Words that should be used more carefully when describing weddings:
Even though our wedding was almost a year ago (srsly??) I still read a lot of wedding blogs because I work in the wedding industry. I can't tell you how often I read that a wedding has "effortless charm" or is so "simple and sweet" or has such "casual elegance," when in reality, more often than not, a team of creative professionals were hired to make things look so "effortless" and "simple" and "casual." Either that, or you know that the bride and groom had to put a lot of thought and time into the look and style they were going for, and in my book, thought+time=effort. Can we stop making other brides feel like crap for spending months on end refining all of their details? Can we stop pretending that all of these gorgeous weddings just fell into place?
I am all for making things look effortless; but wedding blogs, please stop telling us that the details were effortless to put together. We are onto you, and you're not fooling us anymore!
Tangent over. Just had to get that out of my system :-)
