The lady doth protest too much

It’s been a month and I’m still bitter about the Wedding of the Century, where only about 60% of those who RSVP’d showed up to the reception dinner, judging from the numbers of empty tables.  The head table, on the other hand, was crowded and overflowing. Just a little insane, if you ask me. Oh, and there was a 3 hour photo shoot after the ceremony, 2 hours of which was spent freezing outdoors.

I still hate traditional weddings. My friend turned into Bridezilla. I thought the fact that she is a schoolteacher by trade meant that she would handle the planning better. She developed a martyr complex that really made me want to slap her. Having a wedding is a totally voluntary project. I do not understand the need to blindly follow tradition at the expense of your mental and financial health. When you have to borrow money from your 401k to fund what is essentially a big party, I think you’ve crossed the line to insanity.

I used to love her. Now, not so much.

    1. Yay! 😀

      I can understand getting obsessed over details, but I feel like the wedding industry really enables bridezilla behavior by selling the image of the perfect wedding and the idea that it’s the bride’s day and she should have whatever she wants… oh BARF.

  1. I agree 100%. I do not even begin to understand the whole wedding obsession.

    My best friend (who’s a librarian) got married in front of the Woodstock public library (her husband is also a librarian).

    Small. Cute. Almost NO ONE knew.

    To me, that’s ideal.
