I can’t speak to the authenticity of this article but the concept was certainly interesting. Let it be noted that in the pictures published, I didn’t notice any men. I wonder if this choice will affect this woman’s chances for getting married in the future. While I can’t imagine inviting my family and friends to a ceremony for myself, I can see where she was coming from. A wedding is something many women look forward to for decades and she didn’t want to not have the experience because of her lack of a significant other. I wonder if we’ll see these type of ceremonies grow in popularity in the coming years? Maybe it’s just me, but I can’t imagine spending thousands of dollars on a wedding without having a groom. But it looks like it worked for her.
