For the Bride Who Has Everything, a 400-Pound Wedding Dress

Not too long ago, we delved into the tragicomic stagecraft of purchasing one's wedding dress, an emotional hunt that can potentially drag on for week after angsty week. But for the bride-to-be who's still spelunking through salons to no avail, great news: a "visionary artist and designer and bead sculptor" has created… » 11/24/14 1:50pm Monday 1:50pm

This Prank Should Be a Part of Every Bachelor Party

Thanks to bro folklore, movies like The Hangover, and simple observations, the association between bachelor parties and bad behavior is one that's deeply ingrained in America's cultural consciousness (yes, #notallmen, but certainly a lot of them). What we don't think of when we think of bachelor parties is prankery. » 11/18/14 4:00pm 11/18/14 4:00pm

The Exquisite Hell of Shopping for a Wedding Dress

The dress. Oh, sweet Jesus, the dress. For some brides, it's no big deal. It's just a dress. For others, it's the most important fashion moment of their lives. Either way, the process of finding your wedding gown sucks pomander balls. If your dress quest was super chill and easy, I'm happy to hear that — but this… » 11/07/14 11:00am 11/07/14 11:00am

They Didn't Really Want You at Their Destination Wedding, Anyhow.

Destination weddings are a big deal for both the hosts and the guests. For the bride and groom, it's an extra layer of coordination and a lot of crossing your fingers that things turn out okay. For the guests, it can be a serious pain in the ass, and this often makes the lucky invitees very, very mad. » 10/28/14 10:00am 10/28/14 10:00am

Oscar de la Renta Is Selling Amal Alamuddin Clooney's Dress

Less than two weeks after noted barrister Amal Clooney sported an Oscar de la Renta gown for her wedding to some actor, designer Isabelle Armstrong offered up a $7,200 lookalike. But don't let the high price tag fool you: If it's not a de la Renta, it's just a pricey knockoff. Oscar, however, wasn't going to leave you… » 10/17/14 3:00pm 10/17/14 3:00pm

Engagement Chicken: A History of Romantic Culinary Bullshit

We're just six weeks short of Thanksgiving, which means two things: First, if your Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Year plans involve air travel, book your ticket now or suffer the financial consequences.

Gone Girl’s Biggest Villain Is Marriage Itself

"We resent each other, control each other, cause each other pain." This is the nasty, white-hot core of a toxic relationship. Gone Girl is about many things: revenge, infidelity, the wounds inflicted by bad parenting, the media, an angry wife, her douchebag husband. It is also about a marriage taken to its most… » 10/06/14 4:45pm 10/06/14 4:45pm

Bride's Handmade, $30 Wedding Gown Is a Chill Situation

The wedding dress is a torture device. Not necessarily in the physical sense — unless you're sporting a Pnina Tornai piece of corsetry that promises to elegantly fuse your spleen to your gall bladder because it's your special day — but the dress can certainly be a nasty piece of psychological weaponry, particularly… » 9/23/14 2:07pm 9/23/14 2:07pm

Twitter Thinks Domestic Airlines Are the Worst (Because They Are)

United lands at the bottom of the list. The only surprise here is with myself; I've somehow resisted the urge to call Delta to ask if I can transfer my United miles/status to Delta's frequent flier program. But trying to switch your frequent flier status and miles from one domestic airline to another is like trading a… » 9/11/14 5:56pm 9/11/14 5:56pm

What Gawker Media Is Doing About Our Rape Gif Problem

On Monday, we posted an open letter to the management of Gawker Media, our parent company, regarding an ongoing problem that we here at Jezebel could no longer tolerate: horribly violent rape gifs that were consistently appearing in our comments.
