On Friday night, I looked for inspiration as I teased my hair and applied my blue eyeshadow.
And then it came to me: "What Would Britney Do?"
Well, we all know that Britney would have walked barefoot into the gas station bathroom on her way to the White Trash Wedding. And while I couldn't bring myself to do that, I did buy my faux bouquet at CVS. Actually, I think my true inspiration was a cross between Britney and Joy from My Name is Earl.
Let me present, my white trash alter ego, Velma: Please note that the Budweiser is a prop. All I drank was 7UP, I swear.
And here is Richard's inner redneck, Cletus: His polyester jacket has pleather points on the pockets. His pig hat has a pipe cleaner tail on the back. He ironed his jeans, so there was a crease down the middle. And of course, the bolo tie. His only problem was that he was, if anything, too authentic. We've been to several casual weddings, and there have been quite a few uncles/cousins who thought that this outfit was the standard wedding uniform.
The majority of attendees of the party at the VFW Hall in Sun valley dressed up, which was cool, although many confused "wedding" with "monster-truck rally." There were several faux-pregnant brides and attendees, but I think I was the only one who was, in fact, in a "delicate condition." There was a lot of dancing, which I did some of (only 1 or 2 dances before my feet & back protested), and a lot of drinking, which I did not do. But it was still a lot of fun. I love costumes and dressing up, so this party was perfect for me!
