Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams has said fairytale white weddings are the biggest threat to the institution of marriage.

He argues that the "immense marketing in this experience, which you go through on your wedding day, after which nothing is ever so good again."

So, can having a stunning white wedding really ruin the reality of marriage? Or is a big blow out party something everyone deserves?

He added, "As a society there is much yet to resolve around male roles, and we need to take a long hard look at the marketisation of marriage. This, I believe, poses the greatest threat to long term-successful marriages."

He's not the only one who thinks big-money weddings are a bad idea.

Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith has also warned that the celebrity-inspired weddings are forcing couples into debt and making their lives a misery.
