A Beast of a Wedding Theme

When I was a kid, I went through a phase where I watched Beauty and the Beast on VHS every weekend, so it's safe to say I love that movie. I love the music, I love the new live action version, I love the musical, and I love the Be Our Guest restaurant at Disney World.

Say Yes to the Dress: My Kleinfeld Experience

If you’re a woman with a love of fashion and a lackluster social life, you’ve probably sat at home alone on a Friday or Saturday night watching Say Yes to the Dress. For those too cool to watch, the show follows brides as they shop for their dream wedding gowns at Kleinfeld Bridal in New York City.

Curve Couture

Last week was rough, but I'm back with another Wedding Wednesday! I know all of my readers (Hi, Mom, Dad, and Janet!) are enthused.

I had posted before about how chubby broads can feel invisible to the bridal industrial complex. So, I was thrilled to see that Anne Barge is now offering trunk shows with larger sample sizes!

Called Curve Couture, these trunk shows will feature samples in sizes 12-20. Typical bridal trunk shows offer sizes 4-8. Finally the pleasantly
