    INT. WEDDING HALL ON MICHELLE KWAN'S WEDDING DAY

    Michelle has just made her entrance -- and she is absolutely radiant and stunningly beautiful, almost angelic, in her Vera Wang wedding gown.

    BEAVER: Jeepers, Wally, Michelle is even purtier than Miss Landers!

    WALLY: Gosh, Beav, why does my face feel so hot all of a sudden?

    WARD (Mesmerized by Michelle's beauty): Oh, my word! I've never seen such a beautiful woman in all my born days! Why, compared to her, June-bug, you look like a sack of lumpy potatoes.

    JUNE (Staring daggers at Ward, steam rising from her pearl necklace): WHAT...DID...YOU...SAY?

    WARD: I, uhh, I was just saying, dear, that your lovely potatoes last night were scrumptious!

    BEAVER: Gee, Wally, I think Dad's in big trouble.

    WALLY: Boy, Dad, you sure put your foot in it this time.

    INT. HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM, ONE HOUR LATER

    Doctor is studying Ward Cleaver's x-rays.

    DOCTOR: My goodness -- worst broken nose I've ever seen.

    RickInSanJose, maybe like me you must have recently been watching back-to-back episodes of Leave It to Beaver! I recently finished viewing Season 3 on DVD, and it has been entertainingly nostalgic and feel good hilarious at times. I never got to see the revamped 1980s show, but I'd like to after I finish viewing all the season episodes from the original 1957 - 1963 series.

    Perhaps viewing the shows back-to-back has made you come up with your "wedding" plot. Because of course there doesn't seem to be any notable connection between the Kween and the Beav, outside of family values and family togetherness. The dialogue in your imagined episode is priceless and spot-on! However, June's character on the show, while written up in the manner of a perfect Mom, well-dressed with every hair in place, her dialogue also tended to make her appear to be clueless and not too bright about some things. She was portrayed as the perfect homemaker, but she didn't really seem to have a life or a brain of her own without her husband and kids. Of course all the scripts were written by men. ;)

    In any case, all that to say I don't think any of those old scripts would have ended up with Ward in the hospital with a broken nose at the hands of good old sweet innocent June Cleaver. However, that may be your point: a more updated script centered around the mesmerizing shock and awe impact of Michelle Kwan's beauty. :D I can almost see your write-up as a cartoon strip. :lol:

    Now, how about another MK wedding scenario with dialogue involving Condoleeza, Shep Goldberg, Evan Lysacek, Vera Wang, the Clintons, and the Obamas (just to name a few possible guests, though probably the Obamas and Clintons wouldn't want to crash the festivities -- ya know Secret Service detail and all!) ;)

    I have the feeling that Michelle's wedding will be a modest, intimate affair with only her family and closest friends in attendance. I just don't see her staging a humongous garish "Wedding of the Year," filled with A-List celebrities and politicians, with paparazzi helicopters flying overhead with telephoto lenses trained on the proceedings. Michelle just doesn't strike me as the kind of person who would go in for some ostentatious affair. In fact, it wouldn't surprise me if we learn of Michelle's wedding date only after the wedding has already taken place.

    If the Cleavers happen to be invited, Ward would be 102, June 97, Wally 67, and the Beaver 64, so I don't think they'd cause much of a disturbance.

    You have to be rather tall to pull this particular silhouette off effectively, which Michelle is not. I recall seeing her in a similarly structured dress and not really liking it. I think a simpler, even more body conscious silhouette would suit her more but I love all the draping on the bodice!

    Here's MK in a mermaid gown: http://img2.bdbphotos.com/images/orig/a/j/ajutj8lwde45tu85.jpg Not her best, she looks very short in it.

    The VW Kirsten would only exaggerate the effect but being so pouffy in the mermaid tail area, making her look wider, rather than taller.

    Yes, she hit it out of the park with the soft, romantic mermaid, not even close to the pouffy OTT Kirsten dress. Kudos to VW and MK!
