Brides to Obama: ‘Hell No!’

by on July 17, 2012

Obama’s marriage-themed fundraising scheme has been met with little enthusiasm from couples and event planners, according to the New York Post. Announced on June 22nd, the initiative asks couples to request campaign donations from their guests instead of gifts. The Obama campaign has touted the donations as “a gift that we can all appreciate—and goes a lot further than a gravy bowl,” but their target audience isn’t buying. The Post reports wedding pros have found the ploy “tasteless and divisive”:

“This is absurd. Republican or Democrat, you shouldn’t bring politics into a wedding,” said Kristin Koch, a senior editor with “We found that nearly everyone found this to be a bad idea.”

Comments on Koch’s website have called Obama’s scheme “‘gross!’ and ‘tacky’—with one writing ‘Hell no!’”
