Botox and Bridesmaids

Seeing how Kottke and BoingBoing referenced this NYT story, I’m disappointed in myself that it took a coworker to point it out to me. It’s awful/awesome. Some brides are gifting Botox treatments for their bridesmaids. Some are demanding them — and other procedures. The Dallas-relevant graph:

Two weeks ago, Health Travel Guides, a medical tourism company, exhibited at the Dallas Bridal Show for the first time. “We received 30 requests for quotes among the bridal show attendees – mostly for plastic surgery such as liposuction and breast augmentation,” said Sandra Miller, the company’s chief marketing officer. “But also many for cosmetic dentistry and inquiries for providing quotes for bachelorette getaways that will feature beauty treatments.”

Is it any surprise such a story would have at least one Dallas tie? That’s a rhetorical question, though I’m sure commenters won’t treat it as one.

    So far, it appears that they are.

    No.

    Dreher jumped on this like his wife’s hen on a June bug.

    Rod’s big advantage over the likes of Hagee and Copeland is they are on a Sunday only news cycle.
