Honestly, I'd be in the latter category, and I'd probably distance myself from any friend who put on a big production to announce their engagement... I'd be terrified that they're going to become couplezilla over the whole wedding-planning process, wanting to have the biggest and best "OR ELSE!!"
T Flynn, “Re: Something to consider:”
In that any gathering or ceremony has a focal point and an audience, that may be, but the idea of comparing a wedding to a pageant -- implying that OF COURSE a wedding should be some overblown, foo foo, couplezilla affair -- is a serious miscommunication.
