I've said it before and I'll say it again -- I'm not a "wedding-y" kind of gal. I say to hell with tradition. Out with the banquet hall, in with the quirky barn! Off with the long gown, on with the tea-length dress! Goodbye to stuffy sit-down, hello to the casual buffet! However, there is one thing -- one teensy, weensy thing -- that irks me to no end when I see brides doing it at weddings. That thing is drinking beer.
Put the bottle down, girls (and if you must, at least use a glass). It's so ... trashy. Weddings are not beer kind of places. Bars are beer kind of places. Barbecues are beer kind of places. The office is a beer kind of place -- wait, what? No, seriously, weddings are a time for wine, a time for champagne, a time for all things drank out of a sleek, pretty glass.
And apparently Prince William and Kate Middleton agree, because the royal couple just banned beer from their wedding! Rejoice!
Despite the rush of delight that came over my body when learning this info, I have to admit, I'm a little surprised. After all, William and Kate seem to have thrown tradition out the window when it's come to everything else about their wedding. Hell, Kate's mulling over doing her own makeup! Why are they trying to get all fancy on us now? According to a source:
Let's face it, it isn't really an appropriate drink to be serving in the Queen's presence at such an occasion. It was always their intention to give their guests a sophisticated experience and they have chosen the food and drink with this in mind.
Yes, guys! Agreed! I gotta say, so far, everything you're doing with this whole wedding thing, I'm really feeling. And classy move ditching the beer.
The couple also plans on taking it one step further. They intend on staying sober the entire night (famous last words) in order to savior -- or savour -- their special day. Interesante, guys. Hmm ... do I smell another wedding trend here? Dry weddings, perhaps? God, how awful would that be? (Imagine going to wedding after wedding this summer where all they served was soda and water? Pass!) However, I do think it's a smart idea not to get drunk at your own wedding, kids. Didn't necessarily do it myself, but I still think it's a good idea. I think seeing either one of you with a lampshade over your head at the royal event is something that would displease the Queen a lot more than beer.
What do you think of these two crazy kids not serving beer at their wedding?
