PUBLIC OPINION > A 'Hunger Games'-Themed Wedding Is a Hit or Miss

Themed weddings can be loads of fun, or they can be a little on the strange side. A couple got married on "World of Warcraft" recently. That's on the strange side. In comparison, a "Hunger Games"-themed wedding sounds incredibly tame. Based on the suggestion from Green Wedding Shoes, the idea is simple: incorporate elements from the book into the wedding. No full-on costumes or far-out schemes, just some pine cone flowers, arrows, and symbols. We asked the public if it sounds like a good idea.
For a book-themed wedding, a split decision isn't bad. It helps that the theme is simple and cute, as opposed to, say, an "Avatar"-themed wedding, which would be awkward and... blue. One commenter wrote, "I think it is a fun idea as long as it doesn't take the focus away form the actual event and the couple." And that seemed to be the general consensus among supporters. Among detractors, the theme was something like, "Nerds!"
Teens Are the Top Supporters
There were plenty of marrying-age voters who were intrigued by the idea of a "Hunger Games"-themed wedding, but the biggest supporters were a bit too young. That might also be connected to the fact that unmarried voters were about 15% more interested than married voters.
Women Want It More
Evidently, "The Hunger Games" is more geared toward females. They were 24% more likely to go for the wedding. Then again, weddings in general tend to be more geared toward women, so that could be part of it. If there was a "Don't care" option, it might have attracted a significant portion of the male vote.
Progressives and Pine Cone Flowers
Obviously, a book-themed wedding doesn't scream conservatism, but we were a bit surprised to find that libertarians were even less likely to go for it, showing only 24% support. Christians, however, were only 10% behind atheists, so religion didn't seem to have nearly as much effect on the results.
