Are You An Anti-Bride?

When freelance writer Jessica Murphy got engaged, planning her wedding was the last thing on her mind. In a response to the ever growing cost of the wedding industry (and the brides who can’t stand it!), she developed this fun and tell-tale way to decide if you’re an “anti-bride” – the Anti-Bride List.

Anti-brides are not anti-wedding or anti-commitment. They’re nontraditional, practical people who love the idea of spending their life with someone special, but don’t exactly like the idea of spending thousands of dollars to host a wedding. Do you think you’re an anti-bride? Let’s find out. Here are the ten ways you’ll know that you’re an anti-bride.

1. You need to be convinced to have a wedding.
2. Bridal boutiques give you the creeps.
3. You don’t believe that the wedding is “all about the bride.”
4. You let your bridal party decide what to wear.
5. Save the dates. What save the dates?
6. You’d rather go for a hike than have a bachelorette party.
7. You opt for nontraditional wedding invitations.
8. You fight tooth and nail not to have a bridal shower.
9. You don’t own anything resembling a wedding planner.
10. You only need a few months to get your act together.

Mmm, The Cookie Jar’s Tasty Posts

We love our sweets here at PWP. When you’re having a stressful day, isn’t it just amazing to enjoy a delicious cookie or sweet dessert? I love to bring in cookies and treats for the rest of the PWPOnline team (my oh-so-exciting nightlife), and I stumbled across The Cookie Jar blog while looking for some recipes. I was instantly hooked, and they were even nice enough to post about PWP! Thanks guys!

I’m a coffee addict, and I love to dip a tasty biscotti in my coffee in the morning, or when relaxing at night. I’ve never ventured out to making my own biscotti, but I know I’d feel so accomplished if I did. I’ll definitely be following the wise advice in “Six Ways to Ensure Perfect Biscotti”.

Biscotti Recipe

Although I love all things sugary sweet, I don’t want to undo my treadmill sessions, so “3 Healthy Cookies from Heidi” was a post meant for me! The cute cookies look delicious and aren’t as fattening as some other cookies.

Fortune Cookie Recipe

And then, I saw my absolute favorite post, “Make Your Own Fortune Cookies”. Not only do I have the iGoogle “Fortune Cookie” application on my desktop and my iGoogle page, but I’ve been known to randomly buy a box of fortune cookies with friends and open them all. There’s nothing like a surprise of good fortune. I’ll be testing my fortune cookie baking skills next week :)
