A new project has had me borwsing through what seems like an endless stream of wedding magazines and their associated websites.
I had to smirk when I came across this old blog post https://rowanjanuary.wordpress.com/2011/12/14/10-things-i-hate-about-weddings/ that included the telling truth...
If you read wedding magazines or in fact most magazines aimed at women, you will internalise a lot of tedious bull****. Newly engaged me bought wedding magazines for three months before fleeing screaming into the blogosphere. I cracked after being driven into a panic because I did not have a signature perfume to wear on the day.
You see, magazines are primarily funded by advertising money and their not so secret mission is to entice you to [buy all the things] (http://apracticalwedding.com/2011/10/you-dont-have-to-buy-all-the-things/). And this will quickly drive you mad and broke.
Keep it real girls, feet on the ground and an eye on the bank balance.
