I hardly know where to begin with her today following that 8,000-word steaming heap of lies that is her biography and her utter disbelief that people don’t snoop through their boyfriends’ e-mails and phones (I called that one, by the way, and theorized that all her MALE POLITICIANS ARE ALL CHEATING ASSHOLES shite was because she stumbled upon something in Pancakes Land that suggested the old man didn’t take to the donkey). Jesus, she is crazy.
But I love her justification of the Bridezilla column and Windy City horror show to a commenter who asked: What the fuck?
After watching this and reading your column I’m just having some difficulty understanding why asking your guests to refrain from using their cell phones for 30-60 minutes is considered a “bridezilla” move. Unless it is a full Catholic mass a wedding ceremony is short (even with a full mass we’re really only talking an hour and 10 min). Text and tweet all you want on the way to the ceremony or while you’re on the dance floor. But for that brief period of time, where you are watching two people (who have spent an obscene amount of money on this day and who have been gracious enough to invite you) in love making the committment to spend the rest of their lives together, is it really necessary to pick up that phone?
I know you obviously weren’t telling people go ahead a wedding should be a facebook-ing free for all, but I guess it was more your attitude toward the bride that struck me in your column. I’m sure you were trying to be funny but i guess it just seemed a little mean. You seemed to take the question concerning not allowing tweeting during the ceremony really personally and acted like this writer was a totally out of line to even suggest no “social media” in the ceremony. I guess I didn’t see how the question made this bride a total bridezilla/control freak (and trust me you’ll know a true bridezilla when you meet one…we’re talking lose 15 lbs, no underarm jiggle in the bridal party allowed, don’t cut your hair or you’re paying for extensions, please spray tan 2 days before the wedding, get your manicure re-done if a tip dares to get chipped, etc.). This woman just seemed to be looking for a bit of advice from a “social media” expert and all she seemed to get was an antagonistic scolding.
Yeah, I was just trying to have fun with it. I think it’s nice to hear a contrary perspective (because all of the other advice out there is like “NO SOCIAL MEDIA WHATSOEVER!”) I thought the couple who updated their Facebook status during their vows were pretty funny
Hey, Ding Dong. This blog? We’re just trying to have some fun with it! Don’t take it so seriously! Hahah! LOL!!
