Are Sponsored Weddings Tacky or Savvy?

All of the gossip surrounding Kim Kardashian’s wedding has kicked up buzz around the idea of wedding sponsorships again. Many people find the idea of a sponsored wedding inexcusably tacky while others insist that it’s a smart and savvy way to cut the cost of what is likely to be the most expensive day of your life. Most etiquette experts agree that you should steer clear of having any part of your wedding sponsored, suggesting that you cut the guest list or tone down your taste instead. After all, your guests are there to enjoy themselves and celebrate the love of two people they care about, not get bombarded with advertisements.

Invite a Little “Something Wild” to Your Wedding

Have you considered adding a little something wild to your wedding day?  And, no, I’m not talking about your hyperactive nieces and nephews or your eccentric cousin’s latest hairstyle. Some bold and creative couples actually bring wildlife to the party.  I’m talking camel rides, monkeys dancing down the aisle, and elephants marching through the streets of Beverly Hills. It’s been done, and it’s not as uncommon as you might think.   Kicking up your special day with the totally unexpected can be a big hit if executed well. I once incorporated real live penguins into a “winter wonderland” wedding theme for my clients.  Imagine everyone’s  delight when the little tuxedoed guests greeted them at the reception. Pure joy. Okay, okay. I know what you might be thinking. “Marley, that sounds fun and all, […]
