  2. I think people who are interested in good photos need to learn more about what to ask a photographer for, not how to have these totally non-timeless, twee photo ops.

    I look at our photos and there are MORE THAN ENOUGH of us. I wish we had more photos of my family dancing or my girlfriends helping me with flowers or hanging out while I got ready, etc. I wish I had better indicated to our photographer who were the important people to get photos of.

    1. This is *so true*. Even a bunch of lined-up-like-a-baseball-team group pictures will still have a lot of value in 10 years ... you can see everyone's faces!

  3. Yep, this is super lame. Staged photos are the worst. Especially when inspired by the nostalgia of things like The Little Rascals (old bicycles, etc)...

  4. teepees as wedding props are totally acceptable right? maybe throw in a dream catcher and some feathers for authenticity?

    2. Nothing is worse than white people impersonating Native Americans in portraits. There is nothing ok about this stupid trend. The feather crowns, the teepees, the ponchos....STOPPIT!!!!

  7. Garland should be outlawed. Along with those striped straws.

    1. Those striped straws are THE WORST. They get soggy immediately and have a horrible "mouth feel."

    2. I just bought stainless steel straws from Sur La Table and my life is forever changed.

    3. We have some metal straws from Crate and Barrel that have a small spoon on one end. They are amazing for making and drinking bloody marys.

    4. Somehow my order from the wedding website that shall not be named for a handful of paper lanterns got stuck with someone else's, and I ended up with about 200 of those paper straws plus six pink/one white parasols.

      I gave the straws away immediately. I can't bring myself to give away the parasols.

  8. Why would I want to sit in a teepee?

  9. fuck this. everyone knows that all wedding fotos EVAR should be taken in DUMBO. cause it's so fucking artsy and edgy here, what with all the baby strollers and bankers.

    1. my wedding was in DUMBO and yet the only photos we have outside were taken on the building's roof. it was too cold outside and there was too much snow to get outside on the streets, but there wouldn't have been any baby strollers or bankers out in that weather.

    2. at the risk of sounding like i'm back pedaling (i'm not), getting pics taken here because you got married here is different from staging pictures here because you like the backdrop, and then yelling at residents to STOP WALKING INTO YOUR FUCKING PHOTOS !

      that said, my sorry ass is out with my baby stroller and dog (no banker though -- DAMN!) whatever the weather.

  10. This is hilarious. Did anyone else have a Liz-Lemon level eye roll at the D*S post yesterday on the "best of dream catchers"?

    1. Jesus, I just went to look at it. Their little "here's an article about why dream catchers are okay" definitely made me a little ill.

      Delete
    2. Zomg. "Jezebel had a great article on cultural appropriation here that explains why dream catchers are not very problematic..." Reading comprehension fail.

  11. Does this artist not know that a tandem bike is often called the divorce machine? I would love to see a non-tandem riding couple try to ride away after getting married. I might even quietly grab my present back from the pile, knowing what's coming.
