Not because I don't believe in marriage, or think a wedding is a waste of money. Instead, I simply have read far too many horror stories.

Tales of drunken Scottish groomsmen accidentally flashing attendees, an elaborate wedding cake being dropped on the floor, a bridesmaid vomiting into her bouquet and the bride's dress being ruined in the wheel of the horse-drawn carriage. And these are all just examples from my own family circle.

Given I'm 23, I will perhaps change my mind on this resistance towards weddings and marriage later in life. Maybe I will mature as an individual – or find a certain special someone who will convince me otherwise that weddings are a must-do. But until then, I will continue to devour nightmare wedding stories with a combination of shock and laughter – and I implore you to do the same.
