These are a few of our favorite things: An Offbeat Bride's Christmas carol #Features#christmas December 24 2013 | Guest post by AmandaTheGreat Here's an Offbeat Bride-ified version of "My Favorite Things." Let's all sing this offbeat carol together… Having 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!
