Well, dear reader(s), it is less than two weeks until I make an honest man out of Andrew (but don’t tell TheKnot.com). Do you hear that? Single ladies cryin’ the world over. Sorry, gals – he’ll soon be off the market for good.

Help me, doc!

The big stuff is all taken care of – it is the little stuff they don’t warn you about. As such, my superwoman of a mom (you may recognize her by her blog name, Sarah’s Mo) and I have declared this Saturday: “Get ‘er Done Day.”

Between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., we will be workin’ like maniacs to assemble our programs, create our favors, and add all those special touches that make a wedding so much work… errr, I mean that make a wedding so special and beautiful.

Andrew lucked out can’t join us because he has a seminar all day, but he will be there in spirit. Rhymes-with-Father-of-the-Bride is bringing his crafting A-game. And Mo and I will be sufficiently caffeinated. But there’s so much to do! So, if anyone is feeling particularly helpful and/or bored on Saturday, or if you just have a hankerin’ to create programs, favors, etc., West Hartford, Conn. is where it’s at!

Desperately seeking free time,

TheKnot.Com is Trying to Intimidate Me

As you may have guessed, I’m not what you might call TheKnot.com’s biggest fan.  Earlier this month I shared my suspicion that the sneaky website was trying to finagle an invite to my nuptials – today, I’m certain that’s what they wanted.  And since I so rudely rebuffed their trickery and campaign of guilt to secure one of our coveted invites, TheKnot.com has decided to engage me with intimidation tactics.  Don’t believe me?  Check out this email:

Don't threaten me, TheKnot.com!

Yeah.  TheKnot.com is trying to intimidate me.  “Sarah, here are all the things you will do wrong without us… You know you need us… Look at all the areas you could totally destroy at your big day by forsaking us… There’s still time… LOVE US!”

Well, TheKnot.com, I’m stronger than you think I am.  I’m not afraid of a little imperfection at my reception.  And I won’t succumb to Bridezilla-tendencies.  I’m not afraid of being a Bad BrideAgain.   


Restraining Order for a Website?

Speaking of creepy interwebs stuff, I would like to point out the stalkerishness of TheKnot.com.  I’ve already shared their cheese-free wedding ideas (still gives my bloggier half and my future hubs nightmares), but lately, they’ve been taking things even further, and it’s making me uncomfortable. 

For example, I recently received the following email from their team:

You're getting married? Can I come? Can I join you? Will you invite me?

That’s right, TheKnot.com is harassing me about when I’m getting hitched.  No more Mr. Nice Website: it wants to know if October 10, 2010 is still the big day, and it wants to know now.  It’s probably just worried that I won’t send an invitation, that it won’t be an honored guest at our nuptials.  And you know what?  TheKnot.com right to worry.  I’m not inviting it to our wedding.  And I resent their sneaky information hunt! 

So if this cunning website inquires if you, dear reader(s), know when I’m planning to make an honest man out of Andrew, please don’t share that information.  The last thing we need is a rude website crashing our wedding and getting’ all up in my dance space!
