The Ice Bucket Challenge is a social awareness campaign and fundraiser that has been blowing up social media over the past several weeks. The premise of the challenge is that you have a choice of either donating $100 to ALS research or dumping a bucket of water on your head. But the reality is that many people who participate in this challenge do both. There is no one policing this campaign to…
toin a wedding or two in my day. You have too, so I’m sure you have noticed that certain songs have, for better or worse, become “standard” at weddings.
But do you want to know something, I freaking hate the Chicken Dance. I think I liked that song the first 3 times I heard it at the roller rink, but the song had soured by the time I turned 12. But, I’ll be the first person to jump up…
So we’re not registering in the traditional sense, but, holy shit, this is awesome! Go buy one…

In case you weren’t sure, I, Sarah Brewer, am an obsessive over-planner. I was in touch with our photographer almost 3 months before we were engaged. I was scouting venues and putting together budgets around the same time. I’m not even going to talk about my Pinterest. Or my Evernote.
So there is some information on this blog that might not *quite* be relevent yet. Like the RSVP page. It’s hard…

“So, who’s the guy in your relationship?”
This question (or versions of it) is one of the most common questions posed to lesbian couples and the most frustrating. The reverse is true of male couples. While most people have post this question with absolutely no malice or agenda, people in same-sex relationships (including myself) can get kind of huffy about it. That is not…

"Baby I understand that some nights sadness will hit you like a tidal wave and there is no way to stop it or tell when it is coming. I understand how hard it is to keep from drowning. But I need you to understand this. When you are sad, I will call you and read you parts of my favorite book so that for a little while you can leave this life and feel like you’re someone else. When you are too sad to even speak I’ll sit there with you and listen to you breathe and memorize your heartbeat. And when you tell me that you need me, I will already be on my way to you. And if you want to cry, I will hold you all night. And if you want to laugh, I will bring your favorite comedy over and I will watch it with you and fall in love with your tear filled eyes every time the tv lights them up. If you want to be alone, I will give you space. But I will come back in the morning and tell you how beautiful you are and that I’m so happy you made it through the night. I will hold your hand and tell you that tonight will be better. And I’ll do everything I can to try and make that happen. So it’s okay to be sad, because I will always be here to make you happy again."
We’ve set a date, booked a photographer and begun to talk about how to pay for things like food, drinks, chairs etc. Although we can’t complain, neither of us makes excessive amounts of money, so we really are going to have smart and scrimp-ey with our money for the next 9 months (270 days 7 hours and 59 minutes).
Then our water heater broke.
No really, it burst forth with torrents of water. This…

So what happens with last names when two ladies or two gentlemen get married? That’s a great question! To answer requires a brief history on the name-changing tradition…
Historically, when a woman married a man she would take his surname or family name in order to signify that she is becoming a part of his family. The idea of two becoming one is a sweet and important idea, but the significance is…
