So, the WIC complex emailed me this morning, and said I absolutely positively, under no circumstances was allowed to share this article with you. And they must have been stressed out, because right after I got the email they called me and told me that they TOTALLY were not kidding, and they were going to ban me from the marriage club if I so much as whispered about it on this blog. But, knowing what being in the marriage club means to those people, I thought I’d pay my money and take my chances. Ehhh.
Key things the WIC doesn’t want you to know:
- Apparently the economy isn’t doing so well. When I heard the news, I did a quick google search, and apparently we’re having some problems because people were living beyond their means on credit? Hum. Anyway, apparently, YOU the engaged are not supposed to know about this.
- Some brides are starting to feel ripped off by the price of all things wedding related. They know it’s THEIR BIG DAY and also THE BEST DAY OF THEIR LIFE but somehow they still don’t want to spend 2K on flowers. Why? No one is sure. It’s apparently some glitch in the marketing system, and everyone is sure it will work itself out.
- Apparently DIY centerpieces and brunch weddings are in! (Note: we are focused on bringing you the up to the minute trends here at A Practical Wedding)
- The average wedding is going to cost a whole $28 less this year. This is not a joke. The new average cost of a wedding is going to be just $28,704, down from $28,732. The wedding industrial complex is a little distracted right now, since they are crouched under their desk whispering “Failure! You’re a failure!” to themselves over and over. So while they are otherwise occupied, run out to your nearest bridal salon. Maybe without proper oversight they put something on sale!
Just remember, if anyone asked you where you found out about all this, you didn’t hear it from me.
