As a child, whenever I closed my eyes every wedding dress looked the same: a strapless ball gown, with a long white veil. (Maybe that was the dress my Barbie came with?)  In reality, wedding dresses (or jumpsuits) come in many shapes, sizes, and fabrics, the unique beauty of each being in the details.

I was lucky enough to be invited to David’s Bridal and Zac Posen’s fall previews and I have to say the dresses were stunning. As a married woman, I found myself pining to get married all over again just because of the all the potential fashion moments! Then Katie kicked me in the shin and told me to leave some wedding dresses for the single ladies.

Unfortunately many of our favorites won’t be available until Fall 2014, but here are some examples of our favorite dress trends.

Tis the season for the awkward bridal shower! We have no idea why they are always so uncomfortable, yet every bride (or her pushy mother) insists on doing one. Oh well, the universe is filled with secrets. Will the maid of honor drop a cupcake into her cleavage? Will a game of “Two Lies, One Truth” tell everyone more than you ever wanted to know about Aunt Beth and Uncle Randy’s sex life? You can bet that you’ll be squirming with discomfort even as you plaster a smile on your face and pretend you are thrilled that the bride now owns a set of muffin tins. Oh, honey, we’ve all been there. Here are 17 uncomfortable moments from every bridal shower we’ve ever been to:

Frisky Rant: Want To “Save Marriage”? Stop Telling Women What To Do

marriage-conservative

Conservatives’ stance on marriage hasn’t ever much suited me. The so-called value they profess the loudest is “Preserving And Protecting Traditional Marriage” — it sat at number one atop the 2012 GOP platform — and is of course coded language for marriage between a man and a woman.

Their PR strategy for pushing traditional marriage is pretty firmly focused on accusing LGBTQ couples of not being “natural.” Obviously this boner for “saving marriage” is just a cover for bigotry towards LGTBQ folks. But having recently gotten married — to a man — I’m noticing more and more how conservatives meddle in heterosexual marriage, too.

Ladies, you haven’t won the game just because you have a ring on your finger!  You are also probably doing something wrong right this minute!
