The Perception of Marriage
"Marriage is a fine institution, but I'm not ready for an institution."
– Mae West
For any woman to become a beautiful bride, it has proved to be an overbearing, daunting task. I mean, really, an induction into The Wives Club involves spending six to 12 months (and in some cases two years or more) of metamorphosing into a raving bridezilla. She travels up and down the weight rollercoaster, experiences high levels of stress, and nearly has a nervous breakdown all to plan an overly priced, one-day celebration?
The bride-to-be flashes her soon-to-be role on a bedazzled top as she plans to create her royal day. There’s so much to do. She has expectations to meet. She perceives her wedding day to be the most important stage in her life.
After making some final decisions on the venue and menu, she then goes three rounds of eliminations to see what lucky individuals will make the final guest list.
In the end, she invites everyone: her childhood friends; associates; distance relatives; all of her coworkers—to lessen the chance of hurting someone’s feelings or leaving them out; friends of the bride and groom’s parents; oh, and the acquaintance she hasn’t spoken to in five years.
All for what?
For her invitees to create a gossip column the moment they tip-toe out to dictate how elegant, how hood-rich, or even to mimic the actual classical story she attempted to re-create?
The perception of “getting married” is truly flawed; nevertheless, I still love weddings. They bring out the most sentimental feelings. They make me feel so sappy inside. It never fails. There’s just something about seeing the spotlight on the bride-to-be and then catching a glimpse at the groom.
