Any thoughts on the exasperating high cost of clothes and all the trimmings required for these musts in our life..........Weddings and Funerals?
The costs of both are escalating at an alarming rate.Of course there are options, but in both instances we do tend to do the best we possibly can,so feel we are fast being taken advantage of.
Be interesting to hear about the ones perhaps out of the norm and where corners have been cut,costs kept to a minimum and yet no one felt cheated, but found it remained a moving Service and all that goes with it.
Black clothes have notoriously carried a higher price tag and I think the sooner we rebel and perhaps opt for colours the better.Many are doing just that,and quite frankly, can you blame them?
After all the deceased will be no better or worse off!.
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.
Have you planned something special for the day you hang up your hat,or perhaps you don the" could`nt care less" attitude,after all you will not be around and truly compus mentus to enjoy or hate the Service!!
Of course Weddings can often be a case of following “The Jones” and that can be a real headache........especially to one`s bank balance.
Weddings of course are a totally different story from Funerals, and I suppose there will be many watching and drinking in all aspects of the forthcoming Royal Wedding ...........planning one as near to what they will have witnessed despite the huge cost?!
We may have partaken of the Wedding part ourselves already, but we all have "the other" at some point of our lives.............this we cannot escape!
