Tacky

May 31, 2007 01:13 PM

If you're going to have a wedding website--a pretty dangerously tacky idea to begin with--do not say things like this:

Marisa Stones, manager at a financial-services company in Bermuda, used her wedding blog to keep friends and family members up to date on her engagement ring: "The ring has a three-stone setting. The middle stone is a princess-cut diamond, .74 carats, clarity of VS1, and color E," wrote Mrs. Stones. "The side stones are amazing sapphires that weigh about half a carat altogether."

What a completely inappropriate thing to say to anyone, much less broadcast on the web!

How about this pair?

Chris and Anna Saccheri chose to tie the knot at a chapel in Las Vegas largely because the place offered streaming video. On April 15, at 4 p.m. Pacific time, friends and family could tune in on www.vivalasvegasweddings.com, where they got to see the couple drive down the aisle in a pink Cadillac, get serenaded by an Elvis impersonator wearing gold lamé, and see a dozen guests in a conga line.

They picked the location of their wedding because it offered streaming video???  Can you imagine?

It's been just under a year since The Big NBS Wedding.  Several people urged us to do a website.  I am really glad we didn't.  Not that we would have ever been so crass.  But still!

Ahem. A year you say? How could it be that I have yet to see even one single photo of said event? Hmph.

I've seen that photo before. As someone who knows what you actually looks like and remembers when you lost a tuxedo jacket at the Delt House, I think I deserve to see a real photograph.
