The Big Day Is an Expensive Nightmare for Men

July 18, 2006 8:22 PM

Stephen Rannazzisi, a series regular on the ABC wedding comedy “Big Day,” knows just how expensive the big day is.


At the show’s press tour session Tuesday afternoon, Rannazzisi announced he was getting married in a few weeks, and said he's been stunned by how much of a production a modern wedding is -- particularly when it comes to the invitations.


“I thought it would be like $120,” he said of his wedding invites. The actual total came to four grand, a number that stupefied him.


“I want a bald eagle off eBay,” he said, “or a Guatemalan family.”


Co-creator Josh Goldsmith (who is married to the show’s other co-creator, Cathy Yuspa) was sympathetic, noting that for men the stationery store is comparable to “the gates of hell.”
