    Are you wearing a veil or getting Botox??? Crazy questions we get!

    Yes, a fellow bride actually asked me this! We were both in our mid 40's and both of us getting married for the first time. Chatting about our respective wedding plans, she asked me this question! After laughing histerically ....I replied that I did not realize that these were options for me! A few weeks after my wedding, I attended hers. She looked amazing! Uh, no, I did not do either! Too funny!

    What crazy questions or comments have you received?

    I so don't get the Botox thing. So many actresses who've admitted to getting it done just seem so flat and expressionless. Seems like it would be a mistake in the long run.

    Congrats on getting married, by the way, and good for you for going natural!

    So in other words, she put on a fake face, for her wedding.

    I guess if you want to say that but wearing makeup is "fake" too isnt it? We both wore makeup as do most brides. She just took care of her "smoker" brow. I just giggled at her question to me...I could use some Botox now....ten years later! LOL! But I HATE needles.

    Congrats on your wedding, some people are too rude. I bet she just wanted to brag about her botox.
    she's also probably the quilt police.

    I have, after 40 years of marriage, been asked why I married HIM!! Whoa! That just floored me...so this year visiting in my hometown I was ready. Another person (they are always males who ask...so clueless) asked if I was still with...uhm...HIM. I pointed to my husband and said, "Well, yes, you know it's all about hormones. Those hormones just talk to each other." The guy left before I said anymore. It was hysterical. It was at a church function which made it even better! So, yes, weird questions abound!

    hmm....shooting botulisium toxin into my face to give myself paralisis......NOT !
    I hail those actresses (Diane Keaton being one off the top of my head) who choose to age gracefully.
    I recall her saying in an interview once......."I preferr to age authenticaly".......me too.

    Sybil Shepard is another actress who hasn't had any work done on her face and I admire her for it. A few years ago an actress was on tv...I forget now who it was but my dh said "she didn't age well". I said she has it's just that she is aging naturally without "work" done on her face. I could see a light bulb went on in his head and he said you are right! Robert Redford is another one that has no work done and it shows. But you never near anyone knocking him because he is aging "naturally".


    A pet peeve of mine is the magazine ads for mascara...how the actress have FAKE eye lashes on. Some look like they are wearing the brush from the mascara on their eyes!! Do they think we are stupid?? I watched on HBO recently a show about older models. A few of them said they actually have less work now since the "stars" are now on all the magazine covers and rarely a model. That was interesting.

    I've never worn make-up. And there is no way I'd sit still for Botox.yuk. A former SIL said and I quote 'oh you would look sooo pretty if you would wear make-up. She left me speechless but not my DSH he promptly told her that I was the most beautifully real and the prettiest woman he's ever known. I wear the face I was born with -I've earned every wrinkle-laugh line and crows toe I have. No camouflage for me.

    Not related to weddings, but after we had our daughter, who has two older brothers, someone I barely knew said to me, "Well you've had your girl - now you can quit." Where do people get off?

    A neighbour of ours who is almost 80 needs to have occasional botox injections to relax her vocal cords so she can talk. What she is dealing with is spasmodic dysphonia. It works for her and she's been having them for a few years. Without them, she can't say anything. So not all botox is just for "beauty".

    I can hardly make myself go to the dermatologist for the things I need, I could never let someone poke me with needles just to look younger.

    I admire Jamie Lee Curtis, too, because she's let her hair go gray & the whole nine. Bully for her! Ditto Roseanne Barr. These chicks who had their faces pulled so tight that they can't even close their eyes -- do they think that's attractive? I think it's gross!

    The mascara ads make me mad, too. And how about that new medicine you can take to make your eyelashes thicker? Are we that vain anymore? That stuff has all kinds of dire warnings connected to it. Isn't that what mascara is for to begin with? Crazy!

    When I first moved here to WI, I was asked if my engagement/wedding ring was real (it was), if my breats were real (they are). how much I weighed (about 100 pounds) & how much my husband made (i had no idea). What happened to manners? I would never DREAM to asking ANYBODY that stuff... not even my best friend!

    I have a friend who has Botox injections for her migraines & she says they're a life-saver. But that's a whole different deal.

    Hey, come on... most brides are practically unrecognizable on their wedding day. They should be when you figure what so many spend (or Daddy spends) on their wedding.

    I saw a show where the brides are getting major plastic surgery prior to the wedding. Liposuction too! I guess having the pictures perfect is a priority. I feel sorry for the groom who may not recognize his bride

    Thanks for the posts about the real uses of Botox besides vanity. The vocal chords was ....an eye opener.

    My bride-friend used botox for her furrowed brow. It did not change the shape of her face. she wore a chiffon, flowing Vera Wang gown....she looked stunning! Her social circle is in a higher income bracket than mine, LOL! It was a nice wedding.

    OK, how about the one of the women I worked with meeting my daughter (college age at the time) and saying, to me in front of her, "Wow, you have such a beautiful daughter!!!!" and then with a glance at me, "She looks nothing like YOU." Without missing a beat I said, "She takes after her father." Since she'd met my husband, and while he might be called a good looking man he is NOT beautiful, she said "oh." and let it drop. She also wasn't aware that my daughters' beloved "Daddy" is a step father.

    I don't get the whole botox thing or the whole makeup thing. God made us au natural and thats how I intend to stay. I always feel weird when my friends put makeup on me when we go out. I think they think it makes them more beautiful, but they are beautiful without it and don't need it so why do they spend 3 hours to look almost the same. Its the same with high heels. Why do they spend hours in pain messing up their feet and backs permanently. I just don't get it. Thats the problem with today. its why high schoolers and younger think they need botox and boob jobs, and all sorts of surgery to look a certain way. No one can just be happy with themselves

    Sounds like you took care of her. How snarky of that gal! I'm sure that she "was" a beauty herself! Good grief!

    I'll go along with Jamie Lee Curtis, but Roseanne Barr has had at least one face-lift. She has just outlasted the facelift. lol Eventually gravity takes over again.
