I was just sharing something I thought was outrageous/nuts/fun/crazy/different//brave/eye catching/playful, and yes….a picture where the bridesmaids looked pleasantly, funnily, awkward in full-scale costume. Awkward to me is Liz Lemon, or Leslie Knope. It’s not a bad thing, it’s funny, silly, charming and memorable. I’d certainly have a good (friendly) laugh at my own awkwardness if I were in this wedding.
So no harm meant.

Oh my god… There are no words….
Wait, there is one word. WHY?

I’m sure you don’t know this and therefore aren’t making a personal attack, but there was a blogger bee here for a while who was doing this exact thing and was berated and seriously made fun of by people about her idea…which she loved. She eventually left and stopped blogging here and I think several people think it had to do with the abuse she encountered.
Just in case anyone comes on this thread and gives you a hard time and you don’t know where it’s coming from!
*And for clarification sake, i’m totally not giving you a hard time. This idea is certainly not for me.

I’ve never actually seen the Disney version of The Little Mermaid, but in the original story, the mermaid doesn’t get to marry the prince and then dies by suicide. WHY would someone dress as the little mermaid on their wedding day??

I think they’re kind of clever, but why aren’t the guys also dressed up???

It’s a bit of fun. I’d certainly be happy to one of her BMs. (I was expecting super-revealing Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, the one thing I would refuse).

I think it’s adorable! Clearly they love disney, and it was very well executed. I’ve seen MUCH worse bridesmaids dresses than that.

Oh no. I’m usually not the one to judge… but I feel like… oh man. I shouldnt even say it. I feel like I did this sort of thing in high school. But, I’m sure there are things in my wedding that other people may not approve of. And, I think if I knew this person, meaning that they were my friend, I would understand her personality and what makes her happy, so I would be able to set aside my judgement and be happy for her.

My dress was called “Ariel” and I feel like I seriously missed an opportunity here.

I am pretty much meh about the whole idea. But….Am I the only one that thinks the wedding dress looks positively bland next to those colorful costumes?

Those are some good friends right there.

Yeah… that’s a little crazy! But at least you could wear it for halloween!
I had to wear a long sleeve velvet dress, in june, with a hoop skirt, and a rope (yes, really, a rope) tying around the waist. It was supposed to be modeled after a Gone with the Wind dress, kinda like this. It wasn’t nearly as nice (her mom made it).
@sleepyhead22: They were! (Saw an article on Yahoo with tons of pics from this wedding).
