To say that marriage is an emotional experience would be a colossal understatement. You’re basically devoting the rest of your life to another person in the hopes of building an incredible life with them.
It’s a huge step and one that’s usually celebrated with an epic party. And when you’re planning for your wedding celebration, you have to make sure everything is perfect. People go on crash diets and get all dolled up. When figuring out the ins and outs of the wedding, couples usually learn a lot about each other, specifically how they react to stressful situations.
Sometimes it can be a bit much, so letting out some steam becomes necessary.
Like this bride did when she trolled her groom-to-be by wearing a T-Rex costume for his “first look” at the bride.
“First Looks” usually happen when the couples get all glammed up for each other in their wedding regalia and then take photos to memorialize the beautiful moment when these two people realized the other has never looked so hot in their entire lives.
“He told me the bride was thinking of doing a first look… in a T-rex costume. I knew we had to encourage this thought, and so, we did exactly that. This couple was so fun as you can tell, and it definitely was a dream wedding to shoot,” videographer Jon Murray said in an interview with Fstoppers.
First looks are usually a lot less hilarious and more sappy, in case you were wondering.
Basically me whenever I get home and see the dude at Taco Bell put in an extra crunchwrap supreme without charging me.
Halloween is the holiday when couples can shine — they get to rub everyone else’s singledom in their faces and flex those creativity muscles with cute and punny couple costumes! And, let’s be honest, the best couple costumes tend to be sexually suggestive in some way.
…But usually, X-rated couple costumes are relegated to college parties and bars. That’s why everyone is loving 22-year-old Brooke Bogin’s parents’ Halloween costume.
The 22-year-old senior at James Madison University tweeted the following photo of her parents, complete with an explanation for their costume:
Mom and Dad before their Halloween party. He’s a dill pickle. She’s a female deer. Together they’re a “dill-doe.” And also my heroes. pic.twitter.com/4BMqGU5eNu
That’s right, her middle-aged parents were a “dill-doe.”
“This is one of the first years they are ’empty nesters’ so they have a lot more time to devote to fun things like this party they went to,” Bogin told BuzzFeed. “I always joke that they have more of a social life than I do!”
Obviously, she had to reward her parents’ creativity with a Twitter shoutout.
“I thought the idea was hilarious and I was really proud that they are my parents and doing something so witty, so I just wanted to share it with my friends,” she said. “I’ve always tweeted funny things that happen with my family and my parents always joke, ‘You’ve got to tweet that’ when something funny happens.”
As it turns out, the rest of Twitter was also pretty proud of her parents — the photo was retweeted over 20,000 times.
@b_bogin I wish I could hear the conversation where they came up with this.
