Did you know there is an entire section on Pinterest dedicated to “Wedding Nails?” There’s even a section called “Engaged Nails.” I searched for “Girlfriend Nails,” but I couldn’t find much so someone should probably get on that.
This past weekend I read a bridal magazine for the first time in my life. I’ve honestly never even opened one before- that is until Sunday. It was… interesting. Who knew there could be so many styles of wedding dresses? I’m not sure if it’s because I’ve been blogging too long and have surrounded myself with the Mormon culture, but I was continually drawn to the most modest dresses. Long sleeves? Yes please! High neckline? You betcha. I would call my wedding style at this point “1930s grandma meets lace.”
The magazine also gave me “857 stylish ideas + creative details” you know, for the other stuff that goes into a wedding beside just a dress. That’s about 854 too many for me.
I got overwhelmed with the magazine so I decided to get back on Pinterest.
Terrible idea. Pinterest is just one giant bridal magazine. I clicked on one post called “Things You Should Know Before Your Wedding That NO ONE Tells You.” Holy shit, I thought. This is probably full of wonderful secret info, good thing I found it now. Let’s look at some of the most useful tips:
1. Wedding dresses can get hot.
What? No way! I would have never guessed this one, especially with the fully covered dresses I seem to like. Thanks for sharing, fairy weddingmother!
2. You need to stay hydrated.
Again, mind –> blown! I wrote this one down to make sure I don’t forget it.
3. Tone your arms and back.
Now I know I’ve never heard this one before. What next? I suppose you’re going to tell me to lose weight as well for the big day?
4. Use Pinterest for inspiration not imitation.
I feel like the writer of this Pinterest post just went metta.
5. Make sure you really like your photographer.
So I shouldn’t hire an asshole? Good stuff, thanks.
And now you know why I didn’t link this post. However if you’re the writer of it I’d just like to say thanks for sharing your awesome tips! Well done.
Have you planned a wedding? Can you help me? This is not my thing. I’m yet to create a wedding board on Pinterest because I keep getting stuck on the what I should name the board. I want it to be clever and funny, but also a little sweet and sentimental.
And no, we haven’t set a date. It took us 7 years to get engaged. Give us a few years to figure out the next steps. We don’t like to rush into anything.
