Destination Wedding: Home Edition

Planning a wedding? Yes, you could spend tens of thousands of dollars and pull your hair out hiring a planner, renting the venue, buying the flowers, ordering a cake and booking a band. Or, you could get married in your living room and invite your friends and family to view it online.

Like this couple did.

Join TJ Holmes and Betty Nguyen weekend mornings in the CNN Newsroom, beginning 6am ET/ 3am PT.

    I absolutely adore the idea behind the small very comfortable wedding. People still get married in city Halls, it is smart, wise, and yes it is "cheap (for Betty Nguyen)" but that does not mean it carries any less of a value, nor should others be so lame in offering their prejudiced opinions. Not everybody's parents are rich that their children can inherit substancial amounts of money; there are a lot of people who come with a dime intheir pocket and start their lives with foundations laid on hard-work.
    People have to start thinking about saving and planning their finances for retirements first, healthcareand then back, for mid-life (e.g. childrens educations), and then lastly wedding. If you are 40 yrs or younger, forget about your soc.Security benefits, you are not gonna get'em. Unfortunately with a culture where people spend almost foolishly on grand weddings when one cannot even afford it is something that needs a second thought. If that doesn't take out the guy then the next thing that will is sho.

    I think weddings are overrated. Majority of them are for the show, just watch a stupid shows as the bachelor for an example, I mean the guy says he is in love with tree women at the same time, talk about not knowing what love is. I almost wanna say a lot of women want to get married for the sake of having the reception, a dress etc., kind of like doing stupid shows just to get on TV. All the wrong reasons. Often, I believe they actually plan a divorce with the wedding. But in the end I vote yes, only if we get to watch a divorce on TV as well, a model of new American love – I love you till I want to bang someone else.
