I kinda can’t believe that I even have to write about this, but there is a disturbing new trend in fucking wedding la la land that is really bothering me. This message is for you, bridey… Tell your family that they don’t belong at your engagement! Tell them to stop. Right now. Because it is not appropriate for them to be there the MOMENT you get engaged. Literally. The moment. ‘Cause when your man builds up the courage to ask for your hand in marriage, it should not turn into an open forum for your family to take over

Remember the phrase “don’t shit where you eat”? I know I am being vulgar right now, but it’s the only way I can think of that will get my point across. How about this… Don’t hire your friends or family to perform a service for your wedding. Don’t have your soon to be brother-in-law photograph your wedding. Don’t have your best friend who enjoys baking make your wedding cake. And don’t have your cousin disc jockey. You know why? Because they will fuck it up…
Don’t knock it. Several years ago, I met a “bridal therapist”. I walked away from her thinking that SHE was the nutcase. I thought that the whole idea was a giant hoax to make a few bucks from “the industry”. Turns out, she might have been on to something. This goes way beyond being a total bitch bride. This delves deeper into what happens from the moment you become engaged. You see, outside of the obvious stressors of planning a wedding that are enough to land you on the couch (budget, time management, etc.), there are the hidden pieces to the psyche, and not just yours.
