This was somebody's FB status just now:

"just a little side note, if i see any of these tube feeding bride morons walking down the street, i am going to punch them in the face...lets see how that makes their wedding pictures look...assholes"


What IS this?

What is a "feeding tube bride"??


Related: What kind of bride were you? What kind would you like to be?




I've been a second time AND knocked up bride. I would like to be a Gold Rush Bride.

Because then you're still an unattractive fatass, but in a dress that fits?

I gotcha ;) It makes no sense to me though, since they won't be losing a significant amount of weight... just a few pounds. Save yourself $1,000 and get the damn dress altered so it fits!

mte.

but then i wondered....if they have the tube in, can they eat orally? i assume these ladies don't have the willpower to stick to 800 calories a day or they wouldn't need to get medical professionals involved. if the nose tube thing makes it impossible to eat otherwise since its sticking down your throat...then id think of it as $1500 worth of weight loss that didn't require any willpower/self control.

the newest of diet fads, it's some sort of IV-diet. i saw it on the news this morning.

i would like to be a calm and collected bride with no worries.

That seems really stupid - a waste of time and money and higher risk than necessary. They could just go on a more traditional crash diet for a few weeks if that's the only goal. Maybe that's not exactly healthy either, but living on meal replacement shakes or vegetables or something for two weeks would be cheaper, less dangerous, and less plain silly.

Still, it doesn't seem worth getting into a lather about. It's more "wtf?" than rage-worthy.

Basically, it's a bride who pays to get a feeding tube to lose weight right before the wedding. They get 800 calories a day through the tube and don't eat anything else. It's really dangerous.

I just want to be married already. I'm having a long engagement and it's really driving me crazy. I just want to be done!

I had to work with people that had feeding tubes and stuff, and fill their bags and what not, and omg that forumula stuff stinks! Some of it wasn't too bad, but the one I mostly worked with, it stank and if you spilled even a drop OMG HELL TO PAY.

I'm trying to imagine how they get the forumula stuff they use into them via the nose-tube thing. It's very funny looking in my head.

I..have no idea?

I was a Young Bride, a Still In College Bride, and a Why Are You Having Such A Short Engagement Are You Sure You're Not Pregnant Bride. (I was not pregnant!)

ETA: Oh I was also an Angry As Hell Screaming At People Bride because, even though we had called the parks department a few days before the wedding to ensure that the sprinklers would absolutely not come on at 10am on Saturday (because we were there at 10am on Thursday and they came on) and were assured that they would definitely not come on, THE FUCKING SPRINKLERS CAME ON RIGHT BEFORE MY CEREMONY STARTED >:O

Um. Anger management? Does your friend want to punch every single stupid person he walks past? If I did that my knuckles would be bleeding before I even got into work in the morning! </p>

I was a 'get the first slot at the registry office so I'm not tempted to drink before the ceremony' bride.

I've never been a bride...but when i get married i want to be the kind of bride who doesn't invite anyone to the wedding ceremony (keep it VERY intimate with just me, my husband, the officiator and gov. mandated witnesses) and instead just has a big-ass reception for other people/friends/family.

what is a gold rush bride? i tried google...but didn't exactly help.

I had no idea about this until just now.

I was a courthouse bride and will soon be probably an overly emotional bride. I am also a young bride (22)

what happens after the wedding? are they going to keep to 800 calories or scarf down food to make up for it?

Drastic diets using feeding tubes to lose a billion pounds before weddings. It was stupid.

I'll probably be alone forever.

I was pretty calm, all things considered. I was a bit anxious before hand but things went smoothly. Between the ceremony and the reception my new husband and I went to the KFC drive through because he hadn't eatten that day and it was about 3 p.m. and I had just had a bagel early in the day.

So that was fun in a wedding dress. XD

That's crazy. I gained 20lbs before my wedding (stess eating like whoa as well as everyone wanting to go out to eat all the time because I was moving) and I just changed my dress to a corset dress. XD

Happy to say, I lost the weight once I moved, though.
