I had to restrain myself from getting into a full-on white trash wedding salon brawl.
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.
ex boyfriends
I crashed my ex-boyfriend's wedding. I swear it wasn't on purpose.
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.
The Wedding Industrial Complex is an insidious machine that can creep into all your thoughts and turn even the most well intended bride into a little ‘zilla.
I’d rather duck and roll from the moving vehicle then face another person expecting me to giggle and gush over the details.
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.
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).
I want to hug you in your white dress and dance with your relatives and potentially make out with a groomsman. Really, I do.
When I wandered into a Brooklyn thrift shop and saw this sweet brocade dress marked down to $27.99, when I tried it on and teared up as the zipper closed perfectly, I knew it was my wedding dress.
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?”
Or else I'm just a huge weirdo. OH, NO, WHAT IF I'M BOTH?
Do my nuptials even count if I look like I'm capable of lifting a champagne glass or cake knife with one noodle-like arm?

What's funny is, instead of writing my "Thank You" cards, I'm writing something ABOUT not writing "Thank You" cards.
I polled some recently married friends for feedback on the most beloved wedding gifts they received that weren’t on their registries, and the feedback was enlightening.
Unless you’ve been some sort of reclusive misanthrope for the better part of your young adulthood, you’re going to wake up on your 28th birthday neck-deep in wedding invitations.

I'm not sure why I was shocked, let alone hurt, when a girl I had known for 28 years tried to sabotage my wedding. It was right in line with all the other messed up things she had done to me over the years.
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."
a ring is not a marriage
A wedding ring doesn't make a commitment real. It's a symbol. But a symbol can't take the place of the thing itself.
It sounded too good to be true, and I know how these things end. But I’m a sucker for a bargain -- and a bit of a gambler.

bridal gowns
My first experience trying on wedding gowns may have put me off the whole thing forever. Help me pick a dress online?

He came with me to the dress shop and picked it out himself, even though he hadn't proposed. I'm not sure why I ever wanted him to.
