Pet Peeve: Mustache Anything And Dress Up Photo Booths At Weddings


I'm sorry but what is the fascination with mustaches?  They are all over blogs, Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest.  Everyone is bragging about how they are adding in dress up photo booths with mustaches at weddings and otherwise fancy events.

And y'all...I don't get it!

It's tacky.  It's dumb.  It's childish.  It's weird.  And it's not cute.

Is there some sort of hidden meaning that I've not been privy to?  Is there a story behind the trend?  Why is it the latest and greatest?  Why would anyone think it's cute or cool?

Picture it (channeling my best Sophia when saying that of course).  Your wedding.  You're dress is stunning...and it better be...you paid thousands of dollars for it.  Your hair is perfection...and it better be...you spent months obsessing.  Your venue is more than you imagined...and it better be....your wedding coordinator who charges an arm and a leg has had her team there for the last 48 hours straight.

And then you go and eff that up with a stupid mustache and purple feather boa photo.

For an 8th grade dance, OK, I could see this being fun.  For a wedding...oh hell to the no!  Tricks are for kids.  And mustaches....most men can't even pull them off so I don't at all understand that fascination.


If you post wedding photos that include a tacky dress up photo booth, please know that in my head, I am questioning your sanity and taste level.

Don't muck up your perfect day with a dress up box.  What's wrong with looking beautiful all day?  When did that become so last year?

Just say no to dress up photo booths, my friends!  Just.  Say.  No.

Ohhhh yeah! I loooooooooooooooove this post! Might be my favorite crocodile post yet! Can't wait to see what the reaction is. As you know, I am firmly in the tacky camp!

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU. It is so tacky and stupid. I don't understand it and hate it. You are 100% right in your rant and this pet peeve is one I agree with.

Completely agree.

hate the mustache trend, I don't get it at all and they are everywhere. ugh.

amanda said...

Yes. 100%

You want to talk about regret? I've seen actual people with mustaches tattooed on their fingers. You know, so if you hold it up to your lip it looks like you have one? Because that'll never get old, so why not ink it into your skin FOREVER.

I'm with you K, I don't get it either! Hopefully it is a fad on it's way out.

Hahaha... I don't get the photo booth thing either. But more so because EVERYONE does it now. This is my peeve with wedding trends in general. And yeah I don't really get the mustache craze either!

LOL! If I didn't live in Jacksonville FL where the owner of the Jaguars has the stereotypical mustache in offense I would be totally on board with this post too! Instead I will walk away in shame with my press-on mustache for game day fun. Until the next fad begins!

Hey, Thanks for stopping by my blog for the May Monthly Challenge. I'm also looking forward to seeing what everyone else comes up with - and having just read this post I can see I won't be disappointed. I feel like if I see another mustache on anything my head might fall off.
