Are you ready?! Here is the back story from our fabulous designer Gloria Wong of Gloria Wong Design:

I would like to see how our TAPD Scholarship applicants develop a design concept for opposites. I'm always getting couples with different tastes and it's up to me to meld the two together. I thought of the show Green Acres from the 1960s. Here's the premise of the show: Successful New York lawyer Oliver Wendell Douglas gives up the rat race to fulfill his dream: living the life of the traditional American farmer. Fighting the move to rural life is his glamorous, boa-wearing, city-loving wife, Lisa. Our spin on this is that a farm-owner proposes to his glamorous socialite girlfriend. They are complete opposites. He likes the simple rural country life. She likes the lavish uptown city life. They wish to blend their personalities and styles for their wedding. How do you meld these two lifestyles into a tasteful event?'

Good luck!

I just want to clarify, the opposites concept has to incorporate Green Acres, or is it any opposites wedding concept?

appears that the two opposites took character from the idea of the green acres show...we are to use...her spin.."farm owner and socialite"
