Bridepacolypse : One man's journey into the belly of the $72 Billion wedding industry and what he learned on his way out
It's the major romantic event of your life, a bonding experience with your great love and a massive family reunion run as epic partying: your wedding. To create your own personal historic moment, you've splurged your savings and credit cards on food, DJ, church, dress and so much more. This is your moment to proclaim your love and buy a mountain of stuff in the process. Just beneath the surface of this epic wedding are dozens of hired guns you brought in to stage this great event -including me, your humble videographer- and we see more than you realize. We're here to help you have a great time with great memories, but here in these pages I confess what I've seen, what I've learned and what you should know before taking the plunge into the $72 billion per year American wedding industry. Your love life is part of a larger business, a massive commercial enterprise employing more Americans than the auto industry and you've been brainwashed since birth to feed it your life savings. This is a story full of drama, laughs and unlikely life lessons. It's about how we each write our own love story and how a wedding shapes the life of your marriage for many years to come. This is a story of how your wedding will change the world -this is Bridepacolypse, the tell-all book by wedding videographer-turned-professional-snitch David Blumenthal.
