In Case You Missed It, Literally Everyone Got Married This Weekend

Chances are, you or someone you know went to a wedding over Memorial Day weekend.

Look, everyone knows that spring and summer are the most popular times of the year to get married.

Nice weather and an abundance of long weekends are just two reasons why.

Nice weather and an abundance of long weekends are just two reasons why.

Normally, the third weekend June is the supreme wedding weekend…but then, suddenly, out of no where, Memorial Day weekend 2017 went and snatched the crown???

I have zero statistical proof for this hypothesis, but I do have several undeniable pieces of evidence and an insatiable desire to be right (who doesn't?), so allow me to explain.

FXX

Exhibit A: Multiple celebrities picked this fine weekend to tie the knot. There's Emmy Rossum and Sam Esmail.

And, of course, there's Miranda Kerr and Evan Spiegel.

Exhibit B: Literally every time I went on Facebook or Instagram this weekend, there was an onslaught of wedding photos.

Like, if my friend/long-lost acquaintance/family member/former dog walker wasn't the one getting married, they were most certainly a guest at a wedding.

And, naturally, the wedding photos came with an onslaught of hashtags, which are the actual best thing to happen to modern-day weddings. Not only is it highly entertaining to see how people figured out how to mash their names and/or wedding date and/or place they met into one, it's the perfect way to do a thorough stalk. Long live the hashtag, I say!

Now, as an insecure millennial who can only be sure of my convictions if the internet affirms them, I turned to Twitter to see if anyone else had any thoughts on this matter. Turns out, I am not alone!

Not only do I have company, I have lots of it.

  1. Blah blah blah, I know it all makes sense, holiday weekends are nothing new, I get it. But this weekend really took the cake. Do you agree?

    You got paid to write this unscientific study in which you called yourself an insecure millennial who always needs to be right? GTFO.
