We all know that I am pretty obsessed with all things wedding, so you may be surprised to learn that it is really quite rare that I pay much attention to celebrity weddings. I guess they are often so over the top, and to be frank, often lack much of the creativity one gets with something a little more home-grown. I'm not really into the sort of DIY, handmade thing either, but I like a sort of mix, I guess, of opulence and home-spun classic goodness. Its hard to find the right middle ground, I think, that really pleases my eye.
And you know who TOTALLY missed the mark? Hilary Duff. I mean, for really. It shouldn't really surprise me that a teenagers wedding wasn't really all that and a bag of chips, but this one is just SO off I had to blog about it ... sorry, Hilary, but really?
Exhibit A: The hair.
Exhibit 2: Spelling mistakes. Oh my.
Exhibit 3: Really terrible, not-good kind of retro 90's blue uplighting
Exhibit 4: Icing-less cake. So Hilary said she wanted her wedding to have that home-grown kind of feel that is uber popular in weddings these days. Well, as stated, we all now know that I'm not a huge fan, but I HAVE seen it done really well. And Hilary, darling, with everything else your wedding had going on, a random icing-less cake does NOT make it home-grown. It just looks weird, unfinished, and out of place.
Well, my mom always told me not to say anything if I have nothing nice to say, so here it is.
Her ceremony space looked really pretty.
Sorry, Hilary, I know you're just a kid, but somebody should have hired you a better wedding coordinator. hey, like my friend Emilia over at Sweet Emilia Jane - she's pretty awesome and DEFINITELY would have thrown you the prettiest little home grown wedding you've ever seen!!!!
