Can I Write the Bride’s Thank You Cards for Her?


Dear Wedding Confessionals,
My younger sister is getting married.  I’m her Maid Of Honor, which I take very seriously.  In helping her plan her wedding, I’ve tried to give advice because I’m much more organized and practical than she ever will be.  I was hoping some of my planning skills would rub off on her, but so far I’m getting nowhere.

How Do I Get My Bridesmaid to Shave Her Hairy Armpits?!


Hey Wedding Confessionals Gang!

My wedding is a few months away, and most of the big details have already been finalized – including the bridesmaids dresses.  They’re going to be a blue, strapless, with a sweetheart neckline.  It’s a dress that looks great on everyone, and (from what they’ve told me) all of my bridesmaids are happy.

So what’s the problem?  My sister.  She is one of my bridesmaids.  She also has recently returned from volunteering abroad and has changed a few of her lifestyles while she was away.  She’s now vegan (fine), only wears mineral based make up (whatever, I don’t care) and stopped shaving her armpits (gross).

Sparklers: Romantic or Safety Hazard?



I insisted that my sister have sparklers for the end of her wedding reception when her and the groom run to their limo.  I had them at my wedding, and the photos looked so cool!  She wasn’t too jazzed about the idea – she’s kind of scared of fireworks and doesn’t even light candles in her own home.  But I told her I’d pay for them, and she could thank me later when she also had great pics.  But then at the end of her wedding, they are dashing out to the limo…and one of the sparks hits her in the eye!  A trip to the ER and a lot of money later, my sister has some great pictures…of her wearing an eye patch on her honeymoon.  Her vision ended up being fine, but our relationship…not so much.

#FBF: The Day Pippa’s Sister Got Married

Every Friday, someone from the the Wedding Confessionals crew flashes back to a memorable nuptials-related moment in either pop culture or their personal lives.  Sometimes it’s scary, sometimes it’s weird, but it’s always hilarious. Welcome to #FBF.

The day we all tuned in to watch Kate Middleton get upstaged by her sister’s bum.  Kate looked amazing, but Pippa stole the show with her perfectly cut bridesmaid dress.  Rather than bow down, we will be squatting in honor of you, Pippa!

Do I Invite Her Estranged Sister to the Surprise Proposal?


Dear Wedding Confessionals –

I’m so glad you’re here, because I really need some advice!

My best friend is about to get engaged, although she doesn’t know it yet! Her guy of a year wants to do a surprise proposal. He has asked me to help bring her friends and family together while he manages inviting his people, so that everyone they love will be there to share the big news with them.

Here’s where I need your help…her sister. My best friend and her sister don’t get along. I’m talking black sheep, they haven’t talked in over a year, and the last time they did talk things got nasty. (For the record I’m totally on my bff’s side when it comes to her sister). Continue reading “Do I Invite Her Estranged Sister to the Surprise Proposal?”
