I love watching wedding shows. I read tons of wedding blogs. I get no greater pleasure than when I log on to facebook and someone has posted wedding pictures - from their own wedding, from a stranger's wedding, whatever. (True Story - December 2008 I had to de-activate facebook until finals were over after I realized that I had spent 3.5 hours going through the wedding pictures of complete strangers).
Why do I love looking at weddings so much? Because I'm wistfully planning my own? Nah, not really. As my friend and new reader L and I discussed recently, I don't really know what I want for my own wedding, whenever that may be. I just know what I DON'T want. I LOVE looking at tacky weddings.
And not tacky weddings like that website that shows brides in camo and grooms with mullets, that's just too obvious. I like the ones that just tried to hard and turn out awful.
I see SO MANY god awful weddings out there... Honestly the wedding of one of my pledge sisters is so awful I just wish I could post it for you guys to see. But I don't want to go STRAIGHT to hell, so I'm refraining.
Side note: Yes, I realize I am a huge bitch. This is not a new development.
So today I'm at the gym and Say Yes to the Dress comes on TLC. I freaking love that show. Again, not because I love the beautiful dresses, but because I love watching the seriously ugly ones that these chicks pick out. Today a girl on the show said "I'm the most beautiful bride I've ever seen!"and I was howling laughing so hard I almost fell off the treadmill.
One designer that seems to be featured on the show ALL.THE.TIME is Pnina Tornai. I'd never heard of her until the show. And now that I think about it, I've never heard of her outside of the show.
Some of her dresses are pretty. But some of them are SO AWFUL I would never let a Pnina Tornai frock (even the pretty ones) near my body for fear of catching something. This one dress in particular just keeps showing up on the show over and over again. DEAR GOD WHY!

thoughts going through my head whenever this dress appears:
WHEN IS SEE-THROUGH EVER APPROPRIATE IN ANY TYPE OF CLOTHING? WHY DO YOU THINK IT'S OKAY TO GET MARRIED LOOKING LIKE A HOOKER? DEAR GOD I HOPE YOU AREN'T GETTING MARRIED IN A CHURCH!!!
A couple more Pnina Tornai gems that make me wanna ralph:

So my final thoughts to you, readers:
For the love of all that is good PLEASE do not pick any of these dresses. or anything similar. But if you do, pretty pretty please send me a link to the pics from your wedding?
