Ten-Year-Old Brides

Keep in mind that this story is about our friends in that part of the world. Not those nasty Taliban. We're talking about those delightful oil-rich Saudis for whom the Bush family has so much affection.



If you're wondering what Disney wedding dresses look like, here's a photo. They don't look as cheesy as I thought they would -- though the Belle dress looks a little too much like a melting plastic cup. Apparently they hired some big-name designer. She even includes suggestions for enhancing the chosen Disney theme of your wedding, such as having a Caribbean band for your Ariel (Little Mermaid) beach wedding. Is it too cynical of me to suspect that the Disney folks had the Saudi market in mind when they commissioned these?

I know it's a typical "model thing," but what's up with the expressions on these brides' faces? If my bride showed up at the altar with any of those expressions on her face, I would have bailed. Ariel, especially, is giving off a "Wipe that smile off your face, dickweed" vibe.

LOL, I rather think that look is for the maid of honor who bought a dress that shows too much cleavage and always had a crush for the groom. To me it says "I'm the one getting married, beyatch! So don't try to outshine me or I'll stick my shoe hills up your ass" ;-)
