Types of marriage: Some different wedding ideas

When someone mentions the word wedding what do you think of? A big church or manor more regal than the Queen’s pantyhose, a long flowing wedding gown as white as the groom’s face at the altar, or perhaps just the stag do that will end all stag dos. Perhaps that is a tad presumptuous on our part. Not all weddings are big and white and fluffy. Not all weddings are bookended by unsightly quantities of booze (although you may argue that, as a guest, some of the best are). Some weddings have alternative traditions, steeped in equally prevalent historic value. Others have zero historic value, but they’re fun all the same.

To haggle or not to haggle

In Asia they have a saying. ‘Good for me, good for you.’ This is often announced by street sellers once they’ve reached their final bargaining price. It means you’re getting a good price, and they can still make money from the transaction. But here in Europe you’d probably get some funny looks if you started trying to negotiate the price for an item of clothing at your local Debenhams.
