Woman Holds Wedding and Aunt’s Funeral Together to Cut Church Costs

Woman Holds Wedding and Aunt’s Funeral Together to Cut Church Costs

That’s one way to cut cost, right?

Sadly funeral and wedding cost have risen over the years to levels that make it hard for some to have either. One California was in the process of planning her wedding when an aunt died and to help with cost she combined her wedding day with the funeral.

Posting on social media she said:

We are all deeply saddened about her loss but we promise that we will not cancel the wedding next week. In her honor, we know that she would want us to celebrate and have a day filled with love and joy

I would also like to add that funeral costs are skyrocketing and we will have an open casket session during some of the wedding processions.

Feel free to stop by during the wedding to say goodbyes, she will be on display for those who wish to gain some closure.

Remember, even though losing ones we love can be heartbreaking – there is also a joy in celebrating love and partnership in marriage.

We are excited to see you all there on Saturday

Is this brilliant and practical or just plain wrong?
