Sometimes you can't blame the dress on the era...it really comes down to the taste of the bride and if she really likes you or just needs you. Tema was upgraded in a wedding once from 0 to 100. She became Maid of Honor after the bride's cousin refused to wear pink as the bride had requested and turned up instead in orange.
The UGLY goes hand -in -hand with the bad in this case. As Diana says she "looked like a giant Crayola Crayon" and not even a pretty one at that.
