Facebook billionaire's low-key wedding

Being a practical bride, I have always been on the look out for alternative choices and affordable options for anything and everything wedding.

Being able to stage an offbeat, unconventional and budget friendly one, I have been an advocate ever since.

That's why I couldn't hide my excitement when I read about Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan's wedding.

For those who doesn't know, Mark Zuckerberg is one of the co-founder of our much beloved Facebook which made him a billionaire.

Given his financial capacity, one would assume that his wedding would be grandiose and extravagant. But not this guy.

He and fiancee, Chan, had a surprise wedding ceremony and reception at their backyard which the couple planned in roughly about four months. 

Food was from a local (affordable) restaurant and for a touch of nostalgia, desserts were the chocolates they ate on their first date.

How low-key is that?

It just goes to show that all that flair and fanfare isn't really necessary to get wed. Very much like Christmas, we've been victimized by the media into thinking that it does matter when it really does not.
