- Wedding: October 2013
I love this site. I’m DIYing my wedding almost entirely, so it’s been a great resource for me. My latest endeavor has been to figure out my head table, so I turned to the Bee for inspiration, only to find that a lot of people poo poo the head table notion. Something about it’s antiquated and inconsiderate of your bridal party. POO to that. Don’t get me wrong. I love the sweetheart table look and I think it’s cool fresh idea, one that I even tried on for size, but I think head tables are a functional tradition. We are having a PARTY! We want a super fun wedding and if I’m spending a crap load of money to have a party, I’m not sitting with my fiancee like the only loners in a ruckus. If you want to chill and have some alone time, have atter. I get the romanticism of being with the man or woman you just vowed your life to and I think that’s awesome if that’s how you want to spend your evening. For me, I’m going to sit with my best pals, and by accepting a position in the bridal party you sorta accept being part of the show. If it’s asking too much for you to sit away from your SO for a couple hours you can totally decline to be in the wedding party. Chill people with your “tacky and rude” comments. It’s really not. There are a lot of over the top, self indulgent things people are putting into weddings these days that I think are awful, but each to their own and it’s your day so I will never utter one word about it where it’s not solicited. Just needed to get it off my chest haha. Love ya Bees. Relax a bit.
