Weddings in Japan Are Expensive
Wouldn't it be great if you could offset the cost of a wedding through crowdfunding and donations? Getting married here in Japan costs twice as much as it does in the U.S. While me and the future Mrs. Pittman are thinking about moving back the States in a couple of years, she's got a contract she really can't get out of, so we're getting married here. Also, I don't have many friends left back in the US—having lived in Japan for 15 years—so getting married here makes the most sense.
Getting Support from People Back Home
So I got to thinking, "there must be people not in Japan who'd like to give a wedding gift, right?" Buy Me a Coffee seems like the perfect platform for this. You can make a small donation to the wedding/our future life together, or even make an on-going donation through the member subscription. Hell, you could do the membership on the condition that we stay together. 🤣
