thanks for the submission Vanessa
I came across these photoshopped wedding invites quite by accident, but I’m glad I did. All done by the groom’s sister. They are really silly, and I think its a fun idea. ”Young love” is my personal favorite.
“So, sometime in December my brother Daniel is getting married. Congratulations Daniel! – To help celebrate the occasion, and because they didn’t ask me to help, I am going to make a new wedding invitation for them every week until they get married One can see right away that these wedding invitations are not going to be good in any way. In fact, they are going to be as terrible as I can make them. So stay tuned. (So, I’m not really that bitter or anything, I just want to make silly wedding invitations as an attempt to haze my brother a bit) “
This is from one of my all time FAVORITE blogs, Passive Aggressive Notes.
” At a recent wedding that Allison in Raleigh, NC attended, the bride asked that, instead of signing a guestbook, wedding guests write their wishes for the couple on fabric squares that would later be made into a memory quilt. When Allison saw this one sitting on top, she couldn’t resist snapping a photo.”
The fabric swatch reads:
“One can only hope that you saved yourself for your wedding night. -Jennifer + John”
Man, I hope they put that one front and center on the quilt. Classic.
Below are a few pictures from photographer Neelakshi Vidyalankara’s online portfolio of an Irish Gypsy Wedding between two 16 year-old third cousins. The rest of her photos in the gallery are fabulous, Ms. Vidyalankara is a very talented photojournalist!
From the intro:
“Mary Connors, one of five siblings, marries her third cousin Patrick Connors – both are 16 years old. There is an estimated 19,000 Irish Travellers in the UK, the majority of whom are devout Catholics. A highly marginalised and insular community, there is often much social antipathy towards them. Irish Traveller girls don’t work, most are illiterate and they remain teetotal virgins until they marry – which is usually very young. The more wealthy families have weddings that are often lavish ostentatious affairs of expensive cars and designer clothes (25-tier cakes, wedding dresses encrusted with Austrian Crystals costing thousands of pounds and huge diamante tiaras). The weddings are highly charged with exuberant emotion, free flowing alcohol and an innate love of life.”
Ooooof. This is SO bad. Italian athlete Clemente Russo won a Silver Medal at the 2008 Olympics for Boxing, but he won’t be taking away any honors for this atrocious pimp-esque getup that he wore to his wedding to Laura Maddaloni. Fur?? Top hat? Silk shirt? Gold CANE???!!!! Noooooooo!
BARF the wedding dress is terrible too!
Many thanks to Silvana for this!
