Bridezilla Femzilla!

Cruising the interwebs, I found this article about a woman who wanted to have a "feminist wedding." To sum up, the author (a self described feminist) wanted to get married, but found a lot of the trappings of traditional weddings (the proposal, asking the father of the bride for permission, white dress) to be sexist, patriarchal, etc. First note--hey, not everything has to be a political statement! Sometimes a bride wants to have her father walk her down the aisle because it would make the old guy happy, or because it's a touching father-daughter moment. And news flash--it's usually not the groom who wants all the "traditional" stuff at a wedding--these things are almost always planned in detail by the bride and her mother.

Which brings me to my second note--imagine for a minute a wedding left entirely up to the groom to be. Kegs, rock bands, whiskey fountains, jugglers, open pit barbecues, and maybe even a visit from that guy on Route 40 who has all the exotic reptiles? Who WOULDN'T want to go to such an awesome party?


  1. Take out the reptiles, and throw in a Slip n' Slide, and you've got my dream wedding.

  2. Sounds like there's a need for a wedding planner for guys!
