Fashiona on Atlanta's 40 $40 weddings in 40 hours

Over  a rare leisurely breakfast, Fashiona was watching CNN and the story 40-40-40 caught her attention. Veteran wedding planner Sylvia Wyfer Clark  was describing her concept of 40,$40 per person weddings  in 40 hours at the rate of one per hour to help cash strapped couples and to raise funds for Atlanta's homeless.

What was included in the $40 per person fee? 

  • A choice of  a religious or civil ceremony

  • Bouquet

  • Cake

  • Reception

CNN's Heidi Collins  asked (that Fashiona was thinking)...where there any Bridezillas?  Ms. Clark actually said there was one...seriously at $80 a wedding...umm no hissy fits should have been allowed.  In her place, Fashiona would have sent the unruly bride... straight to the Justice of the Peace.

All jokes aside, Fashiona applauds Sylvia's ingenious idea of "marrying"  weddings and fundraising together and would love to volunteer at next year's event.

Founded in 1986, the Atlanta Children's Shelter provides free, quality day care, emotional support, an educational curriculum for homeless children, and focused social services for their families.
