heres my take I have taken pictures all my life and i understand what the OP is saying as i see in other forums the posts from people who want to take people weddings. there is nothing wrong in this, but its clear from the post that these people have no idea what it takes to actually do a wedding and here they want to go out and take the pictures of someones special day.
It does take a lot of skill to do a wedding as photography is part art, science and creativity. if you look at the horror stories in the earlier posts its clear that the person behind the camera has no idea how to compose or compensate for the light conditions, basic photography skills. I did a course in photography when i was young that taught me the some skills i was lucky to be go for for a professional and then he let me do second shooting, while all this was building up my own knowledge and experience. After all this he let me do my own wedding but I was ready i had done my apprenticeship.
If people want to do this kind of work then i would say they should look for a job as a second shooter and get some experience before going out on there own, they will get something out of it and the brides day wont be ruined.
