oh dear. as the blogs struggle to create a place where weddings can be diverse, where there is acceptance even if you have different ideas. Where the engaged couples are allowed to be themselves and do what is right for them. In a world where cliches and trends have taken over the mainstream and even "indie". We exist simply to share our joys and struggles and provide a soundboard to people who understand what we're going through.
And then there's TLC's "Four Weddings". Four weddings, each of the brides attend each other's wedding and SCORE each other. The highest score wins a "dream" honeymoon. Ugh. Way to officially turn weddings into a spectator sport with winners and losers. People essentially paid to critique everything you put into it and creating the ultimate competition. grossssss.
