There are some people who say ‘Jack and Jill’ parties or ‘Online Crowdfunding’ for weddings are tacky and for those people this potential trend will no doubt have them ready to explode.
Samantha Hartley is looking for sponsors for her wedding. Anything goes except she does “draw the line with any logos on my dress”. Her wedding is next November (2018) in Guelph and she’s all for having the MC mention sponsors several times throughout the evening. Another couple from Moose Jaw have already convinced businesses to take care of the wedding gown and gluten-free cake, they to say the dress if off-limits but admit that the tux is up for grabs!
So far they’ve managed to lock down approximately 20 sponsors. Some of those business going on record saying “it sounded kind of like sponsoring a ball team to me”
“Our mission has got to do with bringing community on board and the fact that nobody has to incur a $60,000 debt,” said one couple.
I guess ‘hard up for cash’ is all relative but.. Who needs a 60k wedding? I ask!
