My sis and I absolutely love planning weddings. We still squeal when the bride walks down the aisle, we still cry when they say their vows and we always dance at least once during the reception. (Hey, it's our party and we'll dance if we want to...)
We are noticing a funny and frightening trend, however....
Our clients and family like to share intimate secrets with us. Perhaps it is because we help plan such a special day, perhaps it is the hundreds of phone calls and e-mails we exchange during the planning...who knows? It's probably because we're sisters, and everyone knows that you can tell a sister anything.
Here, in no particular order, are our favorite confessions thus far...
*Mother of the Bride: "Now, Sara, I've been with a lot of men. I mean, A LOT of men, but my daughter is a virgin today!"
*Father of the Bride: "I've been married 3 times already. I think my next marriage is going to work now that I know what I'm doing. Are you single? What's your number?"
*Bride: "I think my bridesmaid just had sex in the bathroom."
*Bride: "My fiance' is really into alcohol- it's a big deal. No, we don't want premarital counseling in our wedding package"
*Bride: "My wedding day is all a girl gets in her life, so it's gotta be perfect."
*Bride: "It took me forever to get my fiancee' to marry me. I need to plan this wedding fast!"
*Bridesmaid: "Ummm...the bride has been drinking shots of Crown all night and she's puking outside."
Their confessions make me do this:
But, I admit, I have one, too: I usually eat 3 pieces of leftover wedding cake to get through the night. Just keeping it real.
