From Someone Who Knows

Found this hilarious take (rant?) on a blog I frequent (HealthyAshley) - Her name happens to be Ashley too, but she's on the opposite end of the country in Florida.

Had to post it because I just so identify.... Her list of things a bride should be ready for :

1. ) Yes, having a vagina automatically makes you responsible for all 250 “to-do’s” on The Knot’s wedding checklist.
2..) Have a guest list? Most of the people you want there won’t be able to make it. People with names you’ve never heard of will start to pop up instead.
3..) Expect your groom to say things like “just tell me when and where and I’ll show up.” Refrain from punching him in the face.
4..) Also refrain from punching people who tell you to just “keep it simple” to cut costs. Even “simple” weddings cost a crazy sum.
5..) Be prepared to field phone calls from your family for your wedding being vegan, being held at a farm and for recommending guests refrain from heels. Heaven forbid.
6..) Sometimes you will look forward to the day you quit being a wedding planner more than you look forward to being a wife.
7..) If you didn’t curse before planning, be prepared to start now. Also, be prepared to start drinking.
8..) Expect guilt trips about money from people you never asked anything from. Feel really bad about it.
9.) You may have debt after the wedding, but at least you’ll have fancy wine glasses from your registry!
10.) Glossy wedding magazines are just about as good as photo-shopped celebrity magazines for your self-esteem."

Thank goodness for kindred spirits in this crazy process.
