So now I just have this motley messy to-do list. And no item on the list needs to be checked off at any point soon.
-Pick out flowers for me and my bridesmaid's bouquets.
[Can be done morning of wedding.]
-Book a DJ.
[Can't be bothered right now.]
-Buy a dress.
[Done. Sadly. I think this is what I'm supposed to be fixated on for the next three months.]
-Make guest list.
[But I don't know who I will stop liking between now and then.]
And so instead of accomplishing anything meaningful, I just research everything I possibly can. I watch TV shows and I peruse websites about weddings.
But I don't look for ideas I want to borrow for my own wedding. On the contrary, I seem to be taking a decidedly negative approach to this planning. I only care to read about weddings gone wrong. About evil mother-in-laws. About brides who got too fat to fit into their gowns. About receptions that cost $60k and are tacky as hell.
I participate in several different bridal discussion boards. But my favorite is "the bitching forum," where I just read about everything that's pissing brides off.
It's much easier for me to look at pictures of centerpieces and bridesmaids dresses and color schemes and go "Blech!" than to try to make any actual decisions about what I like. Besides, at least I've figured out what I don't like.
Today, my research brought me to Cake Wrecks. A website of horrible cakes. Oh the delight!
And so I present to you the best worst wedding cake I've ever seen.
