I don't know why that story of that bride strikes me much harder this morning than it would at other times. But it does.
If I was planning a wedding now and read that I would promptly cancel all plans, grab my fiance, and notify our families and friends that our wedding would be taking place on [date] at courthouse so please come if you can, wear what you want, and join us for wedding dinner (our treat!) at Good-But-Cheap place we like. And that's it.
That story just seems the epitome of the wedding-related craziness we read about on e-Hell. And I think it's getting worse. It makes me want to hide my head and never come out in society again.;
