Not every wedding I get as a feature submission works out. Sometimes I can’t make heads or tails of the questionnaire (you’d shocked at how many folks can’t construct a simple sentence). There are other times when it’s not a fit stylistically. I’m not exactly sure what that means, but it’s an option I get to reject a feature on the wedding marketing platform where I recieve submissions. It’s like the nicest way to say, “Thanks, but no thanks.”
Sometimes I get weddings submitted where I’m all, “Holy craptastic wedding overload!”
I fear posting the ‘holy craptastic’ weddings. I’m afraid to send out my quirky questionnaire to the fancy pants people with the fancy pants weddings. I shouldn’t be, but I am. I mean, what if the cool girl with the super-pretty wedding doesn’t want to play with the crass girl and her effed-up sense of humour?
I have an answer. I have the solution…. Avoidance. I can post the occasional Unfake Wedding sans questionnaire, right? I don’t even have to go there. I don’t have to chance rejetion of said questionnaire. I can simply post the photos. Y’all can swoon, drool and share with me my wedding envy, right?
So in celebration of my fear of questionnaire rejection, I’m proud to present a Mindy Weiss wedding! I. Am. So. Fancy.
