I can hear the bells (and gun shots)

11 Aug

Weddings are beautiful celebrations of growth and rebirth, coming together, and delicious free food. Hunting is about killing animals, taking photos with their bodies, and eating them.

Do hunting-themed weddings send a subversive message about the nasty origins of the perfect banquet typically served at such events? Or are they just sort of ugly? I’m leaning towards ugly.

If the bride were incorporated in the theme, you could run the risk of losing sight of her throughout the day. And who has eyesight sharp enough, after a few flutes of champagne, to catch a camo-coloured bouquet?

A screencap of a picture of a camo wedding dress, with resulting discussion.Now, no one’s using the word trashy. I’m not the one who pinned this to a board called “Redneck to the Bone.”

How would one propose to a pinner with several “redneck” boards?

A screencap of camo-coloured wedding bands and engagement rings. Perfect. One question: Why would you embed a ring coated to be impossible to see with sparkly, conspicious diamonds? Counter-productive, no?

Camo works best on the cake. You’ll be able to cut costs by buying fewer tiers, as many guests won’t be able to find it in your camo-coloured ballroom.

A camo decorated wedding cake, complete with deer and doe caketoppers. Two presumably hunted deer for a cake topper? How romantic!

Nothing says matrimonial bliss like BANG BANG Bambi’s mother is dead. And she’s now sitting on top of our cake.

    I live in Alabama and know more than my share of rednecks. Even they would think that getting married in a camo dress is trashy.

    Not that I have anything against being trashy (I often am myself). I just have a problem with people who are in denial about their trashiness.

      Yep, it’s the denial that gets me too.

    The cake gets far funnier when you consider it’s a young buck with an older buck. Considering the rednecks I know, that wasn’t exactly what they were going for.
