Oh man. This just made me eyeroll so hard. I can't stand most of their features.

'Making it a destination wedding was great, because we knew that we could invite only the closest people to us – basically those who mattered and to who would make the effort of traveling all the way to India because we mattered.'

I suppose I appreciate someone being honest about their reasons for having a DW. idontknow

I do wonder if GWS edits their brides' and grooms' commentary to sound as arrogant as possible. I attended a GWS-featured wedding; in the feature, the bride mentioned how she didn't want a wedding that was like what many people do in our region – a statement that had a whiff of smug superiority. The thing is, while I don't know the bride very well, I always hear about how she's genuinely sweet and kind – never snarky or judgmental – and I'm guessing GWS prodded her to take a swipe at "traditional" weddings. (Or, maybe she told them that while she enjoyed her sister's "traditional" wedding, that type of event wasn't what she wanted for herself, and GWS twisted that statement so it sounded like she declared that all "traditional" weddings suck.)

The wedding was lovely – I loved it because it was indeed different from every other wedding I've ever been to. But there were logistical issues with the food, seating and music, which you couldn't tell from the gorgeous photos. The focus was clearly on the decor, and the couple was definitely hoping to be featured in a magazine – I joked to my sister that it was like Pinterest threw up all over it, before Pinterest started to suck. Being a guest at such an overly styled wedding was an eye-opener, because it showed me that even those events aren't perfect.

Finally, I swear when I was browsing GWS, one of the featured weddings was an outdoor ceremony that was still held outdoors, when it was f**king raining. The couple didn't want to move it indoors because an indoor ceremony wasn't their vision. I highly doubt their vision included rain, either – but then, holding it in the rain would help it go viral. Imagine being a guest at such an event, and your makeup and (possibly expensive) dress and shoes get ruined because of someone's shallow vision. rolleyes

That's what I was thinking. In a day and age where social media features are like gold to people it's just depressing that a person's wedding, the whole focus of their wedding would be 'how can we get this featured?' instead of, 'how can we best express our love to our families?'. I don't know what is/isn't genuine anymore! And that is why I have wine. oregonian_winesmiley

 

I just had a really funny/strange thought. It reminds me of The Hobbit. People have a sickness to hoard social media followings. chin

Yup, this was earlier this week! I forget which wedding but I remember reading it and thinking "you paid how much for all of those nice things and then just stood in the rain?!"

I got pump shoes in pink, worn them to a wedding, had them on my feet for about 5 hours. They fit great, very comfortable, and most of all, they left no blisters or sores on my feet, just got one more pair in another color…overall …highly recommended.

I've attended a few overly styled weddings since our own (right before Pinterest came on the scene). They were nice and beautiful weddings, but one I remembered didn't feel at all like the couple beyond their ceremony readings. Everything around them just felt so wedding coordinator-y. The other couple (an Indian wedding) had elements of themselves and their families in it where a huge wedding still felt like you knew the couple and who they were about. I have such a love/hate thing with Pinterest. It's good for somethings and terrible for weddings where everything has to be a styled thing.
