The Bridal-Industrial Complex comes to Maryland

Since I make it a point not to follow these things, I had no idea that the latest couple allowing Katie and Matt to televise their wedding is semi-local.

Their tacky and overblown lavish and elegant shindig will be taking place in mid-September at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club in mid-September. Like the dress, the rings, and pretty much everything else about the affair, the location was chosen from 4 possible venues by “Today” viewers.

I suppose turning over the decisions on one of the most important days of your life to morning talk show viewers is a small price to pay for a “fantasy wedding” that you don’t want to pay for…

(I know, I know, so judgmental…. lol)

    I find weddings so overblown in every way already, from the ring, to the hype, to the expectations, to the day’s activities, that I can’t even bring myself to care, much less go to one.

    Granted, I might be a little extreme, having done a Bride and Groom Bubble Dash on my big day, instead of some formal ceremony. And if you judge it by my trip to Divorce Court two years later, you could try to make a point that I should care more about the commitment, but then you’d be really reaching.

    Hear, hear. The amount of money I hear people spending on weddings, not only the to-be-wedded couple, but also the peeps in the wed party AND the peeps who go. As my mom says, ELOPE!

    Btw, Chesapeake Bay Beach Club? Ugh-the “Today” audience is cruel. Have you been there? My company has their annual picnic there. That is NOT a real beach! But if it means PR for local business… congratulations!
