Bridezilla Handlers Needed

There may be a recession on people, but little girls still dream of getting married in a fancy white dress with lots of tulle and fairy lights and open bar and little appetizers. They dream of making their very best friends buy expensive ugly dresses that 'they can cut off and wear again' and they long to make their boyfriends sweat by renting a tux and trying to stay sober enough not to dance with the hookers at the bachelor party. They also dream of making their parents pay through the nose to rent the VFW Hall and buy rubber chicken for 200 of their closest friends. (DEEP BREATH.)

So if you have a degree in psychology and you've had a recent tetanus shot and you really don't want to go into the military, check out these jobs in the wedding industry. And because I am in the airport writing this after buying my daughter's wedding dress I don't think much is funny, I'll leave you with this joke:

Ah, yes, divorce, from the Latin word meaning to rip out a man's genitals through his wallet.
--Robin Williams

Jobs in the Wedding Industry:


  1. A friend of mine has had a part time job for years as a property manager for a civic building like a VFW Hall. Most of the special events he works are weddings. Boy does he have some stories!
    With all the cutbacks in city budgets, I have to wonder if they are struggling to find affordable and responsible people to serve as on-site, after hours (my friend worked nights and weekends) managers. Surely there's an insurance requirement for it somewhere, right? Hmmmmm ....

  2. Huh. What a great idea!! I'm getting married in September and I need a job. I most certainly don't want my parents to have to pay for the whole thing! Off to the bridal boutiques....
