^ I often think that these bridal fascinators or whatever you would like to call them will be the 1980's-90's wedding hats of the era:

[Image Can Not Be Found]

my money is on the face eating headdresses and the weird floral tumors that are supposed to be crowns that will cause these girls to hide their wedding photos in the future, and I'm a floral designer. I'm so happy to have found GOMI and the wedding blog forums-I've been dying for an outlet for this stuff and my own blog isn't the place for it. Also, apologies if the formatting of this looks funny. The font is giant on my screen.

Yeah, they definitely won't like them, especially if they pride themselves on being stylish!  It's beyond me why you would spend a ton of money on a photographer and then wear a head tumor and stand next to a rustic table in the middle of the woods. Then you submit it to a popular wedding blog and everyone copies.  You end up looking like a fashion victim instead of oh-so-creative and stylish.

I was banned from commenting on SMP last year. It was when they did a series of photoshoot fake weddings with a Great Gatsby theme, and apparently it is not in keeping with the site's spirit to point out that that is an idiotic theme since it is a book about adultery. 

HAAAAAAAhahahhaahhaha.

 

I died laughing at my desk and everybody looked at me like I'm a crazy ham.

All of last year's stupid GATSBY glorification (weddings, cocktail parties, whatever) was so frustrating. Read the book, people. Yes, people looked cool, but it's not exactly a book you want to live, especially in terms of a wedding. A guy in particular I know (and hate) went on a big "Jay Gatsby is my role model" kick and started calling people "old chap". Thanks a lot, Baz Luhrmann.

Anyway, so sorry, so off-topic, so fat. shutupsigh

Another SMP stock phrase that always made me roll my eyes:
"Grab a bit of bubbly, get cozy and dive in…" From the wedding gowns post on April 18.
http://www.stylemepretty.com/2014/04/18/the-hottest-trends-from-the-spring-2015-bridal-market/
(sorry, can't link right now)
They have been doing this for years. "Grab a cup of coffee/a cocktail and get cozy" I guess they are saying that there's so much to see, you'll be there a while? The "bubbly" is probably the worst version of this bit of blogger triteness I've heard yet. This phrase is STALE.

I'll be honest and say I am a sucker for pretty weddings, so I used to like visiting SMP when I had down time at work. My main gripes are that all of the weddings look identical now and SMP tends not to feature black couples. I'm black, as is my husband, so I do like looking at wedding pictures with other black couples. I know couples submit to the website for consideration, but I have a hard time believing they don't get submissions from black couples. That's just a personal pet peeve.

Im pretty sure photographers submit the photos. I swear I've seen references to this in the blog like "We love it when John Doe sends us a wedding."

Interesting. I was talking to my husband about this. I'm black, he's white. Our photos were featured on the site about a month ago (our photog submitted them). However, my husband pointed out that IF someone of color is featured their significant other is not. That's a big leap, and I'm sure someone can hold me/my husband accountable for our broad generalization. chair

YES. All these charities in my town keep having "Great Gatsby Gala" themed fundraisers and I'm like F. Scott Fitzgerald would roll his eyes sooo hard at this.
