Most Disturbing Wedding Advice

Maybe I should start an award for the "Most Disturbing Wedding Advice."

Here's the latest contender:

"Your wedding is a show. Your obligation is to put on a show that impresses the women, period. Forget about the fathers, the brothers, the uncles, the male business associates invited - plan your wedding specifically for the women planned to be in attendance. Give the women a good show and your wedding will be a success, guaranteed."

A wedding is not a show. It's a public declaration of intent, commitment, and love. It's a chance for friends and family to reconnect and forge new connections. It should be sincere and authentic.

It's precisely the "show" mentality that creates so much stress for couples and leads them to the point where they say, "I just want the wedding to be over so we can go on the honeymoon."

I have to wonder if the person who wrote that also believes that marriage is just a show.
It's sad.

That makes me sick. Weddings are not a movie to make everyone feel good and lovey-dovey. They are a personal event about the bride and groom. The W.I.C. needs to be censored for harmful propaganda.

What's funny is that the next piece of advice is:
"•There is no specific dollar range that ensures success. You can blow tens of thousands and have a public relations disaster."
Contradictions much?
