PracticallyEverAfter was created by a group of friends who all got engaged around the same time and discovered how ridiculously expensive weddings can be. After a few months, the girls were all hanging out together along with their soon-to-be hubbies when a bit of an argument broke out.

After a good debate, it turned out none of the grooms were upset with the cost (they wanted their gals to have their perfect weddings), they were just worried about what all this early spending meant for their futures. “Why should we start our marriage in debt?” was the question of the evening. It also became the inspiration for this blog.
