This is the time of year that I would normally be writing columns and creating gift guides for Wedding Week here on DW. Well, I don’t feel like making it a big thing this year. —-Some of you are now popping open the champagne and screaming, “Hells yeah, bitches!” but, before you get too carried away, I’d like to dedicate this single post to all things wedding-related. Think of this as a condensed version of Wedding Week, where we can discuss wedding trauma and drama and joy and fun. (You can still pop the champagne though.)
Are you currently planning a wedding? Feel free to vent your stress here. Are you in a wedding coming up? Let’s hear about how the bridesmaid or mother-of-the-bride is driving you nuts. Invited to a wedding where you’re likely to run into an ex you don’t want to see? We’ll talk you through it. Still reeling over never receiving a thank you card for the $200 gift you gave your brother when he got married two years ago? Feel free to bitch. Still paying off the wedding you had back in 2012 for the marriage that ended last year? Oh, girl. Still angry about that wedding you went to where there weren’t enough chairs for the guests (oh, the shame!)? What about wedding gifts? What were the favorite ones you received or the best ones you gave? If you could do your wedding over, what would you change (maybe the groom…?) and what would you keep the same?
Week Day on DW. Go!
(And if this post looks familiar to you [I’m looking at you, Kate, with your freakish memory about everything ever published on this site!], it’s because I posted the same one last year. I figure, every year brings new wedding drama, right? Plus, Jackson’s on spring break this week, so I’ve got my hands a little fuller than usual and I hope you’ll forgive a wee bit of cheating on my part, publishing the same post twice.)
