reality check

I was fortunate to catch some reality wedding TV shows. I use the term “fortunate” lightly. I don’t normally watch these as they tend to be far from reality but I was inspired by an episode that captured absolutely ridiculous moments on these programs. Apparently people are making some rash decisions. I learned a good deal of what not to do whether you are the bride or groom and consider yourself sane.
Here goes…
  • Threatening to beat up any of your in laws before, during or following your wedding is not advised. You will start your marriage off on the wrong foot.
  • Doing the worm, a windmill or any other break dance move that involves getting on the floor in a wedding gown is not flattering at all. No stripper moves either.
  • If someone tells you that you look beautiful; believe them, thank them & move on. You will seem insecure if you don’t believe them.
  • When it’s time for the Hora, aka chair dance, during the reception, make sure there are no ceiling fans or chandeliers above you. Stay intact.
  • Don’t get totally WASTED to the point of spraying champagne all over your guests…unless it actually is that kind of party.
  • Guy liner is disturbing on the groom. Always.
  • Clothes shouldn’t be optional. Yes, it appears people are actually having naked weddings. What?
Wedding planning can be stressful but come the actual day, do not have a break down if things aren’t going exactly as you planned. It will come together. Don’t be a cry baby!
