Because it is freshly 2008, and because we at Bridezilla.com feel we didn’t get a chance to sufficiently mock things in 2007, we are doing a Top Ten Weird Weddings of 2007 feature. We will be counting down to number one over the next week, so stay tuned!
Here is our pick for number ten, Bridezilla Tina Boaz-Murray. High-five for hyphenation, but such pinniped passion is really a little out of the ordinary, we must say. We’re all for getting a little Adam and Eve-style on the Big Day (wink) but there are no giant slobbery sea creatures in Bridezilla’s particular brand of Paradise.
Unfortunately Mrs. Boaz-Murray begs to differ. The misguided bride cites the zoo as a perfect wedding venue, saying, “So many of our guests, said that the wedding ambience was so romantic – fairytale.” We must be reading different fairy tales, because in the Bridezilla version, you kiss the slimy creature before you get the handsome prince, not after!
But after all, it’s their wedding, so they should really be able to do whatever they want, right? Before you answer too quickly, note the Houston Zoo’s chilling reception details. Lush rainforest, cascading waterfalls, built-in bar? Check! A chance of blood-sucking bat sightings along with your bellini? Likely. Receptions takes place in the Natural Encounters building, where entertainment consists of “the antics of many nocturnal animal species that dwell inside the building.” Pass!
