We love weddings because they celebrate love and the union of two people, and, of course, some love the idea of free food and booze.
But whatever the case may be, we believe weddings are not like birthdays, where you can tolerate mishaps, random planning, and then console yourself that next year is still another year for a better party.
A wedding needs proper planning. It needs effort and proper research, even if it takes three years to do so. I mean it’s only natural to assume that things like weddings only come once - well, unless you’re planning to divorce or something tragic happens to your spouse. But either way that’s not an excuse to be negligent when planning your wedding.
On Sunday night we were introduced to Wesley, 47, and Faith, 34. I don’t have a problem with their age or them getting married within ten months of meeting. I don’t think there should be a time frame set for couples to get married if they feel they are ready and love each other. So why not?
But I must say I’m highly disappointed in Wesley and Faith. I don’t know whether to blame it on their age or on the poor planning?
I want to start with Faith’s wedding dress, which also happened to be on top of her wish list. No amount of words can explain the disaster that was the dress. I cringed when I saw her walking out in her dress. I don’t even want to mention her waddling in heels; truly speaking I don’t think Faith really wanted to get married.
Let’s discuss the cake - it looked like something from a Valentine’s Day promotion. I think it’s safe to say this couple planned their wedding in the 70s and stuck to their ideas decades later.
No research to the new trends or whatsoever was done.
Just when I was thinking it couldn't get any worse, Wesley and Faith left me disgusted. They kissed. Wait. No, they didn't kiss, they actually entered into a war zone of licking each other. Wesley just took out his tongue and started feeding his wife. It was the longest and most horrible kiss the nation has ever witnessed. I'm sure even aliens don't kiss like that.

I think in all weddings there's always that drunk uncle who will just be the centre of attention. In this case, it was Wesley's sister. Honestly, I think she took two sips before making the speech.
I'm not sure what she said because even Google failed to translate her English.
Then there was the dance step, I'm still shaking my head in disbelief. I don't know what was happening, but whatever it was, it looked like kids from pre-school rehearsing for their annual play.
I give Wesley and Faith's wedding a negative ten. There was no proper planning, plus I can't stop replaying that sloppy kiss in my head, and I'm not sure I will ever be able to forget it. I think kissing like that should be prohibited and listed in the Ten Commandments.
