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…

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 wa…

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…

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 ha…

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…

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…

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…

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 wa…

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…

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. They needed a place to sit; we offered to share our table. And as many newly engaged couples are, all four of them were a little bit…

Weird Wedding Trend: “Morning After” Wedding Shots

Was your wedding not sexy enough? Did your nuptials not properly convey how utterly hot and sensual your relationship really is? Then maybe you should invest in some “morning after” wedding photography. Taken hours or days after a couple gets married, this new exhibitionist trend is aimed at showing how spicy new marriage can be.

First Look: Chad Kroeger & Avril Lavigne’s Official Wedding Photo!

Okay, not really, but this is how we imagine the newly engaged couple — ChAvril LaKroeger, as we’re calling them — will dress for the big day. Him in a custom Justin Timberlake-inspired Canadian Tuxedo, and her in full Ed Hardy regalia. It’s a match made in tacky!

A Death-Defying Graffiti Proposal Comes True

Drew met Chelsea when his band, Drew and the Medicinal Pen, came through Perth, Australia. Chelsea wasn’t supposed to be working that night, and she had just broken up with a long-term boyfriend that day, but the connection between the two was clear. After years of writing letters and swapping tapes, Chelsea moved to Brookly…

10 Alternative Engagement Rings For The Unconventional Bride

Engagement rings are so boring. They’re pretty, sure, and sparkly too, and exorbitantly expensive, and every girl dreams of one from Tiffany, and it has three diamonds in it, and this is the shape of the diamond, and blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Don’t you want this thing you have to wear o…

Wedding Dress Porn: 15 Amazing & Absurdly Expensive Wedding Gowns

It’s wedding season, and whatever. While everyone else is off pledging eternal devotion, or crying whilst watching others do so, I embrace the opportunity to (pointlessly) browse the prettiest, most ornate wedding dresses money can buy, waxing quixotic for the day a Pinault puts a ring on my finger — or even just knocks me…

Singing Bride Is Clearly Onto Something

Ladies, maybe we’re all doing something wrong. I say that because after watching this video of this obviously batcrackers woman walking down the aisle while singing Christina Aguilera’s “The Right Man,” I wonder if we are simply not acting crazy enough. I mean, this woman got married, y’all. She found a man who loves her.
