Let’s Call The Whole Thing Off
Sorry, I don’t mean to become The Knot or whatever with more wedding talk, but here’s one more interesting wedding thing I found via Neatorama. Apparently, “250,000 weddings are called off every year,” which disrupts the Wedding Industrial Complex because it leaves a bunch of venue and vendors hanging. But this Bridal Brokerage firm will buy your cancelled wedding so you can recover some of your deposits back, and resells it to couples who are looking to have “beautiful, pre-planned weddings at a fraction of the price.” Most couples have an idea of what they want their wedding to be, and part of the “fun” of putting a wedding together is tailoring it to their tastes, but if you don’t care about that, this might be option. My favorite part of the brokerage site is that people who are looking to buy a wedding have this Tiffany blue-ish page to visit, and people who are selling their wedding have this sad gray page to visit. Not so subtle, huh!
