A little notice in the Times...

The New York Times called last week to ask my opinion on the numbers of elopements, compared to traditional weddings. It was fun to see at least a sentence or two end up in the paper today in the Style section under Like Romeo and Juliet - with a happy ever after".

Of course they didn't use most of the interview (that's journalism) - but we also discussed the reasons for the growing trends in elopements and private weddings, which are only partly economic, and also include a growing interest in ecological & green weddings, an interest in smaller, family weddings & being married at home, and the increase in 'destination' weddings -- I noticed they did keep my comment that couples are worried about imposing larger wedding costs on their friends and families. Anyway, it was fun. The same reporter was at a lovely small house wedding on Friday, featured in the Times on Sunday.see above. It's nice to see these small informal weddings getting noticed as a trend.
