standing room only.

Monday, June 2, 2014

Don't fool yourself into thinking that every one of your guests needs a seat at the ceremony. 

Renting chairs can get costly - this coming from someone who has an inventory of rental chairs and benches; $4-12 per chair (depending on style) can quickly translates into hundreds of dollars when multiplied by your 'impossible to pare down' guest list. I'm not saying you should force your Grammy or Uncle Joe with the bad knee to stand; I'm just saying, if your ceremony is relatively short (under 30 minutes), why not set out a few rows of reserved seating and have the rest stand? 

I'm willing to bet that any parent with small children, any woman in a short skirt or any man in a cumbersome suit jacket would appreciate the extra freedom that standing allows. 

Your back and bank account will thank you PLUS I think it looks super duper cool in photos. Just see for yourself:

Also the whole 'guests circling the I do's' is intimately genius in my planning opinion.

most embarrassing thing that's happened to me all year week?

Remember that romper I picked up from Target earlier in the month? well consider this my Public Service Announcement... 

it's effing see through people!!!! how did I not see this in their 360 degree dressing room mirror?! I don't even want to tell you how I discovered this little factoid. 

but of course I will. 

Part 1 of the story goes like this: I wore it to a baby shower for the editor of Adore Magazine. This means a shit ton of industry ladies were in attendance and unbeknownst to me I was flashing panties while the mama-to-be was unwrapping Pampers (insert 'uncool' face).

Part 2 is that I got so many compliments on my $30 jumper that I decided to wear it on a BIG meeting day. I popped into Tim Horton's to grab myself a tea and use the ladies' washroom and what do I see as I'm checking out my rear? white a$$ + black thong. My face went 50 shades of red and once I convinced myself that I couldn't camp out in a restroom for the rest of my life, I made a beeline for the exit but not before overhearing a table full of teenagers say, "that's her" and then all turn and watch me leave! I rrrrrreally wish I was making this up.

Of course I didn't have time to go home and change before my first meeting so I'm touring the property with a lovely couple and we come face-to-face with a flight of garden steps #killme. I hold back praying the guy will follow his girl up, but like a true gentleman he gestures me to go first.

I'm gonna stop the story right there cause we all know how this ends...
with me wearing boxer shorts for the rest of eternity. I hear Saxx are really comfortable and provide modest coverage.

One would think this sad horrifying tale would've turned me off one pieces all together, but no...

$12 all black, tube top, harem pant romper with pockets?! couldn't get it in the cart fast enough (once I double checked the fabric density).
