I Thee Dread

Remember when Tracie and Anna attended the New York magazine Wedding Showcase and marveled at all the expensive shit? Well! It was clearly like visiting a landfill compared to the Wedding Salon, a "luxury" wedding showcase held Monday here in New York. For the $75 entrance fee, aspirationally-budgeted brides could meet vendors who put couples' pictures on M&Ms or create martini bars made entirely out of ice. Want the "entry-level" wedding offered by Sarah Jessica Parker's wedding planner Thomas Noel? That'll set you back $75,000. Want to go all the way? No problem: Your fantasy princess wedding will be dutifully arranged by him for a cool $10 million. "If you can afford it, you do it," says Noel. No thanks. [NYT]
