Oh god I'm glad i don't shoot weddings anymore lol. Clients try to get lowest price whilst expecting high end destination wedding quality. The schedule is BS too. Really experienced wedding coordinators are rare but a godsend if you're lucky enough to have one on hand to keep things moving on time and give advanced notice of what's happening next. I've also encountered coordinators from hell (or any other key people involved) who can make everything a nightmare. I've filmed and photographed plenty of weddings and it ruined weddings for me in general. If I ever get married (I'm 30) it'll be very basic. Weddings (especially for religious people) are basically just outrageously expensive foreplay so they can fornicate with a clear conscience lol

Try being a musician. When you’ve trained your whole life and have to coordinate the music, timed cadences, etc. and they want some specific pop song arranged for that specific trio of instruments. Then they think you’re worth $70/musician. It’s exceptionally out of touch. Just let Uncle Fred awkwardly stop the Spotify playlist when you get to the altar.

If she's a wedding planner then I could see this being a cool thing she does for her clients, but if this is the actual business then maybe I'm behind the times but this is the first I'm hearing of it and it just seems like an over-the-top kind of thing. I get that it's fancy and it's not as easy as a blackboard but it's not any different than a restaurant putting their specials out on one of these in front of the store. Just with a mirror instead.

Holy shit, I'm cynical.

I could see someone offering a range of crafty things (wedding specific or not) and this just being one of them.

Not sure it alone is a business model ngl, but it could also be a hobby kind of thing. It's pretty obviously more difficult and nicer looking than a blackboard thing imo.

u/thehappyevercrafter Oct 21 '21

Signage like this is definitely something you can do as a business model in and of itself. I teach students how to do this as businesses, and I myself do this for a living. It's time for people to start realizing that artists do not need to be starving.

You could probably do something clever by having a 2nd paint that binds well to the lower paint layer but not the mirror. Then just do a lighter coating of the upper layer and clean up any excess. You wouldn't need to write everything from scratch twice.

The more calligraphic parts are pretty hard, but the main lettering she used is actually really easy to pick up if you want to. I forget what it’s called, but it’s the way you’re supposed to write if you’re hand-drawing blueprints. Architectural alphabet or something like that. It’s really easy to find lettering charts to learn it, and it’s not too far from normal writing for most letters. Takes a bit of work to get some of the letters really consistent-especially ‘o’.

One of my first homework assignments in college for engineering was to literally write out all of my ABC's and numbers in the this format, it took a couple of hours. I remember a bunch of people sitting in my dorm doing our lettering after our first day of college classes and we were doing something that made us feel like we were back in first grade. I occasionally use it at work but very rarely. I do know how to draw awesome shapes and technical drawings from that same class.

I hand drew a bunch of drawings when remodeling my basement a few years ago and the contractor was insanely impressed they were hand drawn. He was so used to getting crappy napkin drawings or legit plotted drawings from architects. It's a skill very similar to writing in cursive, not very useful in the modern day but still appreciated by people.

u/Beowoof Oct 21 '21

Tradition and ritual everywhere usually involved a fair amount of "performance". If you take a day that's set aside for a culturally and personally significant event, you're probably going to add a lot of actions that are foreign to most people but wanted nonetheless.

For example, in American weddings at least, there is usually a dance with the bride and her father. I would bet that 90% of brides typically don't dance with their fathers, but this "performance" as we might call it is still pretty important to people.

I think what I'm arguing against is that while American weddings might not line up with your personal tastes and preferences, I don't think they're any more or less performative than weddings elsewhere. It's just a different performance.

Often times the mirror will be given (as part of the package) to the bride and groom as memorabilia. It’s terrible because they will never care about it again, but they don’t think about that when signing the check.

They don't have to keep the seating chart on it. What newly wed couple couldn't use a nice big mirror to watch themselves fuck?

I dunno I'd probably hang that up. Could be fun to like, cross out names whenever family drama happens lol. If anything, it's a big mirror. It's not like it's useless on its own

How come? Looks pretty easy to read, and it's huge. And you don't usually find out the seating arrangements until the wedding reception, where something exactly like this tells you :)

Fella doesn’t realize that weddings are about having things that look and feel nice. Of course it’d be easier to have a spreadsheet with names listed alphabetically - but it’s a damn wedding, and this looks really good.

Every wedding has to be unique otherwise it’s an abject failure

Find the right person. My wife and I had a COVID wedding. Me, her and two witnesses in a park.

I'd understand if she'd want more, but we got to marry each other and that's good enough for me

u/haydesigner Oct 21 '21

She wants more husbands?

u/NotBlaine Oct 21 '21

I'd say "more witnesses in a park" but that sounds oddly sinister to me...

ITT: People who are weirdly cynical about weddings.

They aren’t all that bad. If people choose to make memories through quirky trends like this, that’s their choice. Just let people enjoy things instead of sighing from a place of superiority over how unnecessary you think weddings are. Just let people enjoy things.

this angered me by reminding me just how god damn awful my own handwriting is, lol

Impressive and professional.

I feel like actually including people's names in a Reddit post was a poor choice, but otherwise cool

u/Spirited_Island-75 Oct 21 '21

I had no idea people actually had the last name 'Bourgeois'. I mean...that's something.

u/TrickOrTreatItsIEDs Oct 21 '21

Theres tons of people down in the south with that last name

A full name is not very useful. I suppose a list of names could be used to find the specific people involved by looking for social circles that match the list, but that's a lot of effort for no gain. All you'd end up with is a list of people. You could literally go on Facebook and grab a list of random names whenever you want.

My handwriting is really good and I do calligraphy and hand drawn typography, but omg I have issues doing it on anything where I can’t rest my hand against the surface. Stuff like whiteboards, windows, glass, shiny surfaces, etc. if I rest my hand it’ll smear but I need that stability of my hand against the surface.

I would’ve been a wreck doing this project! 😂

You’re all missing the real point here people! The cat! Why isn’t there more of it? Where did it go? What is it doing? Let me see it’s cute black and white antics! This the Internet, have you all lost your way!? It’s about the cat!

Holy shit, that handwriting tho, it's legit immaculate

u/cake-and-peonies Oct 21 '21

Very neat and elegant. I also like that the mirror could be reused. So many little things from weddings just get thrown out.

u/dinosaurs_quietly Oct 21 '21

Reddit is so unnecessarily negative about weddings. It’s her wedding and she made a functional decoration that she enjoys. Why on earth would anyone criticize that.
