Audrina Patridge’s MAJOR Wedding Wardrobe Malfunction Almost Stopped Her from Walking Down the Aisle
OMG! This is hilarious and brutal. Audrina Patridge may have just had the tropical wedding of her dreams while getting hitched to new hubby (and daddy to her baby girl) Corey Bohan, but it turns out the ceremony DIDN’T go off without a hitch. In fact, Audrina suffered a major wardrobe malfunction that could totally happen to any bride.
Audrina explained the entire sitch on her blog, first describing the dreamy scenario, saying, “I wanted my wedding to be magical with a hint of romance and Boho glam…”
But then she reveals the MAJOR wardrobe malfunction that literally almost stopped her from walking down the aisle, partially because of that hint of romance and boho glam. Specifically: her romantic, boho train and veil.
“I was lucky enough to have my hero (AKA my dad) walk me down the aisle. I love him so much! I was fighting back tears as we made our way closer to Corey,” Audrina tells fans, then adds, “but as this was happening I could feel my train and veil catching on the wooden poles that lined the aisle, causing it to pull my head back.” OMG, no!
Though she could have frozen and refused to walk down the aisle until everything was perfect (or, ya know, BEEN STUCK), instead the bride wanted to “roll with the punches” and kept walking. “I kept moving forward with a smile on my face until it came off!!! I continued walking until some very generous friends ran up behind me to secure it back on my head. LOL.”
It’s a good thing she can have a sense of humor about the malfunction. And surely her ability to roll with the sitch and see the bright side is a good sign for Audrina and Corey’s marriage.

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
