wedding: not a rental experience

You rent the tuxedo. You might even rent the dress. You rent the venue, the table settings, the caterer's time. But you cannot rent the experience of getting married.

You can rent toys for your kids. But you cannot rent your kids; to put it mildly, this is a long-term commitment.
