OH SO YOU THOUGHT I WAS DONE WITH WEDDING TALK? NO MA’AM.  I have a head cold that just won’t quit and stress and  fatigue just in general,  but what I also have is  THIS MOMENT WHEN I HID IN AN OFFICE WITH MY BRIDESMAIDS BEFORE WALKING UP THE AISLE, SIPPING TEQUILA AND SHOVING PEANUT M&Ms AND GOLDFISH CRACKERS INTO MY FACE AND I NEVER FELT SO BEAUTIFUL.

The train

October 26th, 2016 by Bekah Brunstetter

Oh, did you want content UNRELATED to the beautiful weekend / life experience I just had? Feel free to check back in approximately one year once I’ve come back down. I have every intention of slowly trotting out memories and moments here so that I continue to fully remember every moment of it. It’s still kind of a blur, even though apparently, I’ve been informed that the moonshine at the reception in fact made me stomp around shouting to people, I FEEL SO PRESENT! And so today, on the Wedding, the train of my dress — pictured here with my Grandma’s mink:

It was long. Like epic long. When I got the dress I knew it was slightly impractical, being that the ceremony was in the grass under a tree, and that the reception was in a horse stable. But I loved its fairy queen-ness AND its impracticality. But after the I do’s and pictures, the best feeling ever was just LETTING THE THING GO AND DRAG THROUGH THE DIRT.

There is something amazing about getting very dressed up and then letting it all go.  It felt so freeing. The release of tension, literal and figurative.

Plausible Scenarios

August 13th, 2016 by Bekah Brunstetter

THIS JUST IN, I OFFICIALLY HAVE A WEDDING DRESS! It arrived in NYC from Hungary, and is now en route to LA, which means it’s now time for my worryholder, read: my brain,  to start concocting absurd scenarios re: what might happen to it. A few favorites:

- it will get lost (basic.)

- a dress thief which is a thing will steal it.

- (obviously) the plane carrying the dress will crash into a house. Or just a car. Maybe a car next to a house.

- Someone who hates me has been lying in wait for years trying to figure out a way to get back at me for something I did to hurt them that I don’t even remember. They select this as that moment. They intercept my dress, cover it with dirt, and start the dress its own instagram, in which they take the dress all over the world, sullying it, never quite showing me where it is.

- IT NEVER ARRIVES / I HAVE DREAMT THE WHOLE THING

- MY WHOLE LIFE HAS BEEN A DREAM

- I WAKE UP IN THE MATRIX

- I PULL THE CORDS FROM MY HEAD, ASK TO SEE MY WEDDING DRESS

- I AM TOLD THERE IS NO LONGER NO SUCH THING AS DRESSES

everything is real

July 12th, 2016 by Bekah Brunstetter

One of my favorite things about the internet: if you dream it, it is there, no matter how absurd. Example: the other day at work, I doodled a wedding dress covered in donuts, like you do. IS DONUT WEDDING DRESS REAL, YOU ASK?

WHY WOULD IT NOT BE? Technically, donut HOLE dress. But still. IF YOU DREAM IT, THERE IS A WOMAN SOMEWHERE MOST LIKELY IN EASTERN EUROPE OR THE SOUTHERN UNITED STATES CRAZY ENOUGH TO DO IT.

I wore it best.

September 20th, 2015 by Bekah Brunstetter

Lots of glamour and innovation at the Emmy’s today, folks, as Hollywood’s finest hit the red carpet in their sunday best / cleavage. Lets go live to Bekah Brunstetter’s iPhoto booth!

YOW! Bekah  is sporting a balletish mini dress by Kimchi Blue for Urban Outfitters, which she had a real crisis about purchasing as she wasn’t sure if she was too old to enter an Urban Outfitters. Via this dress Brunstetter travels back in time / pretends that she did ballet as a child / was / is graceful and small.  Brunstetter is sporting freshly washed, still wet hair, bare lips, birkenstocks,  and remnants of last night’s eyeliner. When asked how she felt today, she said “wait Is this the one that’s for TV or the one that’s for movies or the one that’s for both?” She then found a popcorn kernel stuck in her bra.

SECRET PAJAMAS.

April 28th, 2015 by Bekah Brunstetter

I am always on the hunt for dresses that are  so comfortable it’s like you’re pretty much still asleep. I have found a near perfect one.  It’s basically a giant soft black shirt featuring nothing but a massive pocket on the front, perfect size pocket for phone or small pet.  It expertly hides your dough parts,  but it’s also sort of sleek because it’s black, and so it’s  elegant in a lazy sort of way, and it’s long in the back, and so work appropriate. Basically, when you get home you just kick off your shoes, hit the hay, then wake up, repeat, and probably wash it sometimes. GET YOURS HERE! I WON’T BE WEIRD AT ALL WHEN WE’RE BOTH WEARING IT!

HERE YOU GO!

April 2nd, 2015 by Bekah Brunstetter

I’m not even playing with y’all. No hyperbole here.  When I do not blog, my mom wonders if I am dead. I am not Dead, ma mere! Just a busy day at work. In lieu of something mildly insightful, CHECK OUT THIS APPLE! I have finally selected my dress for Easter.

EARS NON OPTIONAL.

there’s a dress for that

July 12th, 2014 by Bekah Brunstetter

I’m meeting a bunch of TV writer gals for pancakes n dresses today, and joked that we should all wear pancake dresses, which of course sent me directly to the internets to find one, and of course, HERE IT IS:

There is every kind of dress. It is delightful. Every kind*. Volcano dress:

Squid dress:

And of course, hamburger dress:

Personally, I am comforted and charmed by the fact that no matter what the thing, there is a girl out there looney tunes enough to procure the fabric with the thing,  and make and wear the dress.

* I exaggerate. Googled and not found: knife dress, ham dress, dress dress, sword dress. LADIES, COME ON.
