Your bride is quite a ketch…
Blog Guy, I really need some of your famous fashion help to plan my wedding. We’re getting married outdoors, at a yacht club, and the area where I wait to enter the ceremony is quite a distance from the altar.
I’m a very slow walker, and I’m worried my fiancé will just marry my trampy bridesmaid if I don’t get there fast enough.
Are you really going to help, or just sit there making truly asinine sailing puns?
I’d like to do both, without the stern reprimand.
Here’s what you do. Plan a downwind course to the altar, and make your wedding dress from a spinnaker sail. It will catch the gusts and get you to the altar before you know it. Check out this bride here, on the way to tying the knot.
A spinnaker, huh? The wind is supposed to be pretty strong that day. Have you done this before?
Indeed, I had a bride do the same thing last week, at a yacht club in Connecticut. The hull nine yards.
And she was happy with the result?
I don’t know, but I expect to hear from her soon. She’s been spotted over the Horn of Africa….
