Wedding-Gate 2004

Here's a piece of advice for all the ladies out there: If a friend asks you to be in her weddding, you will RUN, not walk, as far, and as quickly away as possible.

I know you love your friend and all (or maybe you don't, who knows?) but by the end of the process you'll be doubting that love, their love and all types of love at $175 dollars a head.

Don't get me wrong. I've been in weddings before and I've put out a hefty chunk of change. But not since the last episode of "North Shore" have I been exposed to more overdramatics.

Let me backtrack a bit. I was asked to be in one of my oldest friends weddings last summer. I accepted, without question, as I always knew that someday we would be in each other's weddings. Everyone knows that weddings themselves can be a headache. Now factor in that there are three, three weddings in the same year for the same family. Suddenly it's like "The Amazing Race" of weddings...on your mark...get set...GO!

A bridesmaid gown and accessories that could be the down payment on an apt.?...check
An engagement party thrown by P. Diddy?...check
Hawaiian themed bridal shower WITHOUT the "Pina Colada Song" ?...check
A gift to top all bridal shower gifts given, EVER?...check

So now we are FINALLY in the home stretch with the bachelorette party coming this weekend. But this is not your mom's bachelorette party...oh no. This is the Woodstock of bachelorette parties, complete with non stop fun for all! Cause you will have fun damnit. And you will not be bitter about ANY of it.

I am beginning to see why people elope.
