It’s Time To Cry: Bride’s Favorite Mascot Walks Her Down The Aisle After She Loses Her Father

Bride And Mascot
So Sweet

When Jennifer Sullivan unexpectedly lost her father to a heart attack six months before her wedding, she brought in her favorite mascot to walk her down the aisle. “I knew that I would be thinking about him the entire time,” Sullivan told WSVN News. “I knew I needed to do something really special to take my mind off of it and make the moment as lighthearted as possible.” Sullivan is a hardcore University of Miami fan, and a former employee of the school’s athletics department. Sebastian, the Miami Hurricanes mascot, was all too happy to step in on her special day, wearing a jersey with her late father’s nickname, Big Walt, on the back. It couldn’t have been a more fitting tribute. [CosmopolitanWSVN News]

Study: Wedding Traditions Are Changing Sloooowly

wedding cake topper 060414

Weddings may be full of age-old “rules,” but according to a new poll, views on strong-held nuptial traditions are slowly changing. A new Harris Poll surveyed 2,300 Americans this April to find out where they stand on old-school ideas about how heterosexual weddings are supposed to go down. Marriages might be changing, but weddings? Not so fast. Keep reading »

Here’s a twist on polygamy for you. A Saudi woman told her fiancé that she would marry him on the condition that he would also marry her two best friends, who happened to be her coworkers at the school she taught at. At first the man thought it was a joke, but the woman was dead serious and she refused to get hitched unless he agreed to the offer.

“He realized that she was not joking when she insisted on her demand … after mediation efforts by relatives, he agreed to marry the three school teachers,” reported the Saudi Arabic language daily Alyoum in a report from the western town of Taif. After the man wed the three friends, he rented them all their own apartments and the husband takes turns rotating between their places. According to the report, the arrangement has not spoiled their friendship and they still spend a lot of time at each other’s places hanging out and doing housework. No word on when their reality show, “My Three Brides,” is set to air. Keep reading »

Hitched: I Didn’t Try To Lose Weight For My Wedding

Andrea on the expectation that all brides-to-be want to lose weight. Read More »

People on the internet have been telling me I’m fat for at least a decade — since whenever the first full-body photograph of me appeared on a blog author page. I still remember one of the first times it happened. I was probably 22 years old, wearing a pink pencil skirt and cute black top, retro-style, in the photo.

“Just like I thought, she’s pear-shaped,” snarked one commenter, who apparently previously inferred from the quality of my writing that my body was not up to his high expectations, only to have it all confirmed by a photo.

I stood in front of the mirror in that same outfit, staring at my body from every angle, trying to figure out just how pear-shaped I was. Was it my thighs causing the problem? Had to be, right? I measured them. I calculated my BMI. I took more digital photos and compared them to the existing photo. I went through the size tags on all my clothes, trying to find the biggest one so I could prove to myself that I either was or wasn’t fat. Definitively.

"You two truly epitomize the word 'meant for each other.'

Jessica sent me this wedding video with the caveat that it would probably make me very angry. If I wasn’t on a shit ton of migraine meds at the moment, she’d probably be right. But instead, I just laughed at the bride’s dad invoking Martin Luther King Jr.; the fact that this groom is gonna have to listen to this woman’s unconscionable vocal fry for the rest of his life (or until divorce!); the groom awkwardly spinning the bride around like a swollen driedl; the “bride” director’s chair; the “West Side Story” passel of bridesmaids and groomsmen each of these a-holes included (she has, like, 25 bridesmaids); that the bride’s mom is basically trying to upstage her daughter in a mother-of-the-bride wedding dress; the histrionic soundtrack; and the fact that I had to have a snack in the middle of the video because it was so fricking long.

So yes, I’m so glad you two shitbirds found each other! There really is someone for everyone. [Blackbook] Keep reading »

One writer is sick of talking to women about weight. Read More »

Meet Jessica Schnaider, a woman profiled in The New York Times’ Style section this weekend. Jessica, 41, wanted to lose weight for her wedding, but instead of doing the typical thing that most brides-to-be do — hire a trainer, go on a diet — to make their perfect wedding dress a reality, she went for a more, oh, extreme solution.

Jessica decided to put herself on a feeding tube.
