The seven deadly sins of wedding planning

14 Oct 2016

Forgive me Father, for I have sinned…

With the ecstasy of planning a wedding comes the potential to commit the seven deadly sins. Just don’t let the sins get the better of you or else your inner bridezilla could come knocking.

1. Gluttony

In between the champagne quaffing, wedding menu tasting and cake guzzling, don’t forget to breathe. A cause for celebration, weddings are one of the times that you can indulge completely guilt-free.

2. Greed

Because a bride reserves the right to want (and have) it all on her wedding day. From the budget-blowing dress to the perfect pair of shoes with an impressive pricetag; that’s what credit cards are for, right?

3. Envy

You’ve just been to your friend’s wedding while planning your own and her celebrations make yours look like a children’s party at McDonalds in comparison. Now you’re on a rampage to outdo her in every way….

4. Wrath

When another bride gets the dress off the sale rail that you wanted. For all you Friends fans; whistles at the ready!

5. Lust

That wonderful feeling when you find ‘the dress’ *swoon*. Lust or love? We hope the latter, but either way it feels good.

6. Sloth

This wedding planning is tiring work, so it’s absolutely fine to ask your partner to pass you the TV remote just an arm’s length away, serve you copious amounts of cake and tuck you into bed.

7. Pride

Your wedding day arrives and the compliments just keep coming. Here’s your chance to enjoy that smug feeling, while wallowing in the glory of your special day.
