Naked grooms #WTF!? Updated Sep 26 2019 (Posted Aug 9 2007) Ariel arielmstallings Oh, how I wish naked grooms were an emerging wedding trend. Instead, it's just a ridiculous photo from a wedding dress catalog, sort of the reverse of a chick in a bikini trying to sell a car. "Buy one overpriced wedding dress, get one toned naked cabana boy for free!" Ariel Author of three editions of the Offbeat Bride book and the forthcoming From Shitshow To Afterglow, Ariel Meadow Stallings acts as the publisher of all the Offbeat Empire websites. She lives in Seattle with her son, and if she's not reading or writing books, chances are good that she's dancing or happy-crying. She writes weekly essays for her new publication, The Afterglow.

Somehow this doesn't make me feel any better than the Pamela Anderson types in g-strings straddling motorcycles. I know I'm supposed to feel, er, elevated or 'taken seriously' or something, but it just doesn't happen. Reply Ariel, I was just waiting for you to get ahold of those adds. They definitely made me go "huh?" Thanks for bringing a little bit of light hearted nakedness into my life :)!! Reply That is awesome!! I need to start filling my closet with dresses! 😉 Reply Oh, I don't know… I'm thinking perhaps our photographer will go for a pose like this. Now, I just have to convince the groom ;o) Reply I can't help it, all I can think when I look at that is – he's going to ruin the back of that dress! LOL…. Reply Ha ha, this is hilarious! Reply I noticed those too … "Hey, look! This dress comes with a free gigolo!" Reply Soooo…if I buy one of those dresses….I get a naked cabana boy? Hmm. I must rethink my rockabilly theme…. Reply Do you think he's actually ATTACHED to the back of the dress? I bet it makes wearing pretty difficult. And probably pretty painful for him! Reply The only way my groom would be naked is if I was too. We would think it was hilarious and some of the guests would too! The other guests, screw them!! It's my wedding!
