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 have newlyweds Mindy and John (along with their maid of honor and best man) facing down a group of AT-ATs making their way across Lake Michigan, courtesy of ridiculously talented photo editor Steven Kowalski. As I’ve always suspected, a lightsaber is the perfect wedding day accessory. [When Geeks Wed via Neatorama]
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 want a lot of freedom — and the option of wearing sandals — if you’re getting married in the sand. But is it too casual?

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 this photo. Mainly, how is it possible for a 14th century French castle to look exactly like the “hidden forest” background of my 5th grade school picture? Suspicious… [People]
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. (Thanks to Senator Wendy Davis and the rest of the “feminist army,” they failed.) So this week, I’m rerunning one of Andrea’s first Hitched columns, originally published on November 2, 2011.
Wedding dress shopping. Here’s what happens to me: I walk into a bridal salon and tell the nice maternal saleswoman that I want a tea-length gown with no flowery accents. I am ushered into a dressing room where I am told that they have one tea length gown, it is covered in flowers, and did I want to try on, say, this $1,500 satin gown with a 14-foot train? For funsies? Repeat nine times. Nine. Nine.
“This is your one chance to be a princess!” one saleswoman told me. When I explained to her that my “princess” vision actually, like, seriously really did include a tea-length dress and she was just going to have to see if she could manage to wrap her mind around that, this total stranger looked at me like I had just shot her kitten point-blank in the face in the middle of the dress shop.
So, I went to the custom dressmaker. I told her what I wanted. She said she could totally do that, but she wouldn’t start the dress until next year, even though we’re getting married in April. Why?
“So you have time to get your weight where you want it.” Keep reading »
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 pole. I have a feeling that the bride hasn’t spoken to her since the big day. [via YouTube]
Update: It’s been brought to our attention that this video was made as part of Heineken’s Know The Signs campaign.
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 walked into the shot. “One of the tigers was sunbathing on the ledge when Karma shook her dress and caught its attention,” said Vicki Boulter, one of the couple’s photographers. “All of a sudden it came bounding over and right into the shot. He posed for a split second and walked away. Karma and Andrew didn’t realize the tiger had come so close. But they were delighted when they saw the photo.” [Express]
