You probably know theknot.com is a web site with tools for brides-to-be to get a handle on the wedding planning process. What you might not know is that The Knot masquerades itself as a helpful friend--when it is really pure evil. Do you really have to remind me that there are only 93 days until the wedding and 100 things still to do on my checklist? This just seems plain mean, you bully.
I really have no desire to "experiment with my beauty routine, self-tanners, and facials." Nor do I need you to remind me to "take a moment to thank your parents and tell them you love them"--thanks.
Fellow brides-to-be tell me, "you don't need to worry about everything on the checklist. Everyone is different. You don't have to do it all."
Oh yeah? Well if I'm not the one who is going to finalize the menu with the caterer, confirm reservations for out-of-town guests, write the ceremony program, write thank you notes, attend bridal gown fittings, wrap the bridesmaids' gifts, and confirm deliveries with vendors--who exactly is going to make sure all that crap gets done? Are you volunteering? How bout you, over there, The Knot? Huh? I don't hear you offering to have my dress preserved after the wedding. You bitch.
