Worst Wedding Trend: “You’re Not Invited” Notifications

I thought wedding culture had hit rock bottom with sexy, “morning after” photo shoots. I was wrong. Things can get worse. According to “The Today Show,” “you’re not invited” alerts are the latest trend for couples who want to notify those who will not be on the guest list.

“Nine out of 10 times,… More »


Oh Deer God: Antlers As A Bridal Accessory

There have been some pretty “quirky” wedding trends recently. There’s the trend of making wedding photos look purposefully washed out, as though they were taken with a 1970’s toy camera. There’s the trend of using mason jars as wine glasses, candle holders or table centerpieces– really, anything that you can put something in will be… More »


This Disney-Obsessed Bride’s Family And Friends Must Really Like Her

When Jamie Blanke married her new husband Eric Chandler, they did it in style — Disney style.

But she didn’t stop at dyed red hair, a fish-netting veil and mermaid-style dress (all of… More »

Style 911: “Help Me Find Low-Heeled Wedding Shoes!”

“I need style advice! I’m getting married this summer and all the wedding shoes I’ve found are horrible. They’re mostly these weird cheap looking silver strappy things that are way overpriced. The only cute ones I can find have high heels, but I’m tall (5’10) and my fiancé’s not much taller and I don’t want to tower over him! More »


Congratulations, Jennifer And Ryan, You’re Terrible, Mazel Tov!

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… More »


Julie And Amelia Write Kate Winslet/Leo DiCaprio Fan Fiction

Oh come on, like you haven’t ever imagined your favorite celebrities secretly getting together and living happily ever after. It’s totally not weird that Amelia and I imagined an alternate reality where Kate Winslet and her “Titanic” costar Leo DiCaprio finally get together. Is it? Okay, maybe it is. But when we found out that… More »

Hitched: What You Shouldn’t Assume About People Planning Weddings

Deciding to get married — or to get engaged, or to generally not ever split up with your partner and make this preference publicly known — is an exciting and big life decision. It’s also, like a lot of life decisions (see also: parenting, graduate school, switching to hard liquor), one that your friends, family… More »


Hitched: Don’t Have Sex On Your Wedding Night

I remember climbing into Patrick’s pick-up truck in a fog of glittering sparklers. I remember noting that there was a giant penis shoe-polished on to the passenger side window. I remember taking an Instagram of us driving the few blocks back to our hotel. I remember being very excited about getting my shoes off.

Hitched: Do What You Want On Your Wedding Day

I consumed almost no wedding-related media in the eight or so months between when Patrick and I got drunk at the lake and decided to get engaged and when we actually tied the knot on April 21, 2012. I came to like Offbeat Bride and its attendant forums and creative user group, though I was… More »


A Wedding Portrait, Long Overdue

This is Wu Conghan and Wu Sognshi. They were married in 1924 in Nanchong, Sichuan province, China, but there were no photographers on their big day, and so the couple never had wedding photos taken. Well, 88 years later, the pair finally decided to remedy the situation and posed for the pictures they never got… More »


Hitched: Reflections On The First Six Months Of Marriage

On Sunday, Patrick and I celebrated our six-month wedding anniversary by watching nearly seven hours of what Netflix claims are “Halloween favorites” and eating a delicious homemade caprese salad, as Patrick decided that six months is the “caprese anniversary.” No doubt he has some culinary deliciousness planned in six more months.

How has… More »


Justin Timberlake And Jessica Biel Get Married, World Emits Collective Sigh Of Boredom

So, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel got married today, and they are both really pretty and talented (okay, he’s really talented, and she’s really pretty). But you know what? We can’t get a boner up for this. They might just be the most dull celeb couple ever. Timberlake called his lady “a really, really, really… More »


Hitched: Our Officiant Got Ordained Online

The few times I ever imagined my future wedding as I grew up in suburban north Texas, I imagined it taking place in the church I was raised in, the altar strewn with pretty flowers and the minister who baptized as a child me officiating. This vague idea of what my wedding might be like… More »


Hitched: Bridesmaids, What Are They Good For?

Minutes before I walked down the aisle, one of my persons-of-distinction, Trenton, pulled a bunch of multi-colored plastic Tiki goblets from a sack, busted open a bottle of cheap champagne from a cooler, and measured out five healthy pours for the five of us in the little dressing room. Most of my pre-wedding moments are… More »


Man Fakes Plane Crash In Elaborate Marriage Proposal

What is UP with dudes these days? First there was Alexey Bykov, the guy who pretended to die in a car crash in order to make his girlfriend realize how she can’t live without him (really, really). Now there comes the story of Ryan Thompson, a guy who pretended that the small plane he was… More »


Is This The Most Annoying Bride In The World?

First off, apologies for the crap quality of this video: the original was taken down, but thankfully (?) someone was able to make a second copy. This clip features a bride named Jacquelyn who is professing her love to her husband  Todd Evan Krieger. The video was presented to Todd — who she refers to… More »


Hitched: You’re Engaged! Now What?

Last Friday night, Patrick and I took a break from drinking beers and talking smack about Mitt Romney to befriend two couples who happened by our neighborhood bar.
