by Bitchless Bride

So not to brag, but this happens to me a lot. My brides really like me (crazy I know) and want to be my friend after their weddings. And while I'm open to maintaining our relationship, there's just one problem. You don't actually know how to be my friend. Huh? Whaaa? Allow me to be blunt... It's a one sided friendship. Seriously usually there's nothing in it for me because we are so used to talking about you, and your wedding, that you don't know how to incorporate my life into the...
