All A’s – You’re a Princess Bride.  Make sure you invite enough people to carry your train.

All B’s – You’re a Modern Bride.  Ask one of your bridesmaids to live-blog your special day.

All C’s – You’re a Carriage Before Marriage Bride.  Good luck planning your wedding, dumbass.

Having a baby before the wedding seemed like such a good idea at the time.  While I’m thrilled that we’re finally getting married, I must admit, I’m finding it hard to conjure up “dewy bride” while I’m knee deep in the toddler experience.

We’ve started interviewing wedding photographers.  Here’s me: “So, enough about your credentials, can you make me look like I’ve ever had a full night’s sleep during the past three years?  That’s the look I’m going for.”

And once we’ve left these meetings, Dave has no idea what even happened because while I stay laser focused on “Bridezilla’s list of insane questions designed to drive vendors away” (trademark pending), poor Dave is left to wrangle our wild child who has so far marked her territory by knocking over an expensive light and pooping in the studio.  Just imagine the kind of damage she can do at a bakery.

One wedding planning item I know will be a piece of cake (and it’s not the cake) is selecting our wedding rings.   Me and diamonds totally get along.
