Did you hear it? At 6 p.m. yesterday? It was the sound of me becoming “That Bride.” The one who has a wedding website. Trust me, no one is more nauseated with me than I am. Practicality won out, though. (Don’t have to keep sending out info about events, hotels, etc.) And within 30 seconds of deciding to set one up, I broke my first rule and that was to not pay for the darn thing. But I quickly discovered that freebie wedding sites require either putting up a page with the visual panache of the Glades Correctional Facility weekly menu web page, or you have to be willing to have “Create Your Own Zwinky!” flash atop the details of your journey to holy matrimony. I forked over $32.50 for the year.
So there it is. My dignity costs exactly $32.50.
