    I couldn't get past "flashy sock guy." I thought my blood sugar was going to spike and send me into shock.

    Absolutely horrid.

    Dear god, I can't stand hipsters (Mostly because they destroyed my birthplace's reputation: Brooklyn, we used to be cultured and crap and now we're known as the place with Artisan Mayo shops :| ).  The stereotypes are strong in this one.  :D

    Edit: 15 pieces of music in their ceremony? Wtf poor guests. 

    Edit #2: A graph of guests professions? Damn these two piss me off.

    Uh-oh, we should cut some of our music. We only have five in the ceremony itself but five in the prelude and two in the postlude.

    Ok I just made it to their ceremony. . .JFC.

    The next time anyone on here dares whine about how long Catholic wedding masses are I'm going to link them this article and tell them to GTFOver it.

    ETA:  Oh this type of article seems to be a thing:  http://postgradproblems.com/a-breakdown-of-the-most-insufferable-marriage-announcement-ive-ever-read/

    I think we need to invite Wil to join the coven.

    ETA 2: The commenters found the wedding pictures! http://mobile.nytimes.com/slideshow/2016/06/19/fashion/weddings/a-day-filled-with-more-than-a-few-of-their-favorite-things/s/19VOWS-slide-PC5C.html?_r=0&referer=http://postgradproblems.com/this-hipster-marriage-announcement-from-the-new-york-times-is-the-most-insufferable-yet/

    Haha I guess in my head I imagine each piece is about 3-4min. An hour for music plus the speaking parts. Oh lord. (Then again I've never been to a wedding in my adult life so I don't know but it seems long)

    Also I skipped some of the article and just went back to it. He freaking sings opera randomly too while approaching people? Jesus H Christ

    Insufferable. That's all I could think of reading this. They must be the most insufferable people to be around. 

    I I kept thinking it couldn't get worse and then I'd read a little farther and it would!

    Man I can't tell you the last time I've wanted to punch a stranger in the throat so badly. Do these stories always refer to the couple by their last names because in my head it was by his request which makes me hate him even more. 

    However, he's also much cleaner than I anticipated in his photo and has a striking resemblance to McLovin. That's what you get for being a pretentious douchebag.

    "Mr. Peters described the music as: “Joyful, rich, lush. Lush like a forest, not like an alcoholic.”"

    Omg I am DYING. This was awful. My day can only get better.

    ETA: looked through the pics, the guy, Nathaniel? looks a lot like a roommate I once had.  He was completely insufferable, too.  In all of the same ways.

    Bravo, Jon Petkun.  You just know he rolled his eyes as he said that.

    ETA:  have I mentioned that "curated" is my current least-favorite word?  Because it is.  It SO is.

  • You know, hipsters can hipster all they want.  You be you.  I don't really care.

    BUT to put all this in a wedding announcement?  What the heck?  NO ONE cares this much about your stupid eccentric lifestyle to want to read about it in the newspaper.  NO ONE.  

    If you want to sing show tunes randomly while baking biscuits in your crazy socks, GO FOR IT.  But to be so pompous as to gush about it all in a newspaper?  You've got to be kidding me.

    To be fair, Most of the NYT wedding announcements I have read are totally obnoxious. . . and the author of the article I linked takes on a few additional ones.

    What annoys me about people who are this Hipster is that it's completely an act that they work very hard to maintain at all times.  They aren't genuinely this douchey, which is to say that they don't come by this level of douchery naturally- these are personas they are cultivating 24/7.

    It reminds me of the douchery here: http://www.vox.com/2015/9/9/9275611/victorian-era-life

    They eschew all modern shit and yet she fucking blogs about how they eschew all modern shit.  Yeah, ok.

    When she visited his house, she generally arrived with an armful of baguettes and pastries, leftovers from the bakery where she worked. “I started referring to her as our ‘friend with breadifits,’” he said.

    There are punchable paragraphs and then there’s the paragraph that just burned holes in your eyes. “Friends with breadifits” is the line they used at every Zooey Deschanel-esque dinner party they ever attended in an effort to make people think they were the cutest couple ever.


    Jeez Louise! 

    Zooey is someone I also want to punch repeatedly in the throat and vagina. The spelling of her name is one of many reasons.

  • “Wedding meadow” is the most cringeworthy phrase since Gwyneth Paltrow and the Coldplay dude called their divorce a “conscious uncoupling.”

    she's another one. 

    I imagine the groom to have a man bun hairstyle; it seems to be essential to the more douchier hipsters. In England we call these people wankers, tossers and in extreme cases the c word!

    My husband randomly turned to me the other day and said, "You know, one day, people are going to look back and have to explain how it was cool for a time for men to wear their hair in buns".

    I hadn't really thought about it.  But yeah... that's going to be one of those things that we look back at and can't believe.  I can hardly believe it now.

    In journalism, yes. Associated Press style is to only use last names on second reference. However, the Times has never followed this rule and always refers to people as Mr/Mrs/Ms last name on second reference.

    God bless the blogger for ripping apart wedding announcements. The New York single girl's sports pages!

    For what it's worth, the bride's dress is gorrrrrgeous. And way too trendy to be hipster. They're frauds!

    I looked at the photos.  Is it just me or does the groom look like a really attractive butch lady?

    Edit:  Lest someone take that the wrong way, I am a queer lady who has a thing somewhat androgynous queer ladies.  My comment wasn't meant to be "eeeww, dude looks like a lezzzbian."  I meant that I would totally hit on that guy if I saw him at a gay bar and then be disappointed.
