"We'll NEVER stop reducing our lives' most important moments to Internet fodder," vow nation's Millenials

Latest trend: bridal parties running away from some Photoshopped menace in the background.

I think its cool. Its their wedding, let them do what they want. Besides, I do get a kick seeing how the old uptight coots get all bent out of shape over it.

This is right up there with the "trash the dress" photos where the bride is photographed in a situation that destroys or damages the wedding dress; e.g., floating in a pond. They have no respect for the institution of marriage. It is just a weird and wild party for them. I really wonder why anyone makes a fuss over Gay marriage. Straight people seem to have lost all respect for the institution.

After the wedding, it is traditional to party.

[quote]Even hitting glasses with an eating utensil to get the bride and groom to kiss was considered vulgar until fairly recently.

I know for old folks they get confused, but something that has been occurring for like 30 years is not what one would call a recent event.

by Anonymousreply 2506/14/2013

R25. Actually, in the scheme of things, 30 years is a recent event. Some of my collector sites even argue that 30 years is not old enough to use the word "vintage".

Your are correct that the acceptance of vulgarity started about 30 years ago. Publishers and wedding magazines printed what they thought their readers wanted to read, not what was correct.

Sure, if you're 90. Let the youngsters have their fun gramps. Its not killing you and its not like they are going to invite a stuck in the past old fart to their wedding. Although I do admit, seeing some old coot like you get all pissy about this is sort of funny. Sucks to be you.

by Anonymousreply 2706/14/2013

R27, no, it "sucks to be you", if you think life is all about fun and games, and not about obligations, responsibilities, commitment, and other not very fun realities of life.

Trashing an expensive wedding dress just because you can not wear it again, shows extremely poor values.

Turning such a serious commitment as marriage into a poster for a Japanese horror movie, indicates that the couple do not really take the vows that they just made seriously. Apparently, the marriage vows are just as much a "goof" as being attacked by monsters.

I'm 57 and I remember people clinking glasses with utensils at wedding receptions when I was a kid. So it's been more than 30 years.

by Anonymousreply 3106/14/2013

Yes, people did it 30 years ago, even 50 years ago, but that just means that were recent immigrants or Italians.

by Anonymousreply 3206/14/2013

R31, I never said it wasn't done. I said it was considered vulgar. It was generally something done by low class males who considered weddings too feminine/female oriented, and needed to be disruptive to mark their territory.

I specifically said that well trained servers were instructed to anticipate such behavior and stop it before the utensil touched the glass.

by Anonymousreply 3306/14/2013

The digital watermark would seem to indicate it's a special feature offered by a wedding photo studio - perhaps even a selling point when couples are comparing different ones.

It looks more enjoyable to do than all of the [italic]de rigeur[/italic] "stand in front of pretty scenery" pic's.

Funny, R33, that seems to describe Miss Manners Nazis like you as you prevent the guests from tapping their faux pas.

by Anonymousreply 3506/14/2013

It's the women who tinkled the glass. Men were too busy talking sports; they're not looking at the bride and groom. The last thing the men wanted to see was kissing. Kissing is romantic. That's for females.

R42 You are being way too kind. Troll-dar on other threads shows R33 is a lot older than fortysomething. A fortysomething would know an AT-AT when they see one and not confuse it for something from a Japaneses horror movie.

A friend of mine was asked to be an usher in the wedding of an aerobics instructor about 20 years ago. The wedding party members were going to do some kind of soft-shoe dance routine. That was the first any of us had heard of this kind of thing.

R43, I turned 50 in March; so, I am not 40 something, but I am not "a lot" older than 40 something either.

Uh no R54. Having to do a stupid choreographed dance or run screaming down the street pretending to be scared? Most people hate having to go to weddings. Hate even more being in them. This takes it to a whole new level of DNW.

Just tell me where to send a check (any amount is worth avoiding this mess). I'll be sitting by my pool, having a drink while the other people who didnt have the guts to say "WTF, no thanks" are all making asses of themselves.

by Anonymousreply 5706/16/2013

I agree with both r54 and r57. Asisde from the actual legally required acts to be married, the rest is a show.

Still, I want it both ways- if I'm made aware that I wasn't invited, I get put out about it; if I'm invited, it's an imposition that I can't get out of.

Initially, I think they're pretty humorous. Wonder how they'll explain the photos to their kids when they're old enough to ask.

by Anonymousreply 6106/16/2013

Why do you assume their kids will be sitting around looking at their parents wedding album, R60? I've got two kids in their late teens. They have never shown any interest in seeing my wedding pictures. Just like the "big day" itself, no one much cares but the bride. But some brides (like these nancissistic fools) assume 'their' wedding is the event of a lifetime for everyone else as well.

BTW-- what's to explain? It's not like they're naked.

R62, you sound like you need a drink.

When I was a child, we went through all of our parents' photo albums, including their wedding album. My friends' kids tend to question some of the sillier things their parents are doing (and wearing) in photographs.

Being chased by a faux monster while you're in wedding regalia would seem to be one of those things kids wonder about that prove adults lack good sense. Or they may be entertained. Who knows?

by Anonymousreply 6706/16/2013

R62, Obviously you have raised your children to have no sense of history or intellectual curiosity. The fact that your children have no interest in their past is just another reminder that you are a bad parent.

So says the man who thinks Star Wars is a Japaneses horror movie.

by Anonymousreply 6906/16/2013

R69, You do realize that you comment would be a punchline on The Big Bang Theory? The joke being anyone who is that obsessive about Star Wars is an idiot.

And FYI, I knew the reference. "Japanese Horror Film" just shows more contempt for the picture. One could just as easily argue that the form is actually derived from 1950s American Sci-Fi poster art, rather than Japanese Horror films. Again, 1950s Sci-fi doesn't convey the same sense of derision.
