Well, June is apparently bride month on TV. Especially the Style Network.
So I've pretty much watched every episode of Whose Wedding is it Anyways ever created. As I'm someone who generally thinks of the Big Day as that Tuesday in November, it was quite informative. And I learned some valuable lessons for planning my own wedding.
- If anyone uses the words "princess," "diva," or "bling" in my presence, I will shoot first and ask questions later.
- I don't care who considers this a tradition, there is no way my fiance is sticking his hands up my dress in front of 180 people
- Color coordinated tie backs make me gag.
- The "theme" of my wedding will be "I'm getting married"
- Fondant. Yecch.
On the slightly less misanthropic side of things, here are some other details I gleaned:
- Every girl looks beautiful when she pops out in her wedding dress, and her mother will cry.
- The tasting is clearly the most fun part of the entire planning process, if only because it will be the only thing my fiance gets excited about.
- Lighting is KEY. Apparently. Everyone tells me this.
- Mani-pedi is a necessity so at least I'll be forced to make time in my schedule before the Big Day.
- Wait a second, people give you gifts? Awesome.
For those of you who've done this before (or several times before, I don't judge!) let me in on a key secret to a successful wedding plan. Besides first getting lithotripsy and hoarding the Vicodin.
P.S. Also totally excited by niche beauty market like this Bridal Palette from Bobbi Brown....
