Do they ALWAYS say ’til death do us part?

May 30, 2008

bridal-2-crop-140.jpgWell Mom, at long last, meet Patty – my sweet bride! Oh, I think Patty likes you, Mom! She doesn’t usually smile that much. Patty is too shy to tell you herself, but see those white doves in her hair? She shot them herself!

The flour make-up was her idea. She says it will cut the chances anybody will recognize her from our wedding photos.

I mean, sure, Patty has paid her debt to society. But you know Mom, it’s just like she always says, “If they want to find a body in your backyard bad enough, they’ll find it!”

Just think, Mom, in an hour, she’ll be family!

Why did this designer decide to sabotage his own creation by doing a horrible makeup job? I thought the whole point of showcasing the work was to sell a product. This designer might as well use large frompy women and have them wear trashbags then he could make his non-point and individualistic.
