A Note Regarding Mustaches on Sticks

Now I'm not drinking Haterade, but I have to speak out against something that has really been frosting my cookies recently - fake mustaches on sticks (aka "Smitten Sticks").

Over the past few months, I've been helping a friend plan her wedding and reading a ton of wedding blogs to get inspiration. It seems like every other wedding post includes something I once thought was cute, but now dread... mustaches on sticks.

Seriously, ladies... why cover your beautiful wedding makeup with that silly nonsense? I just don't get it. I don't lack whimsy, but I find this trend just flat out silly.

What's next? Unibrow on a stick? Monocles on a stick? At least those would be something different and truly ridiculous to the point of funny!



we do have other expressions....and why not get a little silly on your big day. no harm done ;)

I agree...
its a fun and simple idea. Liven everyone up so the wedding isnt so stiff for some. Having a picture with a "mustache on a stick" isnt ruining pictures or hiding makeup, its obviously not permanent, just fun.
