    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...

    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...

    What I Love/Hate About Weddings

    The other day I was talking with a friend and somehow the conversation evolved into one about the things we love and hate about weddings. We laughed so hard we ended up rolling on the floor and in tears! But it gave me the idea to start a "sub" experience under my bridezilla...
