I don't understand weddings.
Sure, the happy(?) couple want to let everyone know that they are taking vows together. I get that.
Since you're all there, let's have a party afterward. I get that.
Starting a life together requires lots of stuff that you maybe never had before, so wedding gifts are a reasonable idea. I get that....
What I don't get though is why we would be invited to come the day after the wedding to watch the bride and groom open 5,000 wedding gifts. I don't get that at all.
A bunch of people have driven up to an hour to sit in a tiny apartment and watch two people who have just got married open countless presents. Frankly, those two people would probably rather be in a state of undress that they have never been allowed in together before (i.e. they'd be naked if it wasn't for all the spectators) .
It's not like the onlookers are going to get anything from it, it's not like they even gave more than one of the presents.
Someone help me understand this.
What's the excitement in watching people open presents?... I just don't get it.
