    I Was The Victim Of A Bridezilla

    And when I make this statement I 'm not talking about temper tantrums and tiaras or declarations of "it's my day!".   Would it suprise you if I told you that the "blushing bride" was 41 at the time of the wedding?  Would it suprise you if I told you the bride was...

    Who Invited Them ? (Part 3)

    ( from my journal, June 2013) I can't believe it took me 10 years to comeback out to the harbor, and it's all because of a coupon. Yes, a coupon for the aquarium I got from my doctor's office of all places. I had gone there for a check up recently. Why he had them I do...

    The Bridesmaids' Dresses Only Come In Junior Sizes

    Simply put, I am supposed to be in a vow renewal ceremony in June. The ‘bride’ finally decided on the bridesmaids dresses. At first glance, it’s very pretty. My only problem at first was that it was twice the cost of the one she had to purchase for my actual wedding and...

    My 1st Experience As A Bridesmaid Was Less Then Joyful

    I was psyched to be a bridesmaid for my cousin's marriage, but it turned out to be a pain in the backside. I was never close to my cousin, so I didn't really expect her to really share anything and that was the case. She picked out shoes (******** heel shoes). I went along and...
