Five Local Wedding Trends We Secretly Love

Even a heinous, unlovable spinster like Jennifer Aniston can find a man to overlook her obvious flaws and help shape her into a complete human being again. Thus last weekend's collective sigh of relief at the report of Aniston and beau Justin Theroux's impending nuptials, which detonated a virtual arms race with the contentiously procreative Jolie-Pitts.

But poor Aniston needs our help. And Dallas knows a thing or two about throwing an elegant hitchin.' We just love these totally outrageous local wedding trends, and since Aniston clearly needs all the help she can get, here are some of our favorites.

5. Begrudgingly allowing your man to choose at least one thing. Becoming resigned to the fact that the above photo is what you're going to get.

4. Wearing cowboy boots with your dress because it's so totally cute and unexpected, and no one else is that quirky!

3. Serving barbecue as an homage to your down-to-earth roots. (Actually, for real. Who doesn't want to eat some barbecue? The British Guy suggests Pecan Lodge.)

1. Getting married before you're 23. Oops. Sorry, Jen. Bless your heart.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
