It’s Spring and lots of people are getting married. But its not even so much the season, as the time in my life (late twenties) when I’ve noticed more and more of my friends and my husband’s friends getting hitched. Which is great, but its kinda hard on the wallet. We’re going to Vancouver in the summer for a wedding, followed by another wedding in the Fall and another friend of mine who was my maid-of-honor and has since moved to England wants me to come to her wedding in January.
Tough to do when your spouse is still in school and you are in lowly admin support. But, we’ll see how it goes.:)
Does anyone watch “Rich Bride, Poor Bride?” I don’t really watch it very often anymore, but last night they had a bride who was such a rotten, spoiled, selfish little biatch that during a temper tantrum, punched a hole in her bathroom wall with a hammer! There are a few of these babies on this show, which while it ups the sick “entertainment” factor, makes me wonder how the hell they managed to land a husband. Then again, their husbands are usually blockheads, who just nod and laugh while their monstrous fiancées aggressively dismiss their ideas and constantly repeat: “But I’m a princess and I deserve it all!” (gag me!)
Planning a wedding can be stressful, but never did I act that way. Honestly, the only time I felt my blood pressure rise planning my wedding, was when certain, select individuals and vendors around me were acting badly. (And trust me, these kinds of events can bring out the worst in people and you really find out who your true friends are)
But, I tried to stay calm and never performed random acts of destruction. In fact, I was probably too calm and easygoing and let others do and say whatever, because I didn’t want to come off as one of these bitches. But now I know, there is a way to be assertive without crossing the bridge into crazy town. LOL.
My wedding could have been a more elaborate affair and things did go wrong, but even though it wasn’t perfect, it was special and our venue beautiful. And I’m grateful.
