checklist is here so that you know you're not alone. The bride that
doesn't go through at least half of this stuff is the "weirdo".
Print this list, tack it up in your room somewhere and see if you
can be the "all time champ" and check off every single
item. Whatever you don't see here, add it to your list, and don't
forget to send it to us. Also keep it in a safe place to hand down
to your daughter.
get down on one knee.
just handed me the box without putting the ring on my finger.
damn ring didn't fit.
given me the ring, but can't commit to a wedding day.
got the ring and I hate it, but I don't want to hurt his feelings,
so I'll just grin and bare it, all the while I'm hoping to get mugged.
"Oh, Honey, look he took my beautiful ring."
don't we argue about: a traditional wedding, a victorian wedding,
a modern wedding or why not throw our nationality into the mix.
two of us want a small wedding. Our parents want to invite every
single person they've ever met.
go along with the bigger wedding. We're not happy about it, but
get a grip who ever said it was our day anyway. Time to look for
a quaint location. OH NO, "No child of mine is going to get
married in a place like this. We're going to get you the best hall
the city has to offer".
do me a favour, pull my mother-in-law to be out of my ass!
both of a different faith. I don't care about this but both sets
of parents want the ceremony in their own faith.
want to get married in a church but I don't attend regularly, so
I keep getting turned down. I'm starting to get the "elope"
church is coming up with a list of rules and regulations a mile
long. Can't do this, can't do that. That'll cost you extra.
to top it all off we've got those wedding classes to attend.
on the bright side, so far I haven't had anything to do.
it is right now our parents have managed to spend anywhere between
$6,000 to $10,000.
still have to pay for a: florist, DJ, limo, invitations, hair, make-up,
favours, photography, videography, decorations and wedding attire.
Gifts for each other, your wedding party and your parents. Don't
forget the little extras and our future. I know I'm really thinking
about eloping now. Just chill, follow the Frugal Bride planners
and checklists and they'll walk me through it nicey, nice.
my nerves in check because here comes the shower I didn't want.
So make sure I register, that way when I open my gifts I'll know
that at least I like them.
The dreaded seating plan. Many tears have been shed over this one.
to seat divorced parents and feuding relatives.
there's that uncle that breaks out into song after a couple of drinks.
Geez, what will the in-laws think.
credit card is maxed and there's still so much to do.
in my bridal party went and got herself pregnant. The nerve of some
2 weeks before the wedding and my dress isn't ready yet. Oh! God
when will this all end.
not putting one cent into that rehearsal dinner, that's his responsibility.
"What do you mean you don't have any money left either. Well
ask your parents for it, they're the ones who wanted the big fancy
that's it, someone definitely has to pull my mother-in-law to be
out of my ass AGAIN! Gonna commit murder!!!!!!
didn't realize we needed a permit to take a couple of lousy pictures.
that photographer tells me to tilt my head one more time, I'm gonna
it hot in here or is it just me?"
checked in with the reception site to confirm the final tally of
guests and because I didn't read the small print, now they tell
me that the price of our menu has gone up because of some hurricane
in Florida six months ago.
us, when we say, we could go on, but we want to leave something
to your imagination.
one will get you the "Grand Prize". You wake up the morning
of the wedding, walk over to the mirror and take a final look at
the single you. You give yourself a little smile. You're so happy
and proud of all the work you've put into this day. You're relieved
to know that if you and your fiance can live through the wedding
planning, you can live through anything. This is going to be THE
BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE. You stroll to the bathroom with your head
held high and close the door. OH SHIT!!! I got my period!!!!!!!!!
