“First things first, marry someone funny. No, wait. Marry someone who thinks YOU’RE funny, especially when you’re really, really trying to be. There’s nothing worse than teeing up a really great joke and having a person who ALLEGEDLY loves you give you nothing by a polite chuckle when you were aiming for a guffaw.”
– “It’s Okay to Laugh (Crying Is Cool Too)”, Nora McInerny
We’re a wedding website. Not like regular wedding websites, we’re a cool wedding website. We answer questions like:
“Do I really have to sip out of a penis straw at my bachelorette party?” (No)
“Is it okay that I didn’t have an emotional reaction when I bought my wedding dress?” (Yes)
“How am I supposed to handle being the center of attention at my bridal shower? Because I REALLYYYY hate being the center of attention…. (Okay, so maybe we’re not that cool).
We also talk about normal things like wedding registries, and venue questions, and “planning a wedding on a budget” – because you can’t really have a wedding, or a wedding website, without talking about “the budget”. This is the first question that every vendor will ask – “What’s your budget?” We’re here to help you make a realistic one…. a really realistic one, not the one that you’ve decided you can have if you eat Ramen for every single meal and cancel your Netflix subscription.
SO… YOU’RE A WEDDING PLANNING SERVICE?
Not really, Don’t get us wrong! That would be cool and we would LOVE to plan your wedding – but, uh, we’ve just got a lot going on right now and… frankly, we didn’t really even enjoy planning our own weddings that much. Sorry.
Instead we’re here to offer real advice from people who have been there. Consider this a safe space for every bride who has ever thought (6 months into planning after you’ve already put down deposits): “Maybe we should just get married at city hall….?” (Hey, Carrie Bradshaw did it!)
Get married at city hall, don’t get married at city hall – whatever you do, just make sure that you are 1) happy, and 2) marrying the love of your life. If you can confidently say that you are BOTH of those things at the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter if you get married in a cave – you’re going to be fine.
SO, UH….WHAT ABOUT….
