If You Wear Keds On Your Wedding Day, I'm Leaving The Reception And Taking My Gift With Me

Ever since I can remember, I've always thought about what my wedding will be like when I finally get married (let's hope).

Of course, the dress is going to have to be fabulous and tight, so probably going to opt for a mermaid style gown that will really hug my curves in all the right ways. I will have my hair in loose curls, my makeup simple and natural, and in my hands is a bouquet of roses.

What is on my feet you ask? A pair of heels, NOT SNEAKERS, especially KEDS.

Sneakers belong in the closet, NOT ON YOUR FEET, when it's your wedding day.

Yes, I said it, Keds do not belong on a bride's feet as she walks down the aisle to her dream man or woman. This trend is such an eyesore, just thinking about it makes me cringe. Yes, I am sure they're comfier than even your comfiest pair of heels, and that's why we have wedges, ladies! I live for seeing a bride's heels just as much as her dress, and when I see she has Keds on, well, my heart breaks for her. About ten years from now, looking back, she will definitely regret not wearing a different pair of shoes.

Keds, in general, have never appealed to me, and they especially don't appeal with a $3000 dress. Heels, or even a tasteful pair of formal flats, just add a state of elegance to any outfit. Your wedding shoes should be one of the most important objects of purchase. I've watched enough "Say Yes To The Dress" to know what does and does not look good, and I honestly don't think I've ever seen a bride on any version of the show walk in with Keds. Sure I've seen Converse and cowboy boots, and I don't accept either, but Keds are by far the worse of this group of footwear.

Keds remind me of old ladies, and you don't want to look like an old lady on your wedding day. You can switch into your beloved Keds after the wedding and the reception are over. Only as you travel to the airport for your honeymoon the next day can you put those things on your perfect, manicured feet. I like to think of myself as a fashionista, and as many other women do too, and I get that we all have our own special styles... however, Keds do not belong in your wedding ensemble (or really any ensemble, IMO) but especially not at your wedding.

This trend needs to be put to bed and covered up in heaps of blankets forever. You can have your bridesmaids wear matching necklaces, or heels, or hairstyles, just don't have anyone in the bridal party wearing those god-awful things.

If anyone shows up to my wedding adorning Keds, they will be escorted out, just like I hope this trend is by 2019.

I Respect Hailey And Justin Bieber For Waiting To Have Sex, Considering How Messed Up Dating Culture Is In 2019

In a world where we swipe right for the next best thing and move along from hookup to hookup, I have a huge amount of respect for Hailey and Justin.


Unless you live under a rock, you've probably seen Vogue's March issue featuring newlyweds Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber. The pictures are as stunning as you'd imagine considering the team of people involved beautifying an already beautiful couple.


Perhaps the biggest takeaway from the couple's interview was their sex life, or lack thereof. Justin Bieber opened up about how he was celibate for a year—which has taken the world by surprise—and that Hailey and Justin saved themselves for their wedding day after rekindling their romance back in June. Bieber told Vogue that he struggled with sex addiction and he attributes this decision to his desire to become closer to God.

"He [God] doesn't ask us not to have sex for him because he wants rules and stuff," said Bieber. "He's like 'I'm trying to protect you from hurt and pain.' I think sex can cause a lot of pain. Sometimes people have sex because they don't feel good enough. Because they lack self-worth. Women do that, and guys do that."

In a world where we swipe right for the next best thing and move along from hookup to hookup, I have a huge amount of respect for Hailey and Justin.

I think people forget that love isn't just a feeling. It's not lust, the honeymoon phase or chemistry. Love is a decision. It's a commitment. It's a promise.

People and fans all over the nation had something to say about the fact that Justin and Hailey sped to the courthouse to be married, and most comments were negative.

Since when is making a lifetime commitment a bad thing?

I'm sorry but if Justin Bieber can abstain from sex from a SUPERMODEL, I am pretty positive he has what it takes to stay married.

This generation is so obsessed with everything shallow. We are COMMITTED to being shallow. That's our commitment. How sad is that? We run from commitment, we run from emotions and we run from anything with any type of substance. Yet Hailey and Justin Bieber have committed themselves to God and each other, and people still find something negative to say.

It's not like Hailey and Justin thought it would be easy. They knew exactly what they were getting themselves into. Hailey said it herself, "it [marriage] is really effing hard."

"I'm not going to sit here and lie and say it's all a magical fantasy," Hailey said. "It's always going to be hard. It's a choice. You don't feel it every single day. You don't wake up every day saying, 'I'm absolutely so in love and you are perfect.' That's not what being married is. But there's something beautiful about it anyway—about wanting to fight for something, commit to building with someone."

So instead of being negative, we should applaud them, root for them, cheer them on because instead of going on the never-ending search for something better, they've committed to a never-ending journey of bettering each other with God as their No. 1.

Call me crazy, but I think that's beautiful.

To The Engaged Girls Prepping For A Wedding, Just Breathe

And just let God take the reigns.


I've been engaged for a little over two weeks and I'm ALREADY overwhelmed with all of the "when's the date?" "where's it going to be?" questions. Am I supposed to have everything planned already? This was literally the last thing I wanted to stress about before my last semester of college.

So instead of stressing, I chose to give it to God. The planning, the deciding, the scheduling, everything. I set it all down for the next week and chose prayer instead. I refuse to go into depth talking about it with friends and family. I let them know very nonchalantly, that my fiancé and I chose to trade all the wedding planning for a week of prayer instead. As of the past two days of prayer, I'm currently wondering why I never did this with anything else that was big and stressful in my life. Anytime I have the urge to look up dresses, get in contact with vendors, etc, I breathe and let it go. I drop it and seek out prayer and only then do I find complete peace and happiness.

It's allowed me to focus on getting back into the swing of things with the school as well as focus on my college friendships which will soon in just a couple months never be the same as they are right now. Prayer and surrender are giving me an appreciation for the college life I've created over the years and reminding me to not take a single ounce of it for granted.

Lastly, making prayer our go to before any wedding planning sets my fiancé and me on the right path. Instead of tackling unknowns and big financial decisions on our own, we're dropping the reigns and going to our Lord first; together. So if you're an anxious ball of stress because of wedding planning, maybe try putting it on pause for a week or so and spend that time elsewhere, in prayer, with our Lord. Put your marriage in the hands of the Creator before you're even married.
