I can't wait to hear what ridiculous name they bestow upon this poor child.  Though maybe there's hope since the husband appears to have a little bit of sense? (Like realizing it was narcissistic to put their wedding photo in the nursery.)

 

And I agree– she will be a shit parent.  Obsessed with the best baby gear and wardrobe but really missing the POINT.  Kind of like her continuing obsession with a one day celebration, rather than on the lifelong commitment that is being celebrated. 

When she posted the Bergdoff Goodman cashmere infant sweater, I rolled my eyes so hard. No one in their right mind would dress an infant in that. It's not even a matter of outgrowing so much as spit up, puke, etc. Since she's clearly so caught up in that, she could rebrand herself as a "mommy fashion blogger." I know someone on Hellobee who practically makes her kitten a brand plate using IG to become a brand rep for free Freshlypicked mocs and other ridiculously expensive and stupid baby/kid clothes. I feel bad for that kid too (girl).

This blog probably has a very small audience, though a shout out in the New York Times probably gave it a decent (if not long lasting?) boost.  I admit that I may just not "get" bridal blogs… because I'm one of those who thinks the bulk of planning should be about your MARRIAGE and not the hours-long party to celebrate it. And if your focus really is on the things that matter, well, I just don't see how you could have THAT much time and energy left for the crap that this chick spews on and on about.  

And maybe that's what bothers me about her… she wants to be both.  She wants to seem deep and meaningful, but the bulk of her writing is about shoes and pink glitter.  She hosted a $100k+ wedding (at a minimum) but then says she's a champion for the homeless?  This skeptic just can't be on board with that.  If you quit your day job to focus on writing a blog that's 99% about the shallow stuff (as she did), I'm sorry, but yes, you are shallow.  Even if you totally care, like, a lot!, about pressing social problems.

I know the author personally, though not well, so I suppose the fact that I already find her irksome doesn't bode well for my impression of her blog.

I agree that the name of the blog is unfortunate (VERY), but I'm not getting the rest of what you wrote.

How do you know she spent $100,000?  I read the blog after seeing it mentioned here, but found no mention of a budget.  Did she tell you?

Eh, what's wrong with running a wedding planning blog if it helps to pay the bills?

Why do you think planning a wedding means the person doesn't care about the actual marriage?  You're reaching.

Also don't get the "gold digger" accusations in this thread.  She says in the blog that they have debt.  Evidently, they've moved across country twice since the wedding for his career, and she found new jobs both times.  The most recent job wasn't working out, so she switched gears.  So what?

She seems to love her husband and vice versa.  Seems harmless to me. idontknow

I would say her blog is more of a shrine of her wedding day. She left a job with an actual income in hopes to become blog-famous. She now spends her days on Pinterest and probably re-watching her wedding video. Even her anniversary was another moment to gloat on her wedding day. It was so ridiculous to see her trying to recreate her bridal look on her freaking anniversary. Why not focus on the previous year you spent with your husband instead of worrying about materialistic crap? I wonder what his mom thinks of her daughter-in-law sitting behind a computer looking at wedding pictures all day.

Her "preggo" posts make it seem like she has been nothing but miserable for the past few months. It's like she can't hear the truth and wants to pretend motherhood will be filled with clothes, baby gear, pink, and glitter.  

P.S.-Just because someone has a blog, it doesn't mean they're profiting from it. From what I can tell she only has one sponsor and it's not even a well-known company.

Two things:

 

1. She actually GLOATS about how they both cheated on their then significant others when they first met?  On their wedding website?!  That usually bodes well for being able to trust each other!

2.  Today's post.  Really, a post about a "magical" ultrasound?  On your wedding website?  And I don't see full lips on that child– I assume her arms are in her face, otherwise it truly looks like a gorilla.

Wow, sounds like they're perfect for each other! So many saying seem to fit both of them: "If he/she cheats with you, they'll cheat on you." "Cheating with him leaves an opening." I'm guessing that both of their then significant others are far better off without these two losers.

Her baby looks like a gorilla in that ultrasound. Did she edit it after you posted because she mentions the arms in the way, etc? The baby's weight may be exaggerated too. Ultrasounds aren't the best indicator of weight. I've heard so many stories of huge weight projections of babies. When they're born, they're average size like 6-8 lbs. Basically, she's so full of her own shit that she can't look beyond anything.

I mean was it relevant to their love story that she had to include this? Oh wait…..

I would think she'd have to build up some content and readership in order to start attracting advertisers.  She does post her e-mail for advertising inquiries, so it seems she's trying to attract revenue.  And I think you have to look at wedding pictures all day if you're going to own a bridal blog.  Yes?

I'm not seeing any evidence that she ignores the day-to-day of marriage.  She's posted a lot of nice stuff about her husband and marriage.

I don't know.  I feel contempt for lots of sites, but I can't see how this one is a rage generator.  It just looks like yet another person attempting to start a wedding site.  They all post about material stuff because brides are looking for resources.  But I think she gets in a lot of posts about the emotional side of marriage too.

Time will tell if she turns the site into a career.  She has mentioned that she brings in money, so . . .

You're probably on the wrong site then because I don't see any advertisers on her blog. No one even signs up for her giveaways so I don't know what readership you are talking about. I think she is just trying to get blog famous so she can work as little as possible and bring in money. She has zero work ethic, yet claims to be a feminist. She should register for a dictionary. I have yet to see her mention any of her own income. Of course, by income I do not mean an allowance provided by her mom or husband.

If you find nothing wrong with being a bride as her sole purpose of existence, then you can kindly exit this board by clicking the tiny x on your browser. wk

If at eight months pregnant, I had the energy to shower, do my makeup, and walk around a party in 4-inch heels for seven hours, I think it’s safe to say I’ll find a way to put mascara on when the baby’s here…"

Keep telling yourself that, sweetheart.

haha! The thing about parenthood that no one tells you about is your personal hygiene woes with a newborn and even a toddler. I shocked myself by taking a shower twice this week early in the week. Usually, it's like one at the beginning of the week and one at the end of the week. She's not even working pre-baby. Try working pre-baby and 3 months postpartum. Tell me your woes then darling.

I know one of the key details of our engagement story is the brand of shoes we were wearing! So romantic! So sentimental (and not at all laughably materialistic)!

That night we got dressed up Hollywood style–Jenny in a black silk high-low maxi dress and Louboutins, Josh in a linen shirt, khaki jacket and Bally's

lol

haha! She would be mortified at the ugly sweater I wore when we got engaged. I still have the sweater despite not wearing it in years since it was my ugly engagement sweater. I could have picked a different sweater, but grabbed that one. There were no fancy brand names articles of clothes on me that day.

No Hermes, no Balenciaga? Your engagement is null and void! Your marriage, too. You're a fraud!

As am I, since I don't think North Face snow boots and an LL Bean parka are couture enough to count as acceptable engagement clothes! (We got engaged in the woods, during a snow storm.)

OMG how rude of you! How dare you not tell her she looks beautiful and tiny or how she's going to have a cute baby girl worthy of being Miss Universe. She's going to be a chic perfect mama and don't you forget it. Her house will be spotless and her baby will be born to be potty trained so her perfectly manicured hands will never have to touch shit.
