The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ A Lesson About Friendship to All of You Brideys

Brideys, I'm going to get straight to the point because this shit is important. It's so super important because if you don't have friends after you say, "I do" then who will you bitch to about your husband when the wedding euphoria wears off? Right? I mean basically, bridey, I really want you have friends when your wedding is over. I also think it's kinda important that you still like your friends when your wedding is over too. I mean, it is a two-way street. So, I thought I'd share a few ways to keep AND like your friends leading up to, and following your nuptials. 

1. Don't be an entitled bridey bitch. Yes, it's your day, but everybody is there to celebrate with you so make sure you that when the day finally arrives that they do in fact want to celebrate with you. In other words, don't fuck it up all the way to the altar and then expect your friends to be excited to be part of your wedding. 

2. Brideys-to-be... Going to a wedding like every other fucking weekend? Yeah, then outside of being exhausted and over it, you're obviously at the stage in your life in which you'll probably be in several weddings too. That said, may I make a suggestion? It's very simple actually. Don't be an asshole.

The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ The Bridal Party Breakup

It's the truth hurts Tuesday brideys! And boy do I have a story for you! The best part of this story (actually, more like the worst)? It happened to me. And looking back, I definitely should have and could have handled it better, but frankly I feel like I never should have been in this situation in the first place. Actually, that's why I am choosing to share this story with you so that if you are in a similar position as a bride-to-be, you won't do what this bride did. I mean, she completely put me on the spot and forced a reaction from me that was kind, but not truthful. Any idea where I am going with this brideys?

Here's a hint... Don't ask a very new friend (new as in you've known her for about two months) to be your MAID OF HONOR! It's a hell of an honor and a huge responsibility, so if you don't know somebody well enough, then you might not realize just how much you are asking of them. Instead of the honor that it should be, it may feel more like entrapment to your friend

Save Yourselves! Get Out Now!

Did you think I was lying? Did you think I didn’t know? Seriously, like I haven’t seen and experienced SEVERAL brides behaving like complete diva bitches when it gets to be their turn? C’mon… The day “The Reasons Why You Cannot Be a Bridesmaid” appeared on Gawker, BB received piles and piles of emails from our followers asking what I thought about the content. And not to sound like a complete asshole,

California Girls We're Undeniable

Yeah, I will never, ever be in another wedding, ever again.

I had a friend, who lived in NY. I'm a Cali girl myself, but we got along so great that I thought we really did share similar views on life. When she asked me to be in her wedding in NY, I was actually excited.

I learned quickly... 50+ emails a day between all the bridesmaids. EVERY DAY. For TWO YEARS. If a bridesmaid didn't respond quickly enough to the bride's taste, guess who was asked to step in? That's right, me. Because I was the furthest one away, so the bride figured I wouldn't care if the other bridesmaids didn't like me.
