News, but not the serious kind
It was one of those challenges that modern women with full lives sometimes have to face, and Pam did it beautifully.
Her to-do list told her that on Saturday she had to get married, then rush immediately to play in a pro football game, and then cover her evening shift as a street mime. A born problem solver, Pam had the brilliant idea of buying a wedding gown that would cover her bulky shoulder pads during her nuptials, and she also saved time by wearing her cake mime makeup during the ceremony.
As you can see in this photo, our plucky Pam pulled it off so deftly that it hardly showed. You go, girl!

If you’re not into long engagements, this creation unveiled at London Fashion Week on Valentine’s Day might be just the thing for you.
Dubbed the “Chapel in a Chapeau,” it’s everything today’s busy woman needs for a quick wedding. Just pull down the brim and you have a lovely bridal gown, and that’s only the beginning. It also holds two gold bands, some rice and a small cake, plus steak knives, a fondue pot and other wedding presents.
This bridal outfit, shown yesterday at a fashion show, is more practical than it looks. Brides like to keep their wedding dress forever, and that means a large cardboard box goes with you every time you move, year after year, until you die. By contrast, this ”gown” fits in a handy ziplock sandwich bag, where it can stay until you want to wear it to renew your vows 50 years from now.
