    Like other people said, it's usually people from Spanish speaking countries due to how j and h are pronounced. Might be some typos if it's someone in the US, but everyone from the various Spanish speaking countries does that.

    Well, even weddings where there are like 100+ guests and some big production like the frilly dress, all the expenses...any wedding that costs $5k+ seems ridiculous to me. I'm probably in the minority here, and I understand the need to celebrate with family and friends...but the traditions are so ridiculous and overpriced now. ANYWAY...

    interesting. i do understand what you mean, i understand the appeal of a small intimate affair without the bells and whistles. but i do get it. i imagine cultural diefferences would have a lot to do with that.

    +1. Not that I believe in marriage anyway, but if I was dumb enough to go through with it, I think a nice small ceremony on a beach or some scenic vista is enough. 10-20 very close people. Some good food, lots of booze, and you got yourself a happy wedding.

    My sister had a pretty small wedding (~40-50 people) in the garden of a B&B our friend runs in our hometown. 20k. Have you ever been married?
