Pathetic. Absolutely Pathetic.

Apparently, David’s Bridal is marketing very heavily to Bridezillas.

You know, those women obsessed with a wedding and not a marriage. Those women who’ve been on the prowl for a groom and not a husband. Those women who want to get married to satisfy their own goals, not to create a real partnership. THOSE women.

This new commercial is enough to turn the stomach of any viewer who has thought that this new bride culture has gotten completely out of hand, over-the-top and just plain ridiculous. It encourages women on the edge of silliness to fully indulge, because that man standing at the altar will just go right along with it anyway. David’s Bridal said so!

As a mother, I shudder when I see this commercial. I certainly don’t want my daughter to think that a wedding is all about the bride. I want her to understand that a wedding is just a celebration of the start of your marriage, your partnership, your walk through life, hand-in-hand with another person who understands your very soul.

And if some woman were to treat my son like he was “just a cog in this big machine,” I’d be the one that jumped to my feet when the officiant asked if anyone had an objection to the union. 

Speak Your Mind
