My Wedding Blog: Most Likely A Rant

Hi

I write a wedding blog about my personal experiences (and often terrors) about getting married.  From the fear of the tight white dress to my inability to say "finance" without a fake french accent, I document it all.  Often a little too much.  ;-)

I would love to publish it on another blog or a magazine?  Does anyone have any advice on how to approach blogs or magazines with a column idea?

Thanks!

Tara

    Why would you say finance in a french accent?

    I find this odd. Just me?

    I only talk about my finances in German or Swiss.

    Finance - money

    Fiance - future spouse.

    Probably want to change that in your blog.
    Holy Crap. We survived the first year!

    By the way, WAY too much info on the net, sista. You're only missing your social, address and a map.

    Did anyone else notice the list of 20 attendants? Not to mention- wtf is a 'engagement party/bach party'? Did your parents hire a stripper for your engagement party? I'm confused.

    Man- you guys are tough. 

    I appreciate the snarkiness, but I'm honestly kinda hurt.

    Coming to the snarky brides I should have had a thicker skin- but its rough to have you guys tear me a new one.

    The posters on Etiquette are way more nice. That's why it's called Etiquette. Everyone is all "please," "thank you" and "may I?"

    You use finacee in your blog.  That's a new one for me.  I believe it is German for "a whale's vagina."

    Confession:  this made me laugh:

    Asking someone to be part of your bridal party is a little awkward. Most likely everyone will accept but you always worry they may not. Then the whole things is strangely formal. Do you hug? shake hands? curtsy?

    Well done, copywriter.  Well done.

    Ha! You've been blogged, ladies. Here's a C&P in case she deletes this entry later:

    The Snarky Brides of The Knot may make you cry


    So after getting such wonderful feedback from all of you, being a follower of other blogs, and an all over opportunist I thought I may looking into doing a guest column or something on weddings. In an online wedding site or a magazine or something.

    I thought the Knot.com might be a good resource- so I checked out the community boards and found a Wedding Board for Snarky Brides.

    I thought wow.

    How nice.

    What a great resource!

    Snarky Brides! I’m a Snarky Bride!

    These are my ladies! We will be fast friends in no time.

    See how excited I was- I was thinking with exclamation points.

    But wow – I was so so wrong.

    I got my ass kicked.

    Like literally. There may be a Manolo Blahnik heel mark on my actual ass.

    I’ll let you in on a little personal secret. I can dish it, but I can’t take it. So Snarky Brides of the Knot. Bitches of the Bridal Message Boards. You got me. I’m hurt.

    Here are the gory details.

    My original post:

    Thanks! Tara


    Here is a sampling from my ass kicking:

    - Well that was exciting, and by exciting I mean lame.

    - Why would you say finance in a french accent?

    - I only talk about my finances in German or Swiss.

    - You use finacee in your blog. That's a new one for me. I believe it is German for "a whale's vagina."

    - Her blog says she is a copywriter. HAHA

    - By the way, WAY too much info on the net, sista. You're only missing your social, address and a map.

    - What the fvcking fvck is this?

    - Did anyone else notice the list of 20 attendants? Not to mention- wtf is a 'engagement party/bach party'? Did your parents hire a stripper for your engagement party? I'm confused.

    - The posters on Etiquette are way more nice. That's why it's called Etiquette. Everyone is all "please," "thank you" and "may I?"

    See the whole thing here.

    I spelled fiancée wrong, which unleashed the bridal beasts. My bridal party number, chosen career path, and all over character were slaughtered.

    I guess there is one simple question I have for you, Snarky Brides.




    Who hurt you?





    Ha- as I was writing this my mom commented on my last post to correct my use of their and there. Okay- I get it. I have trouble with spelling and grammar. I can find about 6-8 of my previous English teachers that would confirm that.

    I once got a 23% on a midterm paper.

    The paper was so covered in red marks that the desk started to bleed a little.

    But this blog is for ranting. Most Likely Not a Well Edited Rant.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go ice my ego.

    Actually, you left out the one that reported you as someone vending something. That's why you were deleted.

    did ya see the comment to that post:

    They are brutal, however, the majority of the ladies are wonderful if you stick around to get to know them.
    Re the bitches: the thing is, they would never say that to your face. They are married ladies with NO lives who hang around the knot, sitting on their computers, waiting for the next person they can belittle to make themselves look better. Neb, Bethrothed and CEW are the worst. Next time someone posts something (anything) - just watch - Neb or Bethrothled will have replied in within 3 - 5 minutes... Guaranteed! They have no lives!
    Do not let these "ladies" bring you down. They're just miserable beings! All you have to do is really feel sorry for them (and their husbands).
