Now don’t get me wrong. I am all for the single, unmarried life. The motive of this article is not to pressurize you peeps into getting hitched, because let’s be honest, we all have imaginary, fictional boyfriends in our heads that we are in a fully committed relationship with. However, that doesn’t mean that we cannot be completely, obsessively preoccupied with weddings. How many of us have private Pinterest boards filled with inspirations and details of our imaginary wedding? I know I do.
Just like I have planned out every single detail of my imaginary future wedding, I have also spent countless hours of my life going through a gazillion wedding and pre wedding photo shoots. For the people in the photos, it is the perfect opportunity to get the perfect shot that will be framed forever. However, for those of us ogling at the photos, it is just another catharsis for the cheesy sap that is or true selves.
