…is what we’re going to try our darndest to avoid during our wedding planning process and the event itself.
But what is the “Wedding-Industrial Complex”? I realized that some of my readers who don’t read wedding blogs quite as fervently as I do may be unfamiliar with this term. So I tried googling it, looking for a good definition. Turns out, there really isn’t a dictionary-type unpacking of the term anywhere on the Interwebs.
But, of course trusty Meg of A Practical Wedding (my new favorite blog) has an awesome post about the WIC that ends up providing a pretty clear definition. So you should read it, here, and then come back to me. It’s pretty short and sweet and awesome and if you understand it things will make a lot better sense from here on out, as I’ll probably be mentioning it a lot. (I mean, the horrible beast is everywhere!)
