Wedding Awesomness Elsewhere

by Meg Keene, CEO & Editor-In-Chief

“Did you know, unless you are bananas-rich, you are kind of expected to plan an entire wedding by yourselves? Venue, invitations, colors, flowers, caterers. (For example, Papa John’s requires a two-month lead time for weddings! And they don’t do cakes.) You even have to be sure of things like “will the wedding venue have a sadsack on hand in case one of your wedding guests besmirches the restroom?” It really is that detailed.”

My new favorite word for weddings is now bananas.

Read it all here. (Thanks Lauren!)

    Thanks to the new sort old-to-new feature I’m now totally going to attempt make “bananas-rich” happen.

    (Also, I feel like I’m reading notes in your high school yearbook or something – this starting at the beginning thing is weird and super fun)
