The New York Times ran an amusing article today "With This CD I Thee Wed" about the rampant popularity of giving out a mix cd of a couple's song favorites as a wedding favor. One wedding coordinator quoted in the article estimated that a full 75% of her clients now give out CD favors. There were pros and cons on both sides regarding whether or not it was a good gift idea, though I must confess I remain on the con side. I've yet to be tempted to replay any cd's that I've ever received as a wedding favor and don't imagine I'll be dusting them off any time soon.
I was pretty darn happy, however, to see this fun, wedding related story on the front of the NYT Styles section!
