When Fans Plan: Get Married’s Times Square Wedding

With Thanksgiving down, it's time to move on to the next batch of holidays on the horizon. And if you’re a Get Married fan like I am, you’ve surely heard about the awesome Times Square wedding they’re hosting this New Year’s Eve.

Since this celebration is part of a giveaway, one lucky couple has already been chosen, and now, it’s up to the fans to help plan their wedding by voting for the best gown, favor, bridesmaid ensemble, and more. I’m having fun casting my votes and watching the process unfold, but at the same time, I know I’d never want to have a wedding like this myself.

Sure, I love blogging and sharing tons of details about my own wedding, but for many of the same reasons I wouldn’t want to appear on other reality TV shows, I wouldn’t want my day to be quite this public, or to allow others to have so much control over the vendors and items that were included.

Even so, I can absolutely see how another couple might disagree, viewing this as an incredible opportunity to have a unique affair like no one else has ever before experienced. Oh, and then there’s also the important fact that the wedding is free to the incredibly deserving winning couple, two Marine reservists who met in Iraq.

What do you think? Would you consider being part of a wedding extravaganza like this?
