    I'm A Good Friend, So I'm The Maid Of Honor....kill Me Now

    How do you help out your best friend who is getting married, if she has a crazy friend that got engaged 8 hours prior to my friend, and their weddings are a month apart?  My friend is freaking out because she can afford the wedding of her dreams, but her other friends are...

    Weddings Bring Out The Worst In People...

    When I was a bride-to-be I slowly became totally self-centred, expecting everyone to magically 'know' they needed to lavish me with hen-do surprises, massive gifts etc. I even said out loud that it was my AIM to have a 'better' wedding than a married friend. I was a total fool...

    There, I said it. I don't hate the idea,

    I just don't see what the big deal is. This is mainly because people these days are too selfish to make marriage work. What, then, are we celebrating, exactly? Anyone can get married. Staying married is an achievement. If you can put up with the same person for the rest of your...

    What If?

    Weddings are great but I can't help but feel depressed. Forever will I just be invited to weddings and never having a wedding of my own I often think of it. I'm still a teenager and enjoying my life and all. In a few years, I will be an adult and I'm not sure if I'll be able to...

    So Stressful!

    I've been a brides maid twice (maid of honor once) and I'm NEVER doing it again (unless it's for my kid sister.... in which case I'll grit my teeth and bare it)!  It costs waaaaaay too much money and I'm stuck with ugly dresses that have already served they're only purpose...

    I So Hate Going To Weddings

    I'm So Bitter.

    My wedding turned out to be a disaster due to my crazy mother-in-law. We went through so much stress with her that we just decided to cancel everything and have a tiny private affair, no guests, no wedding party. My bridesmaids already bought their dresses, which were very cute...

    And never was the kind of girl

    who dreamed of a white dress or the boring reception. I never wanted to spend thousands of dollars or be a spectacle for those to stare at. In fact, when my sister asked me to be her maid if honor in her wedding, I was almost going to decline. I ended up going ahead with it, but...

    My sister is getting married tomorrow

    and the whole thing has been a royal pain in my ***. My sister was raised by her father (we are half sisters) and she was given every luxury in life. She has always had the nicest clothes, got her hair and nails done all the time, got a car bought for her, hung out with all the...

    I Once Was a Wedding Planner

    Not Even Good For Free Food

    Since I have no friends I will only ever go to family weddings. I had to attend my cousins very recently, yesterday. There are many reasons to hate weddings. I think the main one is that everyone and their ******* mom pulled out there cameras and were taking pictures. So...

    My neighbour's son got married last week, and my sister dragged me along. And the whole experience pissed me off. For one thing, I couldn’t even remember what the groom-to-be actually looked like [aside from one startled memory of him opening the door wearing nothing but a...
