Stupid Wedding

You’re in America, you don’t HAVE TO marry him

It should go without saying, if you’re having second thoughts about marrying him, YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO THROUGH WITH THE WEDDING! From the brides I’ve worked with professionally, to friends, to my own mom who 25 years later got divorced, if you’re having doubts, there’s probably a reason.

You don’t have to get your hair done frozen in panic because you’ve got cold feet. You don’t have to apologizing to me because your crying (and not out of happiness) keeps messing up your mascara. And bitching and fighting with your groom over the phone isn’t exactly the way to start “The rest of your lives” together. (Though it does make for good gossip). Your wedding day should be the one day that you’re overflowing with ooey, gooey, annoying, cheeseball love, because once the honeymoon is over, even if it’s the perfect marriage to a perfect man, those mushy feelings won’t always be there (unless he doesn’t the dishes for you out of the blue).

I’m always surprised by couples who don’t communicate with each other. Whether it’s discussing having kids or not, the fact that you’re uncomfortable with your wedding vows or something more simple like, “Hey, I don’t think we should get married”, TALK TO EACH OTHER. Who cares what your mom or the guests think, do what makes you happy. And do us stylists a favor, talk to each other before you’re getting your hair and makeup done. It’s getting awkward in this salon.
