Weird Wedding Trends

Heading to a wedding this year?

You may notice it’s changed a bit…here are some current wedding trends from Your Tango that may have you scratching your head:

Weed Weddings. These green ceremonies are becoming all the rage in states like Colorado and Washington, where pot is now legal. Couples are serving cakes laced with marijuana and giving out joints as party favors.

The “Half Moon” Bridal Party Photo. The latest rage in bridal party photos features women tucking their dresses into their underwear and showing off their bottoms. Why? Who knows.

Food Trucks. The older generations think it’s a joke, but the younger ones love getting in line to scarf down on tacos and pizza from trucks rather than sit down for stuffy four-course meals.

#WeddingHashtag. For the younger generations, it’s a great way to keep track of photos that are posted on social media. Everyone else just doesn’t “get it.

“Beta” & “Presidential” Marriages. According to TIME magazine, when given the option of several marriage models, 43 percent of millennials pick the “Beta” model, which means that “the union can be formalized or dissolved after a two-year trial period.” Meanwhile, the “Presidential” model entails that, “Vows last for another four years, but after 8 years you can elect to choose a new partner.”

Trash the Dress. Screw preserving your dress dress so that it lasts forever and ever. The latest trend is to completely trash it and take photos of the destruction. If this sounds reasonable to you, may we at least suggest you donate it?

Professional Bridesmaids. It might seem weird, but New Yorker Jen Glantz offers just this service for those who need it. Think about all the drama you can avoid if you just cut all your friends out of the equation and go with a professional bridesmaid? Sometimes strangers make for better bedfellows, no?

“You’re Not Invited’ Cards.” Yes, it’s rude. But these cards serve to dismiss all of those obnoxious people who probed to see if they were invited to your wedding. If you have to ask, you probably aren’t getting an invite.

Zombie Weddings. Thank The Walking Dead. Ever since the show started, it has encouraged fans of zombie pop culture to go above and beyond, seeking out makeup artists who can make them look like they’re the undead. How… sweet?

Jen could be talked into Zombies…or maybe Ninjas…perhaps At-Ats?
