Back in the day, when I got married, there was not all the hoopla and fanfare that went along with announcing to the world that one was a bride to be. Now, I see banners and tiaras and today I saw a Bride Hoodie and I thought to myself, why would a bride wear a hoodie? Unless of course she was getting married in the colder months. But again, if she is out partying and celebrating her soon to be no-longer-single status, wouldn’t she be dressed just a little more fancy? A little less casual? I asked the teenagers and even they were confused, 17 stating that she liked the idea of a hoodie to wear around after the wedding, but not while celebrating before. Maybe I’m just old and out of touch. I guess that’s what happens when you’ve been married for nearly 20 years.
