Weddings are all about love, compassion, and commitment. Such sentiment should extend not only to the people, but to the entire event.

For example, do I truly need little droplets of crystal hanging from my flowers? What does this extra drop of “bling” (a word, by the way, that I never want to hear again after it being mentioned 35 times in a “We” channel wedding special) indicate about me, anyway?
Vegans are in a unique situation for weddings because no one really knows what to expect from them.
