From rebel without a cause to blushing bride?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone watch the TV show "Community"?  I just saw the latest episode on Hulu — "Urban Matrimony and the Sandwich Arts" and I was cracking up because what Britta goes through is EXACTLY how I'm feeling. 


Britta is a very counterculture character who practices vegeterianism, goes to political rallies, and in general rails against the system (all things I've done!).  In the beginning of the episode, she describes a wedding as "a little girl's tea party" where "they're not drinking tea, they're drinking antiquated gender roles!"  Pretty much how I would've put it 5-10 years ago. 


But then her friend gets married, and she finds herself helping to plan the wedding.  Much to everyone's astonishment, Britta turns out to have a real knack for floral arrangements and decorating, and she pulls together a gorgeous wedding.  She then panics and becomes outraged with herself for turning into a stereotype, ranting "I'm Betty Crocker. I'm Martha Stewart. I'm one of the Steppenwolf wives!"


So is it just me, or is anyone else totally shocked to find themselves hooked on browsing wedding dresses and thinking about centerpieces?  I am seriously loving this stuff — fairy lights! tulle! it's all so pretty! — but part of me is like, who is this girly girl that I've become?  Am I ever going to get the old me back? 


Anyways, just wanted to share.  Now I'm off to plan a hiking trip or something. :)

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
