How may of you are very close to your young male cousin? Probably not many, but I tell you I am lucky enough to be close to one. That cousin of mine lives in CA now and had recently got married. The wedding was for family and close friends only and so they didn't bother to send wedding invitations to anyone. I think they made a right decision because by so doing, they saved money and uses it to more important things then needed for the preparation of the wedding. We did the same thing when hubby and I got married. My in-laws also paid for the reception and foods as well; and the only thing we paid for was hubby's tuxedo. We were very blessed to have such great parents, aren't we?
