Cyber Brides

One man, one woman (or choose the gender match of your choice), a ring and a kiss: It all seems so simple, and yet it isn't. These days, when you commit to marriage, you commit to weeks of intensive planning for a blowout that ostensibly happens only once in your life. Naturally, someone had to come up with a way for you to do all of that by watching TV or getting on the Internet. Your Wedding TV, a service that began in Orlando five years ago and migrated west, offers both alternatives.

Online, you can access more than 800 Colorado vendors, from florists to caterers, or take video tours of wedding venues; on the tube, you can tune in Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. to KWHD-TV/53 for a half-hour show featuring presentations and Q&A sessions with wedding experts (the shows are also available online). And the third alternative? Attend a live taping tonight from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the Crystal Rose, 9755 East Hampden Avenue, where you can be one of the folks asking the questions on camera. Admission is free, but reservations are required; go to for registration and information.
Wed., Sept. 12, 6:30-9 p.m.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
