Times Weddings by the Numbers

Our friends at Gothamist have a yummy weekly feature called Times Weddings by the Numbers where they break out the statistical data from the sunday Weddings section of the NY Times into little, fun digestible bits.

For instance, this week, there was 1 bald groom featured, no brides featured wearing glasses and six (!) Yale graduates. If you watch the statistics week by week, its fun to keep track of the "typical" Times wedding. They *do* deserve some props for diversifying a bit, but having said that, their average wedding announcement is still pretty vanilla.

For a more in depth (READ: snarky) breakdown of the NY Times weekly wedding section, check out the highly entertaining blog Veiled Conceit.
