Wonder Woman gets married

Pledge allegiance as well as lifelong fealty at your wedding. Though some of us confirmed singletons might consider weddings to be about a loss of liberty, there are a lot of products out there "perfect for any bride who wants to make her wedding day a tribute to America."

That dress Wonder Woman is wearing is stunning.

Uh, isn't wearing a flag that drags on the ground... you know... flag desecration?

Not to mention marriage desecration...

3. The flag should not be displayed on days when the weather is inclement (hopefully not your wedding day!!!!)

I'm getting married in January. We were going to do "cozy and elegant," but after seeing those links, I want a fascist wedding. Can't wait to hear Lee Greenwood as I walk down the aisle.

Red, White & Blue symbolizes the courage, strength and resiliency of Americans (Brits too)

Question, for any female MeFites: Would you wear stick-on body jewels on your wedding day, patriotic or not?

Just curious...

That is an amazing dress. I know a drag queen I'm so sending that link to.

And yes, I'd wear stick-on jewels, but I'm the kind of girl who looks up to drag queens.

Those things are just scary!

And jughead, I can't think of anytime, save as a Halloween costume, when I might wear stick-on jewels. Or any piece of clothing made to look like any flag.

I don't see myself as a flagpole.

Don't forget the French, or the Ruskies!

The American flag represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing, therefore if you where a lapel pin of the flag on your dress or suit, it must be on the left side, near the heart.

They're kidding, right? Is this like the host becoming the body of Christ or something? The flag is a living thing? Americans, please comment...

Fetching. Why stop with the wedding tho - it's a perfect theme for the whole trousseau.

I'm the kind of girl who looks up to drag queens.
haha, Joan - me too. Maybe we could both take some lessons from Miss Vera.

For the groom: this or this or this.

So, on the wedding night the husband can do it one time for Old Glory? :-) (or the Queen)

Actually, I'm a woman, my pr0n is usually, uh, pr0n.

Wedding dresses are pr0n for all women, just for that narrow band of women for whom being married is the end all and be all of existence. (a.k.a. The Desperate Bride, Bridezilla or Selfless Idiot.)

My brothers are I were auditioned to perform at a wedding last summer (we have a jazz/standards trio) and the bride really liked us. We were leaving with the understanding that she had one more group to see then she'd be in contact, then she piped up (in totally cheery-like-Reese-in-Legally-Blonde fashion) "Oh, the wedding colours are red, white and blue, you know, patriotism and go America! Now, I'm wearing the white, so I'm asking everyone else to do the red and the blue, would that you a problem for you?" We smiled and made non-committal noises and found a fortunate scheduling conflict. Ouch.

Does Americanism count as a religion yet? Will it be a religious subculture in a couple hundred years?

after the inevitable collapse of the American Empire, the long-awaited Canadian invasion and the resulting heartland diaspora, aeschenkarnos, it'll be the new mystery cult, with secret rites and a pantheon of late-18th century prophets...

By passing around the link to only that dress's picture, everyone is missing out on the five other dresses by the same maker. If you scroll past The Denim Collection (?!) you'll find America's Bride.

No, I would not wear stick-on body jewels. I have a real tattoo, thank you. And I agree - my preferred porn is, well, porn.
