All That Glitters Is Not Always Gold

From the Desk of "Goldilocks"... Bride AND Vendor:

I’ve peeked behind the curtain and…. Hum, I was really really disappointed.  To what am I referring to you ask?  In the bridal world, especially on the East coast, there is one spot that is a hands down wedding institution, a place that is a bridal rite of passage for dress shopping: I would say the name, but I don’t want to get in trouble with the ringmaster, so please use your imagination. For now, I will refer to it as “The Institution”.

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.
