What To Wear To Officiate A Wedding

When my friends Rachel and Scott were planning their wedding, they weren’t sure who should perform the ceremony. They’re not religious, and the whole production was taking place in her parents’ backyard. One day, she jokingly said, “Hey Winona, maybe you should do it.” Then we stopped laughing, I got ordained online, and the rest is history. As more and more couples tap their friends and family members to officiate their weddings, we amateur reverends have to figure out what to wear. The minute Rachel ruled out the option of a Gandalf robe, I started a frantic search, and didn’t settle on my outfit — a simple black blouse and a patterned A-line skirt — until the day before the ceremony.Obviously the details of your ensemble will depend on the formality of the wedding and the vision of the bride and groom (certain couples might mandate a Gandalf robe), but remember: the perfect officiating outfit will be comfortable, credible, and consistent with the tone of the ceremony.

Is West Lee The New Emily Maynard? And Is “The Bachelor” Cashing In On Personal Tragedies?

The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” have long been known for casting types—the workaholic, the basketcase, the party heartier. But it looks like after last season, when Emily Maynard became a fan favorite because of the resilience she showed in talking about her fiance who died in a plane crash years before the show, it appears the franchise has a new type—the tragedian. For the second season in a row, the producers have cast a contestant with something deeper than a traumatizing breakup in their past—they’ve lost spouses in tragic accidents.

This season, that contestant is West Lee, who is currently vying for the love of Ashley Hebert. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “What’s The REAL Reason He Doesn’t Want To Date Me?”

A week ago I met a really nice guy and we hit it off right away. We both are newly single and expressed to one another that we were just looking for someone to go out and spend time with. We went on our first official date a couple of days ago and it went very well. I was pretty certain that we’d see each other again because at certain moments during the date he would make references to future dates. Well, a few hours after the date he texted me saying that while he had a nice time with me and liked me he wasn’t ready for any kind of commitment and wanted to keep his options open. He also said that he felt like if we continued to see one another we’d likely end up in a serious relationship, and that that’s not what he wants right now. I know the answer here should be obvious to me, but it just really sucks! I have never connected this soon with someone before and we had a great first date and I could tell he was into me, but now suddenly I’m rejected because he likes me too much? He said he didn’t want to hurt me and that I deserve a lot more than he can give me right now. Do you think he was he being genuine and really looking out for me? Or was this just his way of saying he’s not into me without actually saying it? — Bummed After First Date
