    Ok... So just when you think you've heard it all....

    Welcome To Our Wedding Site

    Someone is looking to have corporate sponsorship for their wedding?

    I hope no one knows these people... I just think that is strange... Has anyone else heard of this?

      OMG!! - they have a lot of sponsors!

      Two months ago someone at work mentioned this to me. He said his cousin did it and they live in Vegas. He said they saved a lot of money and got a lot of stuff for free.

      Personally - I wouldn't do it. My initial reaction is that it's tacky. I guess whatever floats your boat.

      To each his own KWIM?

        Star Jones (formally of The View) did this! She had a ton of sponsors and would mention them on the air. She was known for having a big tacky wedding to Al Reynolds! But to each their own I guess.

            I think it is tacky, yet brilliant!

              In my honest opinion... it is a pinch genius... but a

              BOAT LOAD TACKY!

              I mean.. "hey, this round of bowling is brought to you by.... bride and groom!"

                I'd heard of this, but never really understood it until I checked out this couple's site. It seemed like a clever way to help finance your wedding, but as others have said, tacky! Now, I just think it would complicate things SO much! This could turn a desire for a low-stress, fairly simple wedding into a complete nightmare. Especially for all of us DW brides...bringing extra "freebies" along with us in our bags...ick! It might work well for some, but I still wonder if it'd really be worth it.

                  Oh, and would you be able to turn away a potential sponsorship? If, say, you didn't want to have anything to do with the bowling alley or something, could you just say, "Sorry. No thanks."...but then say yes to the free wedding consultant? Strange.

                    I love it.

                    All these wedding related vendors are trying to get over in you in the first place just because you're a bride (try telling a hotel you are having a "dinner party" and ask for a price, then call back and say you are having a "wedding reception" and watch the price double) so I love flipping the game.
