@Miss Bubbles: Oh jeez. I think you are trying a little too hard to read into this and make it something it’s not.  Perhaps you are doing all or some of these things at your wedding and feeling attacked?  It’s meant to be a funny little off the cuff piece.  Myself and my coworker who also just got married both laughed outloud multiple times, and we each did at least one of these things.

I’m not doing most of these things, and I still think he came across smug and annoying. He sounds like a blow hard who likes to hear himself talk and thinks his opinions must surely be the most valid. People who make comments like “Cash bar: wtf?” without grounding them in something are annoying. And I use that as an example, not of his opinion on a cash bar (I really don’t care) but to illustrate how anyone an say whatever they want without backing it up and that doesn’t make it worthwhile. Some of his lines are funny, but I agree with Bubbles — he tried way too hard.

I kind of want to invite him just to see him play the spoons. However I fear he’d lurch about and crush one of our friend’s children. Alas! 😉

so lets see, this guy is suggesting to do away with the ceremony, the celebrations, all wedding games, the toasts, the bridesmaids, dancing, the children…what’s left exactly?

If i wanted just dinner, I would make reservations at a restaurant. ;o)

Heh, I thought it was funny.  We are not doing a bouquet toss and everyone’s all “whhhhhyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy?” and I just roll my eyes at this point.  I have three single friends remaining.  Two of whom are in long-term relationships and waiting for a ring.  One of whom is sort of tragically single.  I am not in the business of humiliating my friends. 


I would LOVE it if someone played the spoons at our wedding.

Funny article – although it did make me think that…

Everyone has an opinion on what A Proper wedding should be

Those opinions are polar opposites half of the time


I was thinking this because I just read another article on weddings, can’t think where, that was annoyed by basically all of the opposite things. So I was contrasting his POV with the other one in my head while reading and got:

-Weddings are just carbon copies of each other! It’s so annoying! Be unique!

– Why do couples try to be so darn ‘unique’ nowadays? People use those traditions because they work, it’s just obnoxious when couples think they’re sooo darned special.


– Stop bringing little kids to weddings!

– Stop banning little kids from weddings!


– We don’t want all of these extra parties!

– I just paid for airfare plus a hotel to travel to your darn wedding, I totally want an out of towners dinner the night before and brunch the day after.


– No religious ceremonies

– Weddings are supposed to be about religion, why don’t kids these days understand that?


I suppose a few universal truths hold true – no one wants an obnoxious DJ in their face, or to listen to a long, boring toast…
