Weddings: They're all about the dress
That said, I am disturbed at the possibilities presented by the Today's show choice to open their annual "Modern Day Wedding" contest to same-sex couples. Don't get me wrong, I applaud the decision. But, what if the winners - and no offense to my gay male friends - are a couple of guys?
Today's competition allows its viewers to select the winning couples' wardrobe, rings, wedding party outfits, reception venue and honeymoon destination. Then, they broadcast the early-morning ceremony LIVE during the show. (Talk about pressure reciting those vows!)
I'm sorry, but I just can't get excited over mens formal wear, or wedding bands, for that matter. They can't hold a candle to wedding dresses and ring bling. Unless one of the pair is a drag queen, I'm pulling for a lesbian wedding, or a run-of-the-mill straight affair.
