Thematic Repelling: Wedding Day

by Leandra Medine
July 5, 2012
READ NEXT

Here is where real shit starts.

Some said it was impossible, I said: please pass the Vogue. Some said the repelling might end where the altar would start, I said: have you ever gotten your period in bed next to your companion? How about diarrhea? Some said the white dress may render too simple for a complex freak like the you or the me. I said: accoutrements, baby. You asked, here it is: a photo unfiltered by Instagram of the fat ass I wore to my, gasp, first wedding. I would imagine by now you’re well aware that I am a (wo)man that appreciates, nay, celebrates shock value and not just shock value, sHoCk VaLuE. So while you were likely expecting a proper flotation device that would allow no space for party guests to enter the room in which I would get hitch(ed,) my traditional white dress decision was actually in-line with an effort to continue procuring universals gasps from your mouths and shit. How otherwise would I have been able to pair an organza motorcycle jacket equipped with obligatory removable three-tier tulle peplum, arm and neck jewels, a flower crown and full face o’makeup without looking Transylvanian?

…Accoutrements. As for the technical fowls: Marchesa dress, custom motorcycle jacket by Rebecca Minkoff and my intellectual property, fresh to death and literally just plain fresh as in new flowers-Flower Crown by Tantawan Bloom–the bridesbitches wore Cult Gaia, Dannijo Siamese cuff bracelets, copious gold neck-chains from my grandma. Consider them my something borrowed and also the vehicle that allowed me to look like Mr. T but in white both pigmentation wise and sartorially. Bumble and Bumble did my hair and Makeup by Audra painted this face and them lashes onto my, you know, face. Wedding isn’t code for vanilla ice cream in the proverbial sense of that phrase. Wear what you want, be who you want, refrain from sex as long as you want. Marriage is about being able to wear your retainers at night, that’s all.

    You look unbelievably beautiful/ happy. My boyfriend just said to me; “I hope you look that cool if we get married.” 
    And so do I.

    I love that you were totally Y-O-U on your wedding day.  And no one could have anticipated exactly what that would look like.  “Wear what you want, be who you want…” That could be the tag line of your whole blog.  You’re a true original.  A lifetime of happiness to you and your man (who you obviously did not repel).

    i think you look SO beautiful and what looks so beautiful about you is your honesty, your wear your repellent like a badge and you never try to hard it, you except who you are- quirks and flaws in all its perfection. It should be embraced and applauded because youre not a downtrotting hopeless loser. Everybody grows and evolves and youre proof of that and I wait to see your further evolution and impeccable style. I say kudos! Its a good look, holla.

    Dude, or girl, whatever, however man repelling you wished to look or would like to have looked (yeah, I don’t speak English, you mind? :) ), you don’t, you look stunning, beautiful, and I hope you had the time of your life. Would have loved to been there, but I guess the second wedding is good enough… just kidding!

    Took my breathe away the second I saw you. As an engaged repeller myself, I look up to you in a way that pushes my wardrobe to the limit as well as my self-luvin tude. Life is about being yourself and finding someone to love you for it <3

  • Tami Von Zalez

    You look positively gorgeous – please, please show us more photos from the Big Day.  Ah, and marriage is so much more than retainer wearing, but you’ll figure that out all on your own.
    Cheers!

    If I ever get my Vegas wedding with pretend-Elvis, doughnuts and tommy guns like I’ve always dreamed of, I plan on being a funky casual bride. Like this but with less tulle because I’m a clumsy mofo.

    “Wedding isn’t code for vanilla ice cream in the proverbial sense of that phrase. Wear what you want, be who you want, refrain from sex as long as you want. Marriage is about being able to wear your retainers at night, that’s all.” 
    Damn that’s deep. SRSLY! Congratulations!

    I am so surprised! I didn’t even know you were engaged. I love Marchesa, and that dress is no exception. It looks absolutely stunning on you. Congratulations and don’t forget, you’re still a man repeller. Only now, it’s a good thing, because you’re married and your husband won’t have to keep batting them away.

  • Stephanie Feeley

    This look is absolutely stunning. I love the flower crown and moto jacket combo. Your husband is a lucky guy to have such a confident, creative, gorgeous and witty new bride! And about that last bit, everybody loves straight teeth. My English boyfriend revels in the fact that I am responsible enough to even BOTHER wearing my retainer ever…and thinks there’s hope for our future toothy, ginger children. Best wishes to you on the rest of your wedded life!

    I just discovered your blog due to an “Everybody Is Ugly” article on Chictopia and I will be reading it forevermore! If ‘repelling’ anyone was the intention, your efforts missed me, because I am ANYTHING but repelled by your posts. :-)

  • http://standardofelegance.wordpress.com/ Molly

    Sooo beautiful! I think it’s the perfect touch of whimsy for the big day. You definitely stayed true to your taste while incorporating classic elements (all white, tulle.) LOVE the flower crown and leather jacket. They are so you :)

  • CJ

    Okay, so I’m basically happy that you’re married because I guess a union bound together by love and shit is good and great and awesome, but I’m also sad because I feel like you didn’t really repel in the long run.  Whatever.  I still love you more than most of the other bloggers combined because you actually have a pulse and a personality.  Mehhhhhhhhh.  I always write long comments on here.  Sorry.

    Your wedding ensemble is very New York chic…….I Love it!!! Congratulations!!! I just married this summer in a beautiful dress with more traditional flavor. It was the best dress I saw, everything else was blah…..boring, plain or undesirable. If I saw the dress you are wearing……OMG!!! It would have been snatched up quickly!!!

    You’re so brave. What I love most is that you’re a risk taker…we all hope to only get married once and choosing a wedding dress/look that’s unconventional is a big risk…but you pulled it off. Taking my hat off to you girl!
