“Marry me!” These are the words most women long to hear from
the lips of her loved one.
After the cherished words comes the wedding planning.
However, it seems to me that weddings are trending to competitive instead of
romantic. Too garish, showy, and kitschy, instead of elegant, classy, and
The ultra-wealthy have begun to make a mockery of sharing
marriage vows. It has became a contest of who can invite more people, have
better entertainment, and spend the most on their wedding gown.
Weddings should be intimate affairs to celebrate the next
stage of your life. Family, loved ones and close friends should fill the seats
and share the moment with the couple.
I say, let’s bring weddings back to their true form and
forget the glitter, glamor, and glitz. Let’s lose all the excess and let the
loving spirit of the ceremony shine through.
