Three-day weddings are becoming the norm but Country Life has called for limited. We asked about the extravagant ceremonies youve been invited to

Country Life magazine has suggested duos favour quality over length when it is necessary to bridals, with ceremonies now the nuptial equivalent of an arms hasten. We requested our readers to share their experiences of the luxury weds they listened. Here is a selection of replies, with some figures changed to protect peoples identities.

Hannah, 46, Boston: She hired out an entire country club in Long Island

A girlfriend from university leased out an entire Long Island, NY, country club. First, it was incredibly cold. Who has bridals in New York in January unless theyre feelings sadists? This wouldnt have been so bad if everything had been inside, but the bride and groom are determined to take advantage of the coldnes and have ice skating on the frozen swimming pool of the golf-club. I cannot recommend not ice skating in an evening gown strongly enough.

Im told the cost for alcohol alone( with 500 clients) came to over $10,000, which had potential benefits of counting us to the excess. The highlight of the working day was when the brides ex-boyfriend pictured up uninvited and drunk. He stripped in the cold and demanded to speak with the bride was unwilling to threw his gear back on until she did. All the best bridals are distinguished out by either their wretched extravagances or their monstrou disappointments. This one had both by the carload.

I went to a lavish marry in Barbados several years ago, returned it into a holiday and stayed for two weeks. The marriage household stayed in Fustic House which expense 5,000 per nighttime. The majority of clients hired large-scale colonial-style homes on the Platinum Coast for the two-week point. Our live had two swimming pool and wild apes in the back garden. For the two weeks my partner at the time and I spent in the region of 4,000 -5, 000 between us.

In the week prior to the opening of the bridal, beach states parties and sucking generally started at 10:30 am. Lots of rum sours were sucked from morning to nighttime. Cocaine was sourced easily from locals to the extent that when different groups went into township the marketers brandished at us. Those who took drugs went to bed when I was get up in the morning at around 8am. One occasion involved going to watch Cheshire Polo( some of our group knew participates in the team ). We gratified the president of Barbados who piloted in his helicopter to watch the game.

I once attended an Anglo-Pakistani wedding ceremony at York Cathedral where we were chauffeured in individual horse-carriages to the Royal York Hotel where the bride and groom arrived by helicopter. The weather was pleasant as it was a hot summertimes period, but apache helicopters landing was a shamblings as the brides dress rent while she was get out. The bridegroom didnt is felt that inconvenienced though as he already had a bottle of something in his hand.

The wedding was certainly out of this world. Chefs were winged in from Pakistan to help with catering and my dad told me the grooms father took a second mortgage out to pay for everything there is. At one point I questioned how I knew these parties. It was like something out of a Bollywood film.

Steven, 37, Poole: After a few weeks even quad biking around the island and limitless drinking grew tiring

My friends got married seven years ago during a two-week long wed in the Caribbean. During the two weeks there used to be daily voyages on personal catamarans, a day-long seven-island craft tour, snorkelling off a ridge out at sea and a free barroom as part of an all-inclusive bundle for clients. The marriage itself has just taken place in the shade of some trees on the beach. Subsequentlies, there was a private disco and meal in a restaurant, must be accompanied by clubbing till 2am, then a casino. I wasted around 1,700 when I was there.

Prior to the marriage the bridegroom had a three-day stag nighttime in the UK followed by another one in the Caribbean. We had a race car driving knowledge, surfing readings and ringside fannies to a drunken fraca after the other stag ended up overdoing it. I must admit in the early stages of the second week I was ready to go, as the wedding was over and we were just waiting to go home our friends were standing there for another week for their honeymoon. Even quad biking around the island and interminable booze had not been able strangled the feeling that it was time to go.

In 2010 I went to the uniting of my ex-husbands boss. The ceremony took place in a very fancy Footballers Wives-type hotel in Surrey. Wed booked an ordinary chamber but the bridegroom had paid for everyone to be upgraded to suites with their own garden. He likewise moved 10,000 in cash the previous day just to pay for all the different entertainers not including the cost of the inn, food and liquors of course.

We arrived to a fibre quartet, and the acrobats emerged shortly after that and did a routine while we booze champagne before the meal.The starter was asparagus tart, and as there had been so much champagne before the dinner, there was a rush for the loo before the main course. The smell of asparagus wee when you opened the door to the maidens was extraordinary.

We then went into dinner where there were magicians wreaking the tables. Just before pudding, the servers burst into lyric the latter are good and it was actually quite funny. The whole thing was absolutely ridiculous and had nothing at all to do with two people donating their love to one another. And by 4am the hotel had only run out of champagne, apparently. Quite the most horrible and yet stupefying uniting Ive ever been to.
