Bhutan Dish: Bhutan, about the size of Iowa and with a population roughly equal to El Paso, Texas, is a place where there are zero stoplights, only three dentists and where TV appeared in 1999. I sure hope they DON'T get "The Real Housewives" but maybe "Project Runway"! Bhutan is known as "The Happiest Place on Earth" (I guess, besides Disneyland) and in fact, every two years, it conducts a Gross National Happiness Survey (yep, you read right), trying to see how happy its people are. That's not to say, it's all lovely in the tiny Himalayan Kingdom. The country has high rates of alcoholism, and 70 percent of women in the country say it's OK for their husbands to hit them if they burn dinner. Uh...OK, I guess, it's NOT 2011 yet in Bhutan.
The Bride Wore: Like I stated above, the bride did not wear Alexander McQueen but a local garment called a Kira, which took three years to weave. It is an ankle-length dress consisting of a rectangular piece of woven fabric, wrapped and folded around the body which is pinned at both shoulders, usually with silver brooches, and bound at the waist with a long belt. The kira is usually worn with a long-sleeved blouse inside and a short jacket or toego. The King crowned her with a multicolored brocade crown , officially making her his Queen.The country will celebrate the Royal Wedding of their beloved King the rest of the week and through the weekend. I hope that means one thing for the new Queen: OUTFIT CHANGES!!!! Congratulations to the "Happiest Bride and Groom on Earth", or at least in the Himalayas.
