Who Wants Their Wedding Theme To Be “Tacky”?

Whoa. I’ve heard of theme parties, but never theme weddings. Our girl Erin, who’s an Editor over at Shine, posted about the increasing popularity of theme weddings and equated the trend with the prevalence of bad tattoos. But one particular link within her story caught our eye: WedThemes.com. The site has literally hundreds of tickety-tackety wedding theme ideas, from “your favorite creatures such as dolphins, doves, butterflies and other insects, birds, and fish”, to “sorcery and enchantment await your guests when they witness the wedding magic of your wizard’s wedding.” So that got me thinking about what my dream theme wedding would be, were I the type of person who would invest time and money into such a thing. Catherine said, “I would totally do a ’30s or ’40s theme wedding — not a flapper wedding, like from the ’20s, but something very retro. Or, because I have Scottish-blood, maybe I would do a Scottish wedding and wear my family tartan as my wedding dress. Can I do that? I don’t think that white is really a good color for me.” As for me, I think I would do something extraordinarily over the top, like a Marie Antoinette-themed wedding, with powdered wigs and bustles and little mini cakes.

The Daily NOTness: Adam Duritz Of The Counting Crows

We loved “Mr. Jones” when we were in 8th grade too, but you know what? We woke up one day and realized that aside from that song, the Counting Crows totally blew and Adam Duritz, their lead singer, was grody. Especially when you consider how many hot, awesome babes he dated — Courtney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Mandy Friggin’ Moore. Now the dude has been blathering on and on to the laddie mags about how, despite being “a ladies man”, he’s battled depression. Boo-hoo. We’re depressed you’re still famous. Keep reading »

Huge thanks to the chicks over at Shine for telling us about the greatest website we never heard of, Bookmooch, which allows you to swap paperbacks with other users. Great for people who hate clutter or have a small living space, really want to read Eat, Pray, Love but don’t want to buy it, and care about the environment and don’t want to waste paper.

90210 Spin-Off Writers Totally Read The Frisky

…and/or my mind! Ahem, the pilot episode features “a young BH High student by the name of Hannah Zuckerman-Vasquez the host of the school’s Blaze news show.” So far, her appearance is brief, but I am so holding out for a recurring role. Also, the producers are also hoping to score Jennie Garth (Kelly Taylor, duh) to be in the cast. Honestly, what else is she doing? Sign the papers, Kel! [E!: Watch With Kristin] Keep reading »
