I have said here before that I think weddings are (or they've become, rather) the epitome of what's wrong with America.
I think this story speaks for itself.
Americans have become narcissistic, greedy, Attention whores who lack any grasp of the "bigger picture."
Weddings put this into focus. They've become these ridiculous grandstanding circuses that have to be bigger, better, louder, and more expensive than the last guy's. They have become their own little dioramas of at least five of the deadly sins.
And yet, the sad thing is "getting married" has become just about "having a wedding"; the marriage itself is now second fiddle. Then of course, after two kids and five years the whole thing completely falls apart and those so-called "memories" become nothing but good fire starter.
