    I now Pronounce you: Stressed.

    So you're engaged to your partner, ready to spend the rest of your life together, and you're about to plan a wedding. My advice? Don't. Save yourself the hassle, and elope. Run while you still can from the most expensive, exhausting, weirdly altruistic social traditions our culture has to offer, and go on a nice trip with your new partner or save for a house or a dog or a child or a Master's degree. Your wedding isn't what's left at the end of the day. It's just you and your partner and a couple memories. I promise you it's time, money, and energy better spent somewhere else. Let me explain by giving you a run down of my wedding day.

    An Unpopular Opinion From A Married Teenager.

    An Unpopular Opinion From A Married Teenager.

    I got married at 18. We spontaneously decided to get married in one week. After our family got over the shock of us getting married soon, they became supportive. In seven days we had to do what people with popular opinions do within a year (or more) when they plan weddings. The ceremony, honeymoon, gown and suit, photographer, wedding bands, makeup artist and flowers.

    Weddings: the most overrated, obligated, and forceful rite of passage of them all.

    Weddings: the most overrated, obligated, and forceful rite of passage of them all.

    At some point in our lives, most of us, if not all, have had to endure attending a wedding. Perhaps it was for a close friend, a family member, or even your own wedding. Maybe you were even part of the court as a bridesmaid or groomsman. Personally, I've had to endure all of the above. My siblings are both married and I was part of their courts. I've attended numerous family weddings throughout my life. My best friends have also gotten married. I was in their courts as well. It is as if weddings are as inevitable as puberty and losing your baby teeth, and equally as unfavorable.

    My Terrible, No Good, Very Bad Wedding

    My Terrible, No Good, Very Bad Wedding

    Wedding season is upon us. Pinterest is pinging. Registries are ringing. Seamstresses are... seaming. You see where I'm going with this. Myself, I'm helping plan my best friend in the whole wide world's wedding for June 2020, and my vow renewal for September 2020. It got me thinking about my wedding nine years ago. When we plan out weddings, we all want everything to go off perfectly, and we kill ourselves creating a perfect day. Not everything always ends up perfect, though. In the case of my wedding, only one thing actually went according to plan: I married my husband. Sit down, I'll tell you all about it.

    I Let My Fiancé Plan My Bachelorette Party and It Wasn’t a Total Disaster

    I Let My Fiancé Plan My Bachelorette Party and It Wasn’t a Total Disaster

    I do trust my fiancé—I suppose that’s obvious, since I’m marrying him. However, I was very hesitant when he volunteered to plan my bachelorette party. It’s the type of pre-wedding celebration that is almost always handled by a bridesmaid. It is a girl’s night, after all.

    Bridal Jumpsuits: Why Brides are Making the Switch

    Bridal Jumpsuits: Why Brides are Making the Switch

    Did you know that the tradition of wearing a white wedding dress came from Queen Victoria in 1840? The queen stepped out of her carriage wearing a beautiful white silk-spun dress accented with lace to marry Prince Albert thus starting the trend of the white wedding dress. Society is constantly evolving and today we are seeing brides step away from the norm and walk down the aisle in not the traditional wedding gown, but a jumpsuit.

    Having Cold Feet Is Normal

    Hey everyone—have you ever had a life transition that was so big, but felt like it was drawing itself out so much, you thought it would never end—this is where I am right now. I know that my life is at the brink of new beginnings with getting married in the next few weeks—insert transitions and big changes. My life is already starting to change with doing big girl things like looking into houses to purchase, and taking my career seriously, amongst other things. It has been a crazy but very rewarding season of transition, because I have learned so much. I know that my “singleness” season will be permanently over soon, and it kind of freaks me out and excites me at the same time.
