Social media, mainly IG ruined weddings. Everything is all about appearances, who has the cutest balloons that say "same dick for life", who has the cutest tablescapes, who is taking the best vacation for their bachelorette parties? It is a lot to put on the wedding party. Who yes, love you and want to celebrate their loved one, but to expect that everyone has the means, or tbh wants to dedicate an entire year of their lives to your wedding festivities that are really only for "The Gram", it's a lot. And I'm over it.
I love love, and I love weddings. But I think a lot of people lose sight of what its all about and are focused on "likes".
I am vey untraditional when it comes to a lot in life, I am someone who considers myself very open-minded. But when it comes to weddings, I find myself so... Traditional. Meaning, if I were to get married and some girl showed up in white, I'd be upset. I think your "first look" should be when you see each other at the aisle. I think men should be in black tuxes, not navy with brown shoes which everyone seems to be doing. I am finding myself feeling more opinionated on this than I ever thought I would be. And I want to know if I'm alone in this, or if you have any weddings do/don'ts that bother you!
I'm in a wedding this summer and the color pallet is the exact same as a wedding I was in last summer. I really want to rewear the bridesmaid dress because.. I don't want to buy another one. Duh.
The two brides don't know each other at all. Two completely different friendship circles. Am I in the clear to rewear the dress? Or is there some kind of wedding etiquette that I don't know about that says I can't wear the same dress.
I know so many people that choose some country song as their first dance, that is laced with misogyny and a creep-factor to the nth degree, and we're all just watching like, "AWWWWW." I know for a fact the couple doesn't even listen to country, they just googled "first dance songs" and found one that talked about never-ending love. Not me.
What's the most unique first dance song you've seen?
Bacon wrapped dates. Really classy people will do Bacon wrapped goat-cheese stuffed dates. But I'm not picky.
What's the best wedding app? Do not say Mac & Cheese bites, those are always dry. And don't say Chicken Satay Skewer. No one wants to hold a little wooden stick for the rest of the cocktail hour.
It was more common long ago and is still very common in other cultures. I’m blessed in the fact that I am not pressured by my mom to be in a relationship much less marry someone.
But I always think about what if I was one of those people whose partner has already been chosen for them.. would I go along with it or would I run away and dishonor my family.
could you do an arranged marriage?
Any moment that I'm not eating passed hors d'oeuvres at a wedding, I'm on the dance floor. I love it. I love the predictable stream of hits that the DJ or band will play.
But. I will literally run away from the dance floor when "Don't Stop Believin'" comes on. I will never forgive Glee for forcing that song back into our lives.
What about you?
I don’t have a lot of my own mottos. But one of them is ‘I’ll sign everything but a prenup.’
This is absolutely only if I marry someone who makes more money than me.
But anyways what do you think about prenups? I’m nosy. If you’re married do you have one? What does it say? Do you trust your lawyer? Would you take half of your partners earnings and assets? Have you?
Ok, so I have a bridal shower and the bride is registered at very limited places, two of them are way out of my price range and the other one most of her registry is already bought.
So, what are good gift ideas if you decide to not go with something on the registry?! I NEED HELP
