WTF

Okay so probably about 2/3rds of the posts could be titled simply “WTF” but seriously, WhyTF did I go on hiatus when I had this in my queue? It’s from etsy and IDK, maybe the seller personalizes them and the couple…really looks exactly like that but if so, damn, use some artistic license or something. People in the 1700s all had gingivitis but that doesn’t mean that movies set in that period show that.

Great for the Salvador Dali-themed weddings popular with today’s hipsters. These melting wedding cake “magnetic memo holders*” complement melting cats / flaming daffodil centerpieces and represent the irony of a fragile, perishable thing being held up as a symbol for a lifetime commitment.


*(isn’t a magnetic memo holder just a…magnet? I think they went a little overboard with the goofy name because otherwise this is a great product.)

(via » How Much Did Edward and Bella’s Wedding Cost? Centives)
Hey hopefully I will have time to post a little more! So check out this Centives rundown of the cost of Edward and Bella’s wedding from the new Twilight movie. Obviously there was some guesstimating involved, but they figured that, when you combine the venue (free, since it’s at the Cullen estate), the flowers (a buttload), lights, chair covers, rings (also free since they were from the family), and dress, you come up to about $38,000. Which isn’t TOO far off the average American wedding figure of $27,000.
Except that they don’t take into account two very huge costs: reception decor, and reception food! Though to be fair, if every guest is a vampire I guess you don’t need food since they don’t eat? So that might actually make sense. And if they’re not eating they don’t need tables, chairs, etc, technically.
That, AND her wedding had about 50 guests, whereas the average American wedding is 100-120 guests, making the cost per person way higher than an average wedding.
I’ve worked in the wedding/party industry so I do know a lot of the costs associated with weddings. And any wedding you see in movies or on TV is usually *way* more expensive than the already-high cost of a typical, average wedding. Which makes sense…hello, it’s fantasy! But just like how everybody in Hollywood has perfect teeth and a personal trainer, it messes with our perception of what’s “normal”.

Adventures of 5-year-old me continued…
She then chopped the bottom half off this dress, claiming it “didn’t belong”.
It was an improvement, in the sense that trading a dumptruck full of nuclear waste for a grain silo full of used toiletpaper is an improvement…

Hot Pink Velour
I found this photo on flickr, so I have no idea where all this crazy crap came from. Who the heck is selling hot pink velour floor length tablecloths and matching chair covers (because your chair covers have to match your tablecloths, otherwise it’s taaaacky..), and who the heck is buying them?

Cake Wrecks: Swimming Upstream
Trying not to be a perv here, but this cake is not helping! Not only do they look like sperm, as cakewrecks points out…I can’t even figure out what the heck ELSE they could be! Tadpoles?

Roses with your face on them
Fresh flowers are great. Why screw around with them?  Why pay hundreds more just to get the roses with your name, or your  monogram, or your face on them? When the bride is walking down the aisle, nobody’s hardly going  to notice the bouquet, much less if all the roses have the wedding date  stamped on them.
