Marta Acosta has offered up three ARCs of her new book Bride of Casa Dracula for Bitchery readers – and all we want is your best or worst wedding memory. Easy, right? Doesn’t even have to be your own wedding. Could be someone else’s.
For example, I know a certain Smart Bitch who was once a bridesmaid, and the dress was a certain shade that turned that Smart Bitch a very greenish shade of green, without the added enjoyment of nausea. To add fun to frolic, said Smart Bitch was the lone short dark haired attendant among a sea of tall, lithe, blonde, and tanned Southern bridesmaids. Oh, it was lovely. I mean, compared to some dresses out there, she got lucky, but still. Oy.
Marta says, “I actually don’t have a worst wedding memory. City Hall ceremony, small gathering at my parents’ house, margaritas and Mexican food. Okay, except that my husband and I woke up the next morning and we both said, ‘What the hell have we done!’”
Now, my very favorite worst wedding story, one that I reread for added laughs when I’m having a hard day, is the Titanic wedding dress story from Etiquette Hell. Enjoy – but do not feel like your comment has to be that long!
I’ve often said that people do two things at weddings: they get married or they get offended. I usually try to make sure I’m not in the latter group, since I’ve already participated in the former. So what’s your best or worst wedding memory? Share! Your comment enters you in a chance to win an ARC – you have 24 hours, and Marta will pick the winner. Ready, set, go!
