I love advertisements.

I know. It’s crazy, but what can I say? I am inspired by the creativity of other people. Let me clarify, though, that I love print advertisements. As in, the photo above. In the line of work I am in, I see them a lot, and they always prompt me to think about random, creative things. I get a lot of my ideas for my home from print advertisements.

Anyway. Exhibit #1 is above. I found it in a magazine this morning and enjoyed looking at it.

Next, I wanted to tell you about a wedding that completely caught my attention on my way to work. Perhaps it is indicative of the temperature of our marriages in this age–what think ye?

TAIPEI (Reuters Life!) – Chen Wei-yih has posed for a set of photos in a flowing white dress, enlisted a wedding planner and rented a banquet hall for a marriage celebration with 30 friends.

But there is no groom. Chen will marry herself.

Uninspired by the men she’s met but facing social pressure to get married, the 30-year-old Taipei office worker will hold the reception next month in honor of just one person.

“Age thirty is a prime period for me. My work and experience are in good shape, but I haven’t found a partner, so what can I do?” Chen said.

Finish the story here and feel free to leave a comment if you have an opinion–about marriage OR advertisements. I’m all ears.

Happy weekend!
