wedding racism

so i was in the bookstore the other day looking at wedding magazines. yeah, i know. but i was trying to get started with planning our wedding and i figured i might find some ideas there.
and a sure did.
apparently it's fashionable to have an "ethnic-theme" to your wedding. i guess appropriating cultural heritage is a theme?
as i flipped through the pages i was first struck by the above advertisement for bridesmaid dresses - i'm not exactly sure what the feather/painted stick decorations have to do with the robins egg blue dress, but i suppose they match.
as i continued to open magazines it became clear that i'd need to be taking photo evidence for the blog (sorry for the shitty glare).

there's the japanese-theme, complete with kimonos, parasols,

and no, none of them are japanese.

neither are they.

and i'm pretty sure these ladies aren't indian.
