Hopefully this can teach us that we dont need to spend tens of thousands of dollars for one nights party,
Does the bride and groom (sorry don't know the Jewish names) make back in gifts what the wedding costs?

I doubt it. In our communities people get invited easily to over 30 weddings per year.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I paid for our wedding and it was a net plus. Guessing most basic weddings are that way. Many like to have an idea how much a plate it is. They will give that plus a gift (mostly monetary).

Do you think people would give that much at today's prices and if they got invited to 30 weddings per year?

The Jewish names are Chaim Todres and Chasheh Dvoshah

When I got married my Mom wanted to know what everyone gave (she was old school). She would basically give the same.
A busy year for us would be 5 or 6 weddings.

At that pace (no more than 6 per year) that makes perfect sense. But as I said, that is not the case in our communities.

+1 could easily be that month in a month from family only
May you slide down the banister of happiness & get many splinters of success up your career.

Remember our families do not have 18 kids each.  ;)

Right. Which is the reason for the difference. Even at half that number of kids, with (hopefully. Definitely a stated goal) of getting married no later than the early to mid twenties, and with this virus ravaging around, you should have gotten your math lesson about exponential growth.

FTR, even with my married daughter and her family staying with us, we are still slightly short of 18 people in the house at the moment.

Math was never my week (now a certain member won't know if I am doing it on purpose) point.

I guess original credit goes to Pittsburgh for the idea, Crown Heights just scaled it up.

@CountValentine, how many of these do you think it's reasonable to attend? I was happy to take part and attend this one despite being barely third circle.
