Bride-to-Be Rainbeau Mars Asks Guests to Do Pre-Wedding Cleanse
3:18 pm, June 11th | by Grace Rasmus
Summer is a season of many “seasons” — avocado season, mosquito season, aloe season, overly-air-conditioned-office season, thighs-sticking-to-the-leather-seat season, etc — yet I think it’s fair to say that the two most notable are bikini season and wedding season. I’m sure that plenty of brides-to-be hit the gyms each summer in order to kill two birds with one stone: looking hot in their strapless wedding dresses and looking hot in their white bikinis while on their honeymoons. Some might even try an extreme diet in the weeks leading up to the wedding like the baby food diet or the tapeworm diet (!!?!) but hey — no judgments here. Do whatever you need to do to make yourself feel amazing on Your Big Day.
But what if it’s not your big day that you have to diet/workout for but your boyfriend’s ex-co-worker’s fiancé’s big day? What if she asked you (and all other guests) to go on a three-week cleanse leading up to her wedding — that would be a little ridiculous, right?
Well that’s exactly what celebrity “health guru” Rainbeau Mars (yes, that’s her real name) is doing. According to an email from her publicist, “Rainbeau hopes that by requesting her guests try out a vegan, and subsequently live food diet for 21 days, everyone will look and feel their best for HER big day.” Guests can look forward to “unique activities ranging from breath work classes, to yoga and horseback riding,” at the “three-day summer affair on the island paradise of Kauai.”
I mean, asking the maid-of-honor to begin a “live food diet for 21 days” would be very Bridezilla-y enough but requesting that ALL guests (including Joan Rivers and model Josie Maran) participate?! That’s absurd.
Here’s my advice for the guests: try to get a good night’s sleep before the wedding. That way you’ll look refreshed and “cleansed” and you can tell the bride you feel great, all thanks to her demands. She’ll never know that you spent the last three weeks indulging your [insert favorite animal product here] cravings. And don’t forget to BYOB, because I have a feeling the bar options might look a lot like this.
