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!
