of it if needed. Though I hate picking my flowers.

I'd rather leave the flowers on the bush/in the ground

Me too, I generally never pick mine and get mad when others do.

Default Anthropomorphic

I gave my mother a pastel I did of an anthropomorphic daffodil talking to a bee.
