The first book I wrote was The Bride Price which was a romantic book, but my husband burnt the book when he saw it. I was the typical African woman, I'd done this privately, I wanted him to look at it, approve it and he said he wouldn't read it.
I do not have a bride gene. I haven't been planning a wedding since I was 3. I never put a sheet on my head and pretended that it was a veil.
I was like any new bride, who said, 'I'm going to cook for my man.' In fact, once I started a small kitchen fire in a pan. Smoke was pouring from the pan, and I got really scared. Right next to our stove is a small fire extinguisher. You know, easy access.
A young bride can put on makeup at 6 in the morning and look fabulous at midnight. I have about a 15-minute window where I actually look good, and then I have to wash my face and start over.
I am recognized a lot for 'Clueless,' but I am recognized a great deal for 'The Princess Bride.' I don't know... maybe everybody who has seen that movie just goes out on the street.
As I grew up and began identifying myself as a feminist, there were plenty of issues that continued to make me question marriage: the father 'giving' the bride away, women taking their husband's last name, the white dress, the vows promising to 'obey' the groom. And that only covers the wedding.
I want to be a simple bride when I get married. I want a beach wedding where I am running around on the sand in a white dress.
I go out of my way to try not to be too annoying... my biggest goal in life is to not be annoying about being a bride.
It was the noise Of ancient trees falling while all was still Before the storm, in the long interval Between the gathering clouds and that light breeze Which Germans call the Wind's bride.
Charles Godfrey Leland
I'm not the perfect bride after all.
The Pirate is surrealism and so, in a curious way, is Father of the Bride.
The more traditional bride still prefers white or ivory, but the young girls... seem to like the idea of using colors.
I kind of love going to weddings - it's a guilty pleasure. I've never been the wedding-y type girl dreaming about the big day, the dress, but I always cry. Always. Even if I don't know the bride that well, I'm verklempt!
I don't care how handsome or fabulous or funny the groom is, or how sweet and accommodating the bride, or vice versa. Marriage is hard.
'The Princess Bride' was a movie that I watched all the time.
I'm a teen-age bride.
'The Princess Bride' is one of my favorite movies of all time.
No one has put in harder training to become a royal bride than the glossy-haired Kate Middleton.
As far as film goes, I enjoy all Hollywood films and all Horror films like The Bride of Frankenstein, which also might be my favorite. I like 60's and 70's Italian and Spanish Horror films.
To be in something as iconic as a Dracula film, and to be playing Jessica van Helsing, who would have been Dracula's choice for a bride, through history and beyond the grave, was a thrill.
As a kid, I wasn't sure that I would ever get married - I was not the kind of little girl who played at being a bride.
Frankly, 'Bride Wars' got made because movies with women need to be about weddings and love.
'The Princess Bride' is by far the most popular film I've ever done. I don't think I'll ever top it.
I've made movies that nobody saw initially, and then, all the sudden, people over the years pick up on it. Like 'Spinal Tap' and 'Princess Bride.'
