Music: Check. Photographer: Check. Flowers: Checkbook, Please.

Sitting on the couch and planning my wedding hasn’t been all hearts and bonbons. First, pending reconstructive knee surgery this Wednesday, I’m barely mobile enough to go to the bathroom, much less meet with vendors; and second, now that I’ve had time to read every bridal magazine on the market, plus celebrity planner Mindy Weiss’s new how-to guide, The Wedding Book, I’m sufficiently confused. Band versus DJ? Roses versus stephanotis? Sushi station versus passed apps? No wonder men don’t get involved…

Eels, Pugs, and Other Lounge Lizard News

Just because I’ll be stuck on the couch nursing an injured knee instead of a cocktail tomorrow on my birthday doesn’t mean you can’t raise a toast on April 15th.

The Accidental Bride is Full. Speed. Ahead.

We’ve set a date for the wedding: a Sunday next September. Yes, we’re on what you’d call the marriage fast track. And no, I’m not pregnant, although a number of people—including my own brother—asked if I was when we told them our date was less than six months away.

That’s one good thing about a Sunday-night wedding: If we had wanted to say our I dos on a Saturday, we would have had to wait at least a year. Most of the places we’ve looked into are booked for Saturdays well into 2009…

The Accidental Bride on Catering

You asked for it: New to Last Girl Standing, a few notes now and then on planning for my upcoming nuptials, along with regular communiqués from the nightlife front. Hey, I’m not settled down yet.

For a girl who’s spent her adult years attending and writing about lavish openings and parties, you’d think this wedding planning stuff would come naturally.

Think again…
