I’ve never been a bridesmaid before this past weekend. In fact, I realized pretty late in the process that my entire knowledge of most mainstream, traditional, Christian weddings (and most other things) is from movies.
Q. I have found a lovely partner, and we’re very happy. However, we have very different view points on an issue that’s bound to pop up: love. He has had partners in the past, some for a year or longer, and has never said the words “I love you” to anyone but his family.
I knew about this wedding since last year, but because my luck with finding a romantic kind of date has had a 0% success rate, I had no doubt in my mind about who my plus one would be. I knew that it had to be my best friend. I asked her before the invites […]
I am at that age. The one at which everyone you know is getting married. Right now, I’m attending at least two or three weddings every year, and I’m LOSING MY MIND. There are some things that need to stop very, very soon.
Just an FYI: There is a mention of clothing sizes in this piece.
This week’s ladyblogs made me say, “I frakking love the Internet!”
It’s been a couple months since my last post here on my new status as a “widow.” The horrid “W” word that no one in love or marriage actually wants to think about.
Double episode tonight! Everything’s going to be wrapped up! Probably. So, Bryan and David are working on planning their wedding, one which I’m sure is strictly ceremonial since it’s still not legal for gay couples in California to marry.

Maybe I sound like an idealist, but I don’t understand why we have to be so mean.
Is your friend getting married? Were you all excited until you heard the words “Destination” and “Wedding” put together like the drums in the deep? Fool of Took! One does not simply walk into a reasonably-priced wedding scenario.
Since I went and got myself engaged, I’m finding that all anyone these days wants to talk about is how to have a low-budget, recession-friendly wedding. Dresses made of repurposed newspaper and such.
I first came on to this awesome site as DIY Bride, sharing projects and stories about my wedding with our fantastic readers. With wedding season upon us and Pinterest use in full force, I feel surrounded by all things wedding, and let me tell you folks, there is some awesome stuff out there.
Part Two, in which “simple” becomes quite complicated Cindy showed me a sarong style wedding dress she liked; a nicely made, two-piece garment from white charmeuse with orange trim that seemed really affordable. “Why are you not just ordering this?” I asked. “I don’t like how it comes up at the waist and shows stomach,” […]
Part One, in which a friend asks a favor. “I need you to sew my wedding dress,” my friend, Cindy, said during a break at a work conference recently. I nearly spat my coffee out laughing. “No!” “Why not?” “One, my skills aren’t wedding dress appropriate,” I said. “Two, you’re a demanding bitch and impossible […]
