A Decent (Wedding) Proposal

Most men of my generation really, really, really want to get the money, the girl and thwart the bad guy just like George Clooney in Ocean’s Eleven. But in reality most of us are just trying to get by on the limited skills and talent that we’ve amassed over time. In short: we aspire to be Danny Ocean, but in reality we are all just Billy Ocean. Which is why most marriage proposals are a goddamn mess.

A Truly Honorable Maid of Honor

“I know Addie’s your sister, but can I be your maid of honor?” Becca has been posing this question for years.  Never mind that I couldn’t be farther from marriage.  Our weddings are hypothetical scenarios that we run through often, and the pressure to choose my right-hand woman is real.

What a Difference a Year Doesn’t Make

This weekend is my first real anniversary.

Hurricane Sandy: In The End, Only Kindness Matters

How Bridesmaiding Helped A Good Deed Go A Long Way: You don’t need to read it here to know that this has been one sad week along the East Coast. But in the midst of horrible images of loss and destruction, I’ve been so happy to see the other side of this storm. The random acts of kindness. People taking friends and family into their homes. Strangers helping strangers… It’s been truly moving to see positivity and good deeds emerge during a week of absolute devastation. So, as you can imagine – Bridesmaiding was just thrilled when we had a chance to help out even in the smallest way.

A Moment Between Siblings

When I was 4 ½ years old my whole world came crashing down. My little brother was born. I had spent my whole short life being the center of the universe. Now, I had to share everything – the biggest being my bedroom. When I was seven and Billy was two, my safe haven was […]

The Best Man

I want to talk for a minute about groomsmen. Specifically, the best man. The best man’s job has turned into little more than bachelor party social director. But it can be, and should be, much more than that. Your best man is your voice of sanity in the wilderness. He’s the one who should say […]
