Some brides go for elegance on their big day, and some choose to leave no doubt for their friends and family that the wedding crazies have got to them. Enter UGG's new bridal shoes. Three flavors are out and they are just what you'd expect: It's like mammoths came back from extinction and immediately swallowed a pre-school's entire glitter cabinet. The sparkly numbers would make a great gag gift, but for the fact that it'll cost you between $190 and $225 to be hilarious. Price (and that ubiquitous UGG claims of comfort) withstanding, mothers of the bride everywhere are fainting in fear. [Jezebel]
