Oh Catholic bride--- put your clothes on.

Rod and I went to a wedding last night. I didn't want to go but the groom is a friend of Rocky's so I had to and once I got there it was fine. I won't say what church it was for reasons that will be obvious in a second.

What is this thing that Catholic girls seem to have about strapless wedding dresses? The bride's dress was lovely but we didn't need to see her semi naked self. Ladies save your candy for the bedroom. You are making a life long vow before Christ, the King. Show Him respect. And the bride was not entirely kind to the fatter bridesmaids. They didn't need the plunging front and back necklines or the sleeveless gowns either. Oh well, the reception was great.

Why ever did the priest allow this spectacle in th House of God? Not so very long ago, this would not have happened. Human respect, alas, is a problem for us all, but the priest must stand tall and speak the truth. Maybe you could write to him, Dymphna, or send him a copy of this post.

I think a lot of priests are afraid of angering brides. The priest in this case is a fine man but way too meek to face down a bride who's determined to show herself.

"Save your candy for the bedroom" -- Well said! Thank you!

I wrote about this same subject once (but in a different way):

A priest I know keeps a number of shawls on hand and brides are told what the dress code is. If they show up bare they get the shawl. Frankly, I'd give them a Fatima T-shirt. That would sure make for interesting photos!

The bridal shops in our area, as well as the bride magazines, show mostly strapless or barely strapped wedding gowns. If you want sleeves, forget it. If you want a high neckline, you have to go vintage or make it yourself.

Have you considered converting to Islam? Militant Muslims hate women too! Or is it just that you've been one of those fat bridesmaids and didn't want to be reminded of how you look?

Susan,
Do you have anything better to do with your time than troll around the internet LOOKING for stuff to leave nasty comments about?

If you knew the audience of this blog or anything about what's actually taught in the Catholic Catechism, you'd know you're out of your league here, in the dark with absolutely no understanding.

Charlotte, Charlotte: You poor brainwashed Catholic. Don't you have some altar linens to clean or something? But back to Dympha: what a generous guest! You eat the food your hosts provide and proceed to bad-mouth them on your blog. If the event were so horrific, then why didn't you just leave?

Charlotte said...

Susan,
If this blog is so bad, why are you back?

Susan said...

Excellent question Charlotte! Perhaps I'm the person who paid for Dympha's dinner at the wedding....and maybe I'm not the only person she's bad-mouthed who've seem themselves in her blog.
