Groom Accuses Bride Of Hiding Her Facial Hair With A Veil

An Arab ambassador to Dubai hastily tried to divorce his new bride after he lifted the niqab veil covering her face for the first time ever and saw his wifey was cross-eyed and sporting a beard.

Girl Talk: I’m Addicted To “Platinum Weddings”

I feel like I need to issue a preemptive apology to my mother, my boyfriend’s mother and my boyfriend’s grandmother: I won’t be a “fun” bride.

I will probably be more of a wet blanket, really. I won’t get excited about table settings or flower girl dresses. I won’t even care about the…

This Is What A Beautiful Bride Looks Like

I’m not even engaged and I frequently have thoughts like, “I have to tone my upper arms so they look skinny in my wedding dress!” How screwed up is that?!?! A blogger who actually is engaged and “sick and tired of seeing ads for ‘wedding weight loss,'” started up a blog where brides of all…

Bride Saves Family From House Fire While Still In Her Wedding Dress

Most of the time, we hear bad things about brides — they’re dressing their friends in unflattering polyester blends, or freaking out over a misplaced zinnia in a bouquet. But get ready for a bride who’s a real American hero. Last night, Georgette Clemons was leaving her wedding reception when she saw smoke coming from…

Keepin’ It Classy: Can I Back Out On Being A Bridesmaid?

This week, I received a letter from a woman who’s having commitment issues about her friend’s wedding. Here’s what she has to say about her cold feet: “I met up with my old college roommate to celebrate her engagement. Although I hadn’t seen her in years, when she asked me to be a bridesmaid, I…

Wife With A Life: The Unexpectedly Sucky Parts of Newlywed Life

The first year of marriage is the hardest, I’d been told many times by my friends. While I wasn’t sure if I was prepared for the uncertain road that lay ahead, I certainly felt like I’d gotten fair warning and couldn’t expect to be surprised by the challenges that would come once I entered marriage.

Supergirl Gets Divorce

Kids grow up so fast these days. By 3rd grade, I had definitely played pretend bride, but a girl in Yemen was forced to do it for reals. At the bold age of eight, her parents married her off to a man over four times her age. It’s all fun and games until someone get…
