Don’t throw a party you can’t pay for.

@maladroite:  said…

Haha! Now I’m imagining getting corporate sponsors for a wedding… For the first time as husband and wife, Mr and Mrs X, brought to you by Pepsi! You could have an ad page on your programs, use a RedBull vehicle as a getaway car, promotional t-shirt cannons at the reception, sell naming rights to your firstborn, QR codes on the invites…

Sadly it HAS BEEN DONE already.

Anyone remember that huge tacky affair that Star Jones had when she married Al Reynolds.

The affair was bigger than most royal weddings… but unfortunately, money and media power, can’t buy you class or happiness apparently…

From Wikipedia…

Jones married investment banker Al Reynolds on November 13, 2004.  The much-publicized wedding was held at Saint Bartholomew’s Church in NYCity in front of 500 guests, and featured 3 MOHs, 12 Bridesmaids, 2 Jr Bridesmaids, 3 Best Men, 12 Groomsmen, 3 Jr Groomsmen, 6 Footmen, 4 Ring Bearers and 4 Flower Girls. More than 30 corporate “sponsors” donated wedding attire and merchandise for the event, in exchange for mentions in the media and on Jones’ website.

and of course we all remember how that turned out… the couple divorced in 2008.

@TwoCityBride: @brendaray2009: I am in total agreement.

This is just appalling. I mean, if this kind of thing actually flies…

Hey guys, I’m having a lavish dinner party, BUT I can’t afford it – so instead of bringing a hostess gift, why don’t you just hand over some of your $$$ to help cover the costs?!!

 

Barf.
