When I first got engaged, I made the fatal error of registering online for a bridal show. I entered my address and phone number. Mistake!
Very quickly, I found myself inundated with phone calls and junk mail. I ignored the phone calls. I threw away most of the junk mail. This one, though, I saved long enough to photograph it. This one warranted a blog post.
It’s an advertisement for plastic surgery. Now, I’m guessing that for brides, they’re trying to drag people in for chemical peels and perhaps botox…but even at that, ew. It just feeds into our beauty-and-youth-obsessed culture. “It’s your wedding, you want to look beautiful, right?” Because I couldn’t possibly be beautiful without some sort of chemical enhancement.
Does anyone else find this kind of thing offensive, or is it just me?
