    If you are paying for everything AND most of the liquor. ..if you have to do a cash bar after the tab is used, so be it!

    Why can’t your guess drink during a Sunday wedding? People drink on Sunday all the time. Beer tailgating at a football game, Mimosas at brunch, etc. Duh! This is a dumb list.

      I think she said not drinking too much b/c folks have to go to work the next day, esp. if it’s an evening reception…

    Ugh! Really? Save the date cards AND invitations? Bridal shower AND a bachelorette party? Rehearsal dinner? Wedding planning party?cake tasting party? Why is all of that necessary? Oh hell naw, that’s too much crap. I don’t even think I want bridesmaids.

    I’ve seen people have more unnecessary parties when they’re pregnant. Announcement parties,gender announcement parties and another one that I forgot besides the damn baby shower.smh
