Classy? The lady doth protest too much, methinks.

Although I gotta say, for the last wedding I was in, I bought the bride a "Soon To Be Mrs. X" hoodie, and she freakin' loved it.

I am getting married in September and it is almost impossible to find wedding-related anything doesn't look like this crap.

You know what? Fuck all stupid wedding trappings. FUCK EM! Fuck the shirts that say "soon to be Mrs. Jerk" Fuck the M&Ms with the couple's names and little hearts on them at every table at the reception... Fuck the cakes that OMG match the bride's dress! Fuck the entire fucking industry that has grown up because a bunch of pretentious princesses feel the need to have a three-ring-circus of a wedding. It makes me want to puke.

Alright. I'm done now.

This is the third mention of Swarovski Crystals I've seen through MeFi today: they are on the bikinis at ClassyBride, the Bling water bottle, and the guy's Sidekick in this story. WTF?

Sorry to hear about your divorce, Green Eyed Monster. (But yeah, I gotta agree. Who needs this crap?)

Well, if you need a bridesmaid for your next wedding, I'm there, as long as you buy me these $40 flip-flops.

Yee Gods. That's all I can say.

Emergency flip-flops! Of course! A bargain at half the price!
posted by Green Eyed Monster at 2:15 PM on March 9, 2007


They aren't even real flip-flops, like the kind you buy at Old Navy for $3! They FOLD IN HALF!

A sighting in the wild. The statement here just confused me utterly: does it mean "Stare at my ass!"? "Don't stare at my ass, I'm now married!"? I compromised by pointing her ass out to my own new bride, and we enjoyed a bonding/snickering moment.

I'm sure all the guys love this

They don't have anything for that disreputable guy at the wedding who wants to fuck your sister.
posted by Mister_A at 2:23 PM on March 9, 2007


the M&Ms with the couple's names and little hearts on them at every table at the reception...

We gave people these m&ms at our wedding, without the hearts, in little metal containers that I filled myself. I liked them. Sorry you see this as a tithe to the Wedding Industrial Complex or a sign of the coming apocalypse. Your convictions do not shake my profound belief in the ameliorating qualities of chocolate.
posted by onlyconnect at 2:27 PM on March 9, 2007


Yes, they do, just get the boxers, but have "Your Name Here" embroidered on the fly.

PS. I love chocolate. In fact, if it was a man, I would marry it.

DU's Theorem of URLs #2: Nothing says "classy" like the word "classy" in your URL.

(DU's Theorem of URLs #1 is: If the URL has a number in it, especially if it is represented numerically and ESPECIALLY especially if it is at the beginning of the URL, the site is a scam. Example: 84makemoneytodayforreals.com)

Note that the listing says the fly is SEWN SHUT because of the embroidery. Her name, sewing his fly shut. Not a good omen.

Now would be around the right time for that asteroid to hit the Earth - between this and the Bling water... for chrissakes...
posted by dbiedny at 2:39 PM on March 9, 2007


Haha! You've been emasculated by embroidery.

For real though, my unit would just go all Incredible Hulk on them man-panties. But why would you put the bride's name on there? It kinda looks like you're naming your fuck-stick "Jane" or some weird shit.

Swarovski is now run by a much younger and more marketing-savvy daughter of the family, and she's been very canny as to licensing the brand and exploiting all kinds of potential niche markets.

I even bought my wife one of these rather pretty necklaces. Doesn't change the fact that 99.5% of crystal-bedecked commodities, Swarovski or otherwise, look like yesterday's ass.

I really like that informercials are starting to feature crappy numerically-prepended URLs like this. Instead of half a dozen repetitions of "1-800-CAT-HATS", you get half a dozen repetitions of "www.77cathats.com".

Marriage is dead. It's on the ground twitching, and some of us mistake that for a sign of life.

This site is just a reflection of that.

GET OUT OF MY HEAD YOU CIRCUS FREAK
posted by loquacious at 3:39 PM on March 9, 2007


Heh. Maybe we need a "Tonstant Bloggah" or some such.

Man, what is it with the ass-writing on pants these days? And how long are you going to wear your "Soon to be Mrs. HisProperty" hoodies, anyway? Do you hand it off to his next wife upon the divorce?
posted by jenfullmoon at 3:44 PM on March 9, 2007


I tried in vain to find a link to anywhere you can buy "I Love My Cunt" panties, as I think that would be a much more appropriate wedding gift. I know my wife loves hers, anyway.

Alert the GOP, this clearly lessens the sanctity of marriage!

You know what I gave my bride on our wedding day? A ride to the courthouse.

Rob Zombie was playing.

It was very romantic.
posted by quin at 3:50 PM on March 9, 2007


I think the ass-writing is an attempt to ride on the, ah, coattails of the inexplicably popular Juicy Couture, although if someone was doing it before them I really don't want to know; it's bad enough I have brain cells wasted on this piece of trivia as is.

Me, I'm thinking maybe it's time to bust out the stash of jewelry-making supplies and some old yoga pants, and make myself some DIY bling that says STOP STARING AT MY ASS in big sparkly letters.

Truly, the Bedazzler's time has come.
posted by zusty at 4:07 PM on March 9, 2007


All of this stuff is slightly ridiculous, especially in large doses. But used in moderation, 'wedding stuff' can be cute. One of my best memories of my brother's wedding is of him and his new bride bunny hopping down a beach in Maui in an attempt to get their matching 'Just Married' sand imprinting flip-flops to imprint the sand properly.
posted by jacquilynne at 4:15 PM on March 9, 2007


Remember, every time you pack more bling in dat trunk you make a filthy rich wigger factorer a little more rich. Think about that, why aren't you richer and he is thanks to you ? Dat isn't respek !
posted by elpapacito at 6:21 PM on March 9, 2007


I refused to have any crap to give out at my wedding besides good food, beer, wine & champagne. I can't tell you how many bottles of bubbles, ugly picture frames, mints, mesh bags of crap, and bad CD's I've thrown away after weddings. Save the cash you would spend on this crap and spend it on better wine, for god's sake!!!

Wedding stuff is NEVER cute. It's annoying and schmaltzy and cheesy and the only people who enjoy it are the squeeling bridesmaids who help pick it out. Ugh.

Klassy it is...in a trailer park!

Can you get one that says "Future Ex Wife", because that would be good like more than 50% of the time? And starting a relationship with honesty and without delusions, that's what really makes a marriage. Well, that and sparkly words on your wife’s cooter.

This reminds me of krispy kreme wedding cakes, which make me sad.

It is a sad fact that 50 percent of marriages in this country end in divorce. But hey, the other half end in death. You could be one of the lucky ones!"

ThePinkSuperhero, unbelievably lush from the pre-revolutionary French styled outfits the whole wedding party wore to the beautiful garden the groom's parents put in for the wedding. However, it was tacky at the same time because they had to do everything in the same style, but the footmen had these cheesy cardboard pikes (obviously real pikes would have been an issue). Plus I liked the food better at my $5000 wedding, even though their caterer's food looked better.I think it was mostly a quarter-million because the groom's mom was one of those amateur perfectionists who knew what she wanted, but not how to get there. If I were forced by brain damage to spend that much money on a single party, I like to think I'd do better. It was still a fun party though.
