The Washington D.C. wedding industry is in the midst of a renaissance.
But in recent years, the term “weddings” has become a hot topic on social media.
Some women and men have become obsessed with it.
We decided to look into it, and the answers to some of the questions you might have.
The Washington Free Beacon spoke with several wedding industry professionals, some of whom said that they’d prefer not to use the word “weds” anymore, because it implies that the wedding is a one-night stand.
“I’ve been married to my wife for 14 years, and I never think of it as a one night stand,” said Kelly DeGrave, an attorney who has officiated more than 20 weddings in the District.
“But when I think of the wedding as a two-year commitment, I don’t see it as being an appropriate term anymore.”
The industry has embraced the term, and it has gained popularity among some of its core clients.
But other people have used the term more casually, and some even say they’re ashamed to use it.
“My wife is very well-respected in the business, and she knows that I don’ want to be in the wedding business when I get married, and so I never use it,” said Sarah Niedringhaus, who works as an attorney and wedding coordinator.
“I have two kids and I have to be able to have my kids’ wedding, and to be married to someone who is not a great role model for my kids.
It’s a bit of a shame.”
In some ways, it’s become a term of derision.
“It’s kind of like, what are you doing?
It’s like, are you a ‘weddler’ now?” said Melissa Roper, a certified private investigator who specializes in weddings and corporate retreats.
“That’s what it comes down to.
There’s no one out there who has a problem with that term.
It seems like it has become an excuse to say, ‘No one wants to be called a ‘wife’ anymore.'”
Some women, like Sarah Roper who works for a private investigator agency, said they prefer to be referred to as “spouses.”
“I don’t want to call myself a wife because I think that’s a negative term,” she said.
“It just doesn’t fit my life, it doesn’t make me feel like a real person.
It just makes me feel a little bit uncomfortable.”
The D.J.C.’s Wedding RevolutionIn the last decade, the D.D.C.-area has experienced a boom in wedding tourism.
There are now more than 100,000 weddings taking place every year, and according to the D-List of wedding industry sites, there are more than 600,000 attendees per year.
The D.P.C., in fact, recently launched its own website that tracks wedding trends and events, and has a wedding destination guide for those seeking to book their wedding.
But some are questioning whether the term has become too overused.
“You’re not seeing any wedding industry people who are actually wedding planning,” said Kristina Smith, an associate professor of sociology at the University of Maryland who specializes on wedding culture.
“So people are beginning to question, ‘Why am I talking about this now?'”
She also noted that it can be hard to pinpoint exactly what people are referring to when they say they are “wearing a wedding dress.”
“The word wedding doesn’t really have that specific meaning,” Smith said.
“Weddings are all about the people who you’re celebrating with, and you’re going to be looking at these different people, so there’s no single, clear definition of what’s wedding.”
But if you’re not married yet, you may not even know the difference.
Smith said that a few years ago, she took a class on wedding etiquette.
“One of the people in the class was wearing a dress,” Smith recalled.
“And I said, ‘You’re wearing a wedding gown.’
And she was like, ‘Yes, you’re!’
So I had to be a little more careful.”
But as you get older, you start to recognize that what’s the definition of wedding?
You can get married at a party, or you can get a wedding with family and friends, but there’s nothing that’s exactly what you’re looking for.
“And that’s where it’s really getting lost in the discussion,” Smith added.
The D-list of wedding websites is a good place to start.
