My thoughts exactly. Like ZOMG, how did this whole shindig get so blown out proportion and out of its ... mind? Like a "phallocentric fairy-tale grotesquerie" (30 Rock!) What happened to a quiet, understated, and totally intimate moment with one's significant other? Screw people's opinions!! They are irritating like raw onions.

One consultant at a wedding-industry conference told his audience, "You are selling dreams, and you can charge anything."Wat. WAT?!
As a response, this anti-wedding is a totally siiiiick haaack.
