Six weeks later, I unsubscribed.
And it was liberating.
You see, every day, sometimes more than once a day, I was getting emails from The Knot. “Top 50 trendy hairstyles”, “Get your Soon-to-be-Mrs. gear NOW”, “Choosing the perfect dress that will make all your dreams come true.” Delete. Delete. Delete. It’s all just too much. Joey and I are still trying to figure out how to “do us” and all this “wedding industry” propaganda is just clouding my brain.
Am I excited to be engaged? YES. Am I happy about the idea of marrying my best friend? HELL YES. Is it ok if you love The Knot and it was/is your go-to wedding resource? ABSOLUTELY. But it’s just not for me. And by clicking that ‘unsubscribe” button, I reaffirmed to myself that that’s ok too.
