Weddings are one of the most exciting and significant ceremonies in our society. Weddings are also big business. If you recently had (or have been a part of) a wedding then you will easily recall the abundance of rules, advice, accessories, pieces, parts, and people that must be coordinated for the blessed event. If you have not been in a wedding, watch an episode of Bridezillas and you will get the picture.
Six to 18 months before the event, if not years before, the blushing bride to be will start her search through wedding magazines. These books are thicker than dictionaries, and yet multiple titles publish every month. What else could possibly be said?
My sister had her wedding on July 7th of this year (yes, at 7 pm). Her boss thought she might get a laugh from a mock wedding magazine cover created by the artists at SomethingAwful.com. She passed the image along to me (and other friends and family) and I was inspired. Her wedding was a wonderful event with wonderful stories surrounding it. From this rich soil I harvested a bushel of great headlines. But what if we took the wedding magazine another direction? Imagine the futility and lunacy of a huge wedding magazine for, not brides, but grooms. Viola, Men's Wedding is born.
With a guilty conscience, I admit I might actually read some of this. Click for the original image which is a more readable.
