I get you bridezilla
My favorite thing ever is when it turns out I understand or can completely empathize with something I previously judged or ridiculed. And not like a cynical loving it, I mean seriously love it: I love how it shakes me out of a set reality and reminds me for the umpteenth time "Things are not always what they seem!!!!".
Obsession with the perfect wedding is the newest one. I am doing this series of drawings and the theme is weddings and brides so I have been scouring through bunch of wedding blogs and O.M.G!!! Like a proper American-mall-hanging-teenage-girl OMG. There are so many beautiful things out there and that industry, I feel, is being a bit mean. They are taking advantage of a delicate emotional time in peoples lives and "selling them happiness" in the form of sets and lace and candles and flower arrangements and ribbons and cakes and table cloths. AND there are seriously cool stuff out there! Not only things that my aunties would like. I mean properly cool designer shop/Urban Outfitters/ Anthropologie kind of cool stuff. And I can absolutely see how in that moment, when you are having a party to celebrate your (fingers crossed) only marriage to a person you think is very very cool you would want only the coolest napkins ANYONE has ever seen. I totally get that now.
