These are a few of our favorite things: An Offbeat Bride's Christmas carol

December 24 | Guest post by AmandaTheGreat

Here's an Offbeat Bride-ified version of "My Favorite Things." Let's all sing this offbeat carol together…

Offbeat Bride favorite thingsHaving no roses, instead lots of kale,
Small TARDIS favors and seats of haybales,
Bright Converse sneakers all tied up with strings,
These are a few of the tackiest things!

No pastel fondant, but crisp apple strudels,
A ringbearer who's our beloved pet poodle,
No garter to toss, nor a bouquet to fling,
These are a few of the tackiest things!

Bridesmaids in suits, and the brides who wear glasses,
Bright-colored makeup with rainbow eyelashes,
Potluck for dinner and non-matching rings,
These are a few of the tackiest things!

When my mom nags,
When The Knot whines,
When I'm feeling sad,
I simply remember I'm on Offbeat Bride
And then I don't feel so bad!


Happy Holidays from all of us at Offbeat Bride — anyone want to mash-up a carol?

  1. I love your little song! The time put into crafting it and linking it up was not wasted on me. Very funny 🙂

  2. Wonderful! This helps us get through those awkward convos with extended family: "You're doing WHAT?"

  3. Love this. But most importantly, where can I find those pink cat eye glasses?!
