Some women have ‘the bride gene’ they just want to be brides. They can’t wait for that special day when they drop 35k on a single event. They spend years dreaming about their perfect dress, the food, the venue etc. They pick out bridesmaids gifts and plan their something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue. But now there is a new trend in bridal fashion and it’s very deer. No, I didn’t misspell that…it’s deer antlers.
For $325.00 you can put a “bridal mini hat” made by Fine & Fleurie on your head as you walk up the aisle. But it’s not any “mini hat” it’s antlers. They’re freaking antlers. I love minis anything teacup sized will send me into squeals so I’m pretty upset that they’re using people’s love of mini’s to lure them into antlers.
Fine & Fleurie say, “this is a great piece for a fearless, whimsical bride.” Huh? Fearless I get…but whimsical? What is whimsical about strapping antlers on your head? I’m not knocking crazy fashion, I’m a grown woman that wears an owl snow hat…I get it sometimes you just feel like being an animal but antlers? On your wedding day?
Maybe I’m not the best source for this. Weddings have always been a source of confusion for me. If I’m going to go in debt I’m not going in debt over a wedding—a car, a house, a month in Europe yes, but not a wedding. I don’t understand why this one day matters so much and to that point I’d like to submit that women that have Pinterest boards planning their wedding—when they are not engaged should be quarantined.
In researching outlandish wedding ideas I headed to Pinterest which is the Mecca of weddings and food. I was browsing through some friend’s boards, some friends of friends, and was amazed at how many of these people are planning lavish weddings when they don’t have a proposal. Some have boyfriends—which shocks me that this doesn’t send a man running—but most are single.
Wait, I think I understand it…the same women that plan a wedding without a proposal are the “whimsical” types that pay $325 bucks to stick antlers on their head and call it fashion.
I was discussing this article with my friend Bunny and she put it best. She asked what one had to with the other and I said that I was trying to illustrate that there are varying degrees of crazy but crazy is crazy. To which she replied, “No way. There are a million different shades of crazy. I’m crazy, but in a much different way than you are crazy, and we are both crazy in different ways than Martha Stewart -now that bitch is crazy.”
So the point is, ladies, embrace your crazy. If you want to plan a wedding without a proposal, put antlers on your head, or go to jail for insider training and come out wearing a poncho knitted by your cell mate– do you.
The ads, trailers and radio spots may look awful, but the reviews so far for the new Judd Apatow/Kristin Wiig movie, Bridesmaids, suggest it might finally break from the tradition of terrible “weddings make ladies crazy” movies. Nor is it necessarily just “The Hangover for Ladies” as Filmdrunk declared it a couple of weeks ago. According to Sign On San Diego reviewer Christy Lemire:
“Bridesmaids” takes the typically clichéd wedding movie genre and completely upends it and reinvents it into something surprisingly daring and alive.
Which sounds really promising — especially if you’re tired of typical sad-lady rom-coms My Best Friend’s Wedding or Something Borrowed or 27 Dresses or …
What’s got me a little worked up is that Kate Middleton, who graduated from college with honors and had fairly extensive career options in both the fashion industry and the field of photography, has basically been relegated to a breeder.
Yup, talk has turned from her wedding dress to her ovaries before she’s even been a wife for a week.
Looking at these two beautiful people, I have to recommend that they have a baby as soon as possible. Why? Well, beyond passing on those top-tier genes, the reality is that Kate is 29 and Will is 28, and this is the ideal time to have a baby – especially if they are planning on having more than one child.
While starting a family right away may seem like a daunting prospect for a newlywed couple – even a pair who has been dating for years, as Kate and Will have – here’s the medical lowdown on the matter:
I don’t fully understand all of the excitement over the Royal Wedding. Granted, I wasn’t even born when Charles and Diana got married, so maybe this really is a big deal. But apparently in England people are having SuperBowl-style parties at each others’ houses to watch the event — hopefully with the British version of seven-layer dip and beer helmets. In any event, in the lead-up to the wedding, no detail has been left untouched by the media, but perhaps the most scrutiny has been applied to two topics in particular: the dress and Kate Middleton’s ever-slimming form.
According to Jezebel, Kate Middleton may have gone with some little-known British designer, not unlike Diana back in the day — though one does hope there will be a considerably shorter train and some puff-free shoulders.
But it’s the discussion of Middleton’s body that seems the …
