Just wanted to add – while I thought the article was funny, I kind of don’t think it’s fair to tell Bees that they can’t / shouldn’t be offended by it because it’s presented in a jokey tone. We can all judge for ourselves if we feel something is funny or not – if some Bees didn’t find it amusing, they don’t “have” to just because I did! Saying something in a humorous tone is not a free pass on any and all dissent (sorry, this is a sore point with me and it involves my BFF and Howard Stern, loooong story!)
I know for me, if he was ‘joking’ about how lame outdoor-fall-vintage-winery weddings are, well, he and I might still have words, humor website or not…

I needed to read that. Still pre engagement but plenty of thoughts and plans dancing in my heads…and just like the “sugarplums (that) danced in their heads” in the NIght Before Christmas, we don’t need to consume all of them!

@Moose1209 – I do not feel personally attacked by the contents of his “article”, and I’d prefer it if you didn’t assume I dislike it because I feel attacked. I dislike it because it’s ridiculous. There is no hidden meaning for my opinion – I think it’s stupid. That’s about as clear cut as can be. Especially considering it’s coming from someone who has clearly never been connected to a wedding before. It reeks of bitterness and immaturity.

I think it’s rediculous that he probably gets paid to write stupid $hit like that.

I love and agree with every last word!!! I want to print and shove it in the face of a friend of mine next time she insists I’m crazy and will change my mind *giggle*
We will not being having:
Rehearsal dinner, engagement party, bridal shower…not me.
Obnoxious D.J (our D.J is only to speak when he introduces US, our wedding party will not be announced, everyone knows who they are.)
Staged pictures (umm. no. Real only. Why would I want pictures of things that never happened? When will I be standing alone at the alter in my dress…?! NO.)
Honestly this article made my night.

Haha, this was funny.
We will however be having children at our wedding and a cash bar (we are paying for beer and soda) so I am guilty of some of this but it’s still funny!

This is a silly, entertaining article. It was written by the “resident single guy writer” and is obviously intended to reach his target audience… other single guys. Whether or not the content represented legitimate feelings or not, it was written both to amuse (guys like him) and incite (women who do those specific things at their weddings). He’s just being obnoxious and snarky because he’s paid to write as that character.
It’s an excellent piece of tongue-in-cheek satirical fluff, really. This lovely community of Weddingbee is well known for supporting every couple’s wedding decisions regardless of personal opinion, so I find it unlikely that anyone would read this and say, “oh well this dude said he hates religious ceremonies, so I’ll just call up the ol’ church and cancel.” His one-liners and little zingers are just that — good comedic timing in humor writing — and I’ve taken them as such.
Oh, and I’m forwarding this to my mother. She’ll love it.

I loved it! 🙂 It got me to laugh out loud, and on some I caught myself saying “what!? Really!?? I love that!”

I’m a Maid/Matron of Honor and will be giving a toast on Sunday so I found this part hilarious!
“Even worse than going into too much detail about the happy couple? Making the toast about you. Hey, tipsy maid of honor! Nobody cares about how much the bride helped you through your really rough breakup and melanoma scare. Say something sweet about her generosity, tell the groom he’s a lucky dude and sit down.”
