Thoughts You’ve Had If You’re Not A Wedding Person
If you’re just not a wedding person, then you notice completely different things at a wedding than most people do. While many guests are saying “Oooh” and “Aaaah” to the ribbons on the backs of the chairs, the cute way the dog is incorporated into the ceremony, the way the bride and groom’s cultural backgrounds are reflected in the food and the clever guest gifts, you’re just feeling a little confused by the whole spectacle. Considering how much time and money (and fighting and stress) go into planning a wedding, it’s no surprise the event isn’t for everybody. Of course, the day means a lot to your friend—the bride or groom—and so you would never say these things out loud. But, if you’re not really a wedding person, you’ve had these thoughts at a wedding.
How much for a dress you’ll wear once?
I have to shop the clearance section at the already cheap stores and have spent my gift card to a department store on gourmet popcorn and olive oil there because I needed groceries more than I needed a handbag. I could never justify paying off a dress I’ll only wear once in $200 increments, every month, for 18 months. And, really, there are plenty of simple $40 white dresses I could just dress up with costume jewelry.
