As any newly engaged girl knows, getting wedding advice even when you have zero experience in wedding planning is overwhelming. It can get kind of repetitive and maybe even start to annoy you. You're only human, after all. And just like anything else in life, you don't really want to be told what to do and what to expect. You want to do your own thing and see for yourself, right?
Being asked to be a bridesmaid or a groomsman is one of the highest honors given to a friend. Yes, it is a lot of work and sometimes it isn't fun but when your friend asks you to stand with them while they take this huge step in their lives, you do it... and you do it without any complaints. Unfortunately, that isn't always the way things go.
As the years pass, memories fade. One day we find ourselves relying more and more on photos, videos, and keepsakes to spark a memory of notable events in our lives. But when a memory is so special, like one that is spawned by a unique wedding occurrence, chances are that no external stimuli will ever be necessary to remember that precious moment in time.
Some claim that you don't see a person's true colors until you start planning your wedding. Most of the time dealing with all of the personalities is much harder than dealing with the actual planning itself. For some reason, I've found that weddings have a way of turning even the most mild-mannered, normal human beings into Gary Busey.
Something borrowed is arguably the hardest of the four "somethings" to find for your big day. On the one hand, you'd like the item you borrow to be meaningful, but you also don't want to borrow something that's so valuable to the person you're getting it from that you spend your wedding worried about losing it.
