All’s Fair In Love & Non Wedding Bookings

There are so many anniversaries in my family at this time of y ear.  Having said that, it is now the most expensive and busy time of year for any celebration at all.  In fact folk have really taken hold of the commercial value of the word Wedding.  It doesn’t matter where the venue is, if the W word is uttered, then the quote goes up by 10 grand immediately.  We tried to hire a marquee the other year to celebrate a joint birthday and anniversary bash.  The W word was never mentioned & I was given a quote. But when I rang back to confirm, I was told an error had been made and it would be several hundred higher.   When challenged as to the reason, the clerk hit upon the W word as in wedding anniversary . . .  I put her in her place and moved on, no booking from my family went there!
