The Delusional New York Times Vows Column To End All Delusional New York Times Vows Columns

The New York Times Vows column is truly one of a kind. Week after week, the meet-cute stories land all over the spectrum, from the truly romantic to the strangely political to, very frequently, the totally twee and bizarrely short-sighted. To wit: this week’s tale, titled “Found, A Soul Mate,” which regales the romance of…

14 Pieces Of Bizarre Crap People Buy For Their Wedding

It all started with wedding picks.

I was cruising a wedding decorations website looking for garlands and lanterns when I came across something called “wedding picks.” What are wedding picks, you ask? Unclear. Are they toothpicks that go in your pigs in a blanket at the reception? Doodads for your bridal bouquet? Who…

Wedding Photographers Are So Over Pinterest

Many modern brides can’t imagine planning a wedding without Pinterest. They can gleefully pin every detail of their romantic union, from quirky announcements to wedding hairstyles to retro appetizers to the engraved mason jar favors, but as Lexi Petronis recently mentioned over at Glamour‘s Save The Date blog, wedding photographers are not as excited about…

Every week, one couple is lucky enough to get prime real estate in the Vows section, the New York Times‘ wedding announcement page, where their romance is told in a long story, and friends and family contribute adorable anecdotes.

RIP Society: J.Crew Sells A $750 Sequin “Wedding Romper”

Most people feel less conflicted about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan than they do about buying anything, anything at J.Crew. The land of the $49.50 T-shirt is a land most of us can only afford to visit — if we can even control our rageface at their excruciatingly painful combination of cute clothes and…

Well, Dancing Down The Aisle To “Crazy Bitch” Is One Way To Get Married

That awkward moment when you stand up as the bride starts walking down the aisle, expecting a weepy wedding processional, and instead she bumps and grinds her way through “Crazy Bitch,” a Buckcherry song that was on the “National Lampoon’s Van Wilder” movie soundtrack.

Nope, Sorry, 80 Bridesmaids Is Too Many

Six bridesmaids seems like a lot. Eight? Ten? Twelve? Now you’re really pushing it. But no bride in the history of pushing it has pushed it quite like Katie Dalby, 26, of the UK, who married with 80 bridesmaids by her side. Eighty. Eight-zero. …

Kadie Walsh and Dake Schmidt are both super outdoorsy people who make their living as fishing guides in Alaska.

Bachelorette Party Planning Really Does Bring Out The Worst In Women

I don’t know what it is, but bachelorette parties have a knack for bringing out the very worst in women. Inevitably, we all have different viewpoints on the ritual (some of us are pumped to wear penis hats and some of us aren’t), we have various amounts we can and will spend to celebrate our…

The Force Is Strong With This “Star Wars” Wedding Photo

The Photoshopped wedding picture trend is showing no signs of slowing, and I, for one, am pretty happy about that. After seeing a wedding party being chased by a fearsome T-Rex and an engaged couple doing battle with a rogue zombie, it was only a matter of time before “Star Wars” entered the mix. Here we…

Would You Wear A Shirtdress Wedding Gown?

Designer Victor & Rolf just launched a rather novel new wedding line. The capsule collection is called, appropriately, Married, and includes a wedding shirt dress. But like, a formal wedding shirt dress. It actually doesn’t look as bad as it sounds — and might be really great for something like a summer beach wedding. After all, you…

Here’s Avril Lavigne’s Black Wedding Dress In All Its Goth Glory

Finally, we have a full-length photo of Avril’s black wedding dress! In our poll yesterday, a slight majority of Frisky readers expressed distaste for the black wedding dress trend.  I’m totally into the color (or lack thereof) of Avril’s dress and hubby Chad Kroeger’s coordinating black tux, but I have some other concerns about thi…

Hitched: The Wedding Dress Body Project

Andrea is taking a much needed week off from her Hitched column this week, after spending the last few days reporting live from the Texas State Legislature as they attempted to rid the state of nearly all its clinics that provide abortions.

Watch This Boozy Beauty Ruin A Bride’s Wedding!

You would think an open bar at a wedding would be the perfect way to liven up the crowd and get everyone’s dancing shoes movin’, but not for this unfortunate bride. One of her guests was bathing in booze. In this video, a red-dressed beauty gets bombed and a bit too comfortable with her makeshift…

The Ultimate Feline Photobomb

Lest you think this couple were married by a wild tiger who’d somehow gotten ordained online, this photobombing feline is safely behind glass. Groom Andrew Madgwick and his bride Karma posed for wedding photos at the Paigton Zoo in Devon, England, and happened to snap a photo the very second the zoo’s Sumatran tiger Banda…

Hitched: I’m So Glad I Didn’t Have An “Unplugged” Wedding

It’s in The New York Times, so I guess “unplugged” weddings are a thing, at least among the handsome and affluent people who see themselves in the Paper of Record’s style section.

In a column called “This Life” (imagine saying it the way you’d say “This guy! Can you believe this guy!?” and…
