The Wedding Dress Markup
Weddings! They are so expensive! I have come to that age where all my friends are getting married, so I have five weddings slated on my calendar this year, which means: plane tickets, hotels, gifts, parties, and a very sad bank account.
Of course the bride has it the worst. I mean, besides getting to marry the man of her dreams, or the woman of her dreams in select states, of course. But spending thousands of dollars on the perfect dress is stressful, and I am glad I won’t ever have to do that. But Planet Money’s Caitlin Kenney looks beautiful in that dress, and even more beautiful when she discovers that she totally got ripped off.
I know that if it were up to me, I would just choose one of these J. Crew dresses for less than a grand, and call it a day. Also, read that last sentence again because it will explain to you why no one will ever want to marry me.
