They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and we agree.
That's why we didn't take it personally when Glamour posted about how "cheesy" it is to have a Harry Potter themed wedding with "a Hogwarts Express train ride to the venue. A reception hall set up like the wizarding school with the four 'house' tables for guests. Seating cards set alongside a Sorting Hat"... and then linked to an image featuring some of these things — the same image we posted a few weeks earlier in a blog about two gorgeous Harry Potter-themed weddings we fell in love with. It's been one of our most popular features on the site.
That's not to say we didn't chuckle about Jezebel's follow-up post, "Glamour Says Your Harry Potter Wedding is Cheesy."
We love our Harry Potter weddings because let's face it, when you hear "Harry Potter-themed weddings," it conjures up all kinds of images, not all of which seem wedding appropriate. Turns out, they are beautiful and classy in their own right — with a mystical touch.
Oh, and for the record, we don't think it's very nice to call anyone's wedding tacky; it may not be your taste, but that doesn't make it cheesy.
