WaPo | Solo-ish | Analysis | Want to make your wedding more meaningful? We hosted a reception at a soup kitchen.

By Eli Reiter I’ve never been happier to be kicked out of my seat — and it happened at my brother’s wedding. It’s an age-old story that weddings cause many happy couples to lose sight of what matters. A recent viral story featured a bride who asked her guests to contribute $1,500 each to her $45,000 destination wedding in Aruba, according to reports. Only eight friends came through, she said in her Facebook status. The groom’s parents at one point rescinded their pledge of $3,000, so she started a GoFundMe campaign that raised only $250. She became “livid” when her then-boyfriend suggested that, in light of these failed attempts, they instead get a quickie wedding in Sin City. They are no longer a couple.
