I have designed hundreds and hundreds of weddings, and I believe strongly in the sanctity of marriage. When two people say “I do,” they should be making a lifelong commitment to each other. But, unfortunately, that is not always the case, and a perfect example is Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries.
When I first heard that Kim had filed for divorce, I assumed their engagement and wedding had been a business deal, just another opportunity to make money and keep their names in the tabloids. But the more I thought about it and the more I read about the situation, the more I began to wonder if perhaps they had simply married too soon.
I’ve designed a few elaborate weddings that have also ended in divorce shortly after the honeymoon, and it always upsets me a great deal. You want the best for your clients, and you want to believe that their love and commitment to one another is strong and genuine.
It doesn’t help that Kim Kardashian also made a lot of money off of her wedding. Her profit makes the whole situation feel even more manipulative and wrong. Then again, all of the event vendors who donated their services for the lavish wedding have gotten a lot of great publicity, and that’s a wonderful thing for the wedding and event planning industry.
Dear Readers, I’m dying to hear your take on Kim’s wedding. Do you think her relationship with Kris was real or was the whole thing fake? Have you ever had a client divorce shortly after the wedding? Were you upset?
