Lovely, but not. You know?
Before I even begin the list of all lists, I want to make two things clear.
Having a wedding and getting married is lovely and beautiful and memorable and every kind of wonderful.
Falling pregnant and having a baby is lovely and beautiful and memorable and every kind of wonderful.
But let’s be truthful here for a minute. It’s not all sunshine and rainbows. Sometimes there’s a little rain. THAT is what I am acknowledging here.
Brides and preggers…you’ll get me.
1. Everyone tries to rip you off.
The same rule applies to a wedding as it does to baby. Mention either word and the price will go up. A lot.
Yes, you will also definitely, absolutely need that one pricey thing. If you don’t have it, everything will be ruined. Or so they say.
2. Everyone wants to be in the spotlight. But no one wants to clean up at the end.
Brides and mums-to-be, you will be inundated with requests to have a special role. But don’t worry, when the crowd’s gone and the photos are on Instagram, it will just be you. Either in your dress, or with your baby.
3. You hear from strangers.
Oh com'on, don't you remember your most favourite family member?
4. You're expected to know everything.
