Parents Who Find 'Future Bride' Baby Onesie Offensive Really Need to Lighten Up (PHOTO)

Eye Roll 150

future bride onesieOh, for crying out loud. Why do some people have to go and make an issue out of anything and everything? This baby onesie with "Future Bride" written on the front has some parents all bent out of shape -- because they think calling their baby girl a bride is offensive.

You know, because dressing her in it is like putting some sort of stamp on her saying she's expected to be somebody's wife one day -- and nothing else (or something centered around that general theme).

Yeah, yeah, I get it. Your daughter isn't simply someone's future spouse, and she will have plenty of hopes, dreams, and goals -- and they'll certainly go beyond wearing a white dress to exchange marriage vows followed by a fancy party afterwards.

But come on -- am I really the only one out there who thinks this onesie is actually pretty darn cute? It's white. It's sparkly. And even though I don't have a little girl, I wouldn't hesitate for one second to dress her in it if I did. And no, I don't believe there is anything remotely offensive about it.

Um, is it really all that hard to believe that there are parents out there who dream about the day their baby girl walks down the aisle? It's totally natural to think about your daughter's wedding day, even from the moment she's born. It's a beautiful day that celebrates a huge milestone in her life, so what's the harm in getting a little excited about it when she's a baby?

It's not like what you dress her in when she's an infant will have any sort of impact on who she becomes later in life anyway, so what's the big deal?

Lighten up already, people. There are much better things to freak out over than a baby onesie.

Oh, and one more thing -- there must be more than a few moms and dads who agree with me, because the darn thing is currently sold out on Zulily. (Again, it's a onesie. Relax.)

Would you dress your baby girl in this onesie, or do you find it offensive?

I don't care if other people put it on their daughters.. but I certainly wouldn't put it on mine.

Marriage is a big deal. It isn't all sunshine and roses and a wife is not the only thing my daughter will be.

I get that babies can't read but to me this is just strange and twisted. I never looked at my baby and thought "ohh what a beautiful future bride she'll be." That's just odd to me.

So no. I would not put it on my daughter. It just all around seems wrong and weird.

I don't know when being a wife became a demeaning title, I am proud to be a wife! BUT being a bride is not the same thing as being a wife; when u make the commitment to another person, that is a big deal. Something that should not be taken lightly. It should be something you plan to do forever. Being a bride on the other hand, is something you only get to do once (In a perfect world). Its like being princess for a day! I would only be offended by seeing it on someone's little BOY!!!!

If people would just not buy the crap that they don't like and let others who DO like it buy it, life would be a lot simpler. You don't have to broadcast EVERYTHING you find offensive.

I don't care for it much. But then, I don't really care for the color white on small children, because I remember fighting the stains. Other than that, I don't care! Dress your kid in it. Don't. Who cares?

I think it could be cute in the proper place and time. Say your baby went with you to a friend's wedding shower or something. It'd be a novelty.

It's just not something that should be thought about at that age.

It's adorable and perfect for a bridal shower outfit or a rehearsal dinner. Plus it would make a really cute picture I can see it with a white tutu and a tiny bouquet... then save it for her wedding day. What harm would ever come from such a thing? It's a baby onesie not a life plan.

I personally wouldn't buy it, but whatever floats your boat. Though I also wouldn't mind if one if my sons wanted to be a bride either.

Oh for Christ's sake, be offended by poverty, by racism, by disease, by natural disasters. People are offended by this stupid onesie? I wouldn't put it on my daughter, but there's nothing offensive about it. If you don't like it, don't put it on your kid. But find something real to be offended by.

Oh gimme a break, its supposed to be for fun. Lighten UP people.

I don't think it's offensive.  If someone wants to put it on their baby, I'm intelligent enough to know that the child isn't going to live her whole life around someday being a bride.

People need to 1) lighten up and, 2) mind their own business.
