    Here comes a bride, surgically refined By Brigid Delaney January 31, 2004

    Welcome to the contemporary wedding. Sydney brides are taking their inspiration from Hollywood, not
    tradition, say organisers of a bridal exhibition at the Sydney Entertainment Centre this weekend.

    This inspiration includes bridal gowns that are sleek and revealing in colours ranging from hot pink
    to platinum, and creating a body that can look good in these gowns.

    "Because girls are getting married older, they are more body aware," said Diane Lewis, a bridal
    designer whose dresses feature in the exhibition.

    "They are not trying to dress up like vestal virgins."

    "They will get a personal trainer and some will have plastic surgery. They change the colour of
    their hair and their body shape," she said.

    "Gone are the days of just having a facial before the wedding."

    Our fixation with celebrities is partly to blame.

    "Brides come in with pictures they saw of dresses at the Golden Globes or Academy Awards. Their
    wedding day is the closest they are going to be to a celebrity because they are the star of the day.
    There is enormous pressure to look perfect."

    The exhibition organiser, Glenn Findlay, agrees.

    "Weddings have changed dramatically in the last four or five years. There is a decline in all the
    trimmings, but a huge emphasis on the wedding dress and personal grooming.

    "You do hear it quite often that brides will have cosmetic surgery before a wedding.

    "If somebody was going to have surgery it would be before their wedding - because that's the day the
    focus is on them and there is pressure to look really perfect."

    Sydney's climate and an increase in outdoor weddings were also driving the trend towards sleeker,
    revealing dresses, Ms Lewis said.

    Given that older brides are paying for their own wedding, there is no need to please mum and dad.

    "Brides are buying the dress for themselves - not something they think their parents will like," Mr
    Findlay said.

    "They are also inviting fewer guests but putting on expensive wine and good quality food."

    Gee whiz, Ilena, just because you'd look like hell in such a dress, do you have to rain on everyone
    else's parade?

    LOL ... yes, according to Team Barrett ... I am the ugliest, oldest, fattest, stupidest, most bought
    off poster on Usenet ...

    Exactly why I created these webpages:

    www.humanticsfoundation.com/disinfoagentsfaq.htm

    My concern was young women getting breast implants ... at minimum signing up for a lifetime of
    surgery ... very possibly with no health insurance available to them ... and unknown potential
    dangers to their offspring.

    Thanks tho Davey ... for illustrating how little you know about me ... yet how dedicated you are to
    bashing me ... the more Barrett & Grell lose to me ... the more desperate you flacks are in your
    impotent campaign against me.

    Hmmmm..... a "plunging gold sheath" that showcases the bride's breasts (natural or implants) &
    abdomen -- modeled to an AC/DC song...... it just doesn't shout "long term commitment", does it?

    Based on the pictures I've seen of you, you're not fat, you're not that old. I know of no evidence
    that you're "bought off", whatever that's supposed to mean in this context. And you're certainly not
    the stupidest poster on Usenet, though you are certainly one of the most self-righteous.

    But you'd still look like hell in that dress.

    >Thanks tho Davey ... for illustrating how little you know about me ...

    Quite a bit about you, actually. You put yourself and your crusades and your bizarre feuds on
    display all the time. Let's remember that you're the one with a web page about me, not the other
    way around.

    Oh, I think you're being terribly judgemental.

    It doesn't shout "good taste," though.
