Fuck Chair covers is hard often on The Bridechilla Podcast.
People who you think you should invite to your wedding but don't want to invite but feel pressure to do so anyway.
These people include, work friends, parent's friends, distant relatives and people you invited when you were drunk.
Where you put traditions, wedding tasks, pressure and unfinished DIY projects that you thought were important but are actually not. Throwing these things in the fuck it bucket is both empowering and fun. Try it. You'll never look back.
Parents, friends and relatives who have offered to contribute financially to your wedding, which is nice but these contributions can be used as a way to guilt and persuade you to plan the wedding that they think you should have. Aleisha calls this 'conditional generosity'.
