weddings
I'm not getting married but EVERYONE ELSE IS I GUESS so here's some pretty dresses and stuff.
bridesmaids
I posted an ad on Craigslist, offering up my services to a bride-to-be as a professional bridesmaid -– hoping to use some of my skills and bridesmaid knowledge to help other brides.

Whether you're the bride or a bridesmaid, you deserve to be happy with how you look on such a big day.

The feeling in the courthouse was of generosity, selfless love. I've never wanted to hug so many strangers.
instagram
Just like Facebook, Instagram is too large and pervasive of a world to truly quit.

Weddings aren't always about delicious cake and releasing white doves to the tune of "You Look Wonderful Tonight," especially when your job requires you to think about your failed marriage on a regular basis.

I feel like not sending any acknowledgement of their marriage will be rude. Do I rise above the snub?

Now that I’m in the thick of planning the big wedding part, I can see why people intentionally elope.

I speak quietly to the anthropomorphic blob of pain I'm so happy to have quelled for the moment: "Please please please just behave. At least until next Saturday."

Ten dos and don'ts for the bride and the bridal party. Plus: how to look fly in pics!

She asked me how much weight I wanted to lose before the ceremony, because I'd need to start getting fitted for a dress soon.
ex boyfriends
I crashed my ex-boyfriend's wedding. I swear it wasn't on purpose.

I unsubscribed to The Knot's wedding planner app when it alerted me that I had not "started a fitness routine to get in shape for the wedding."

It's getting crazy out there. SPECIAL BONUS!! Other random things that can be bothersome when attending other people's weddings (especially as a single lady).

We had a falling out years ago, but is it ok to have her at my wedding after we reconciled?

We had to do a lot of it ourselves, but in the end, there was no doubt that the wedding was ours -- customized to the last detail.

I had to restrain myself from getting into a full-on white trash wedding salon brawl.

I’d rather duck and roll from the moving vehicle then face another person expecting me to giggle and gush over the details.
marriage
I've been married to my husband for 11 years, and I'm currently planning a wedding to my boyfriend, too. Yes, we're polyamorous. No, we're not freaks.
weddings
In a hazy series of, “Is this a nightmare romantic comedy of my mind’s own creation?" vignettes, at least a dozen distant relatives, paesans, aunts, uncles, godfathers and grandparents came up to me, all delivering some version of the line, “You’re next, right?”
weddings
Learn from my mistakes, and be calmer, more graceful, and better prepared than I ever was.
