Let me introduce you to a wedding planning game changer. Something that, when embraced, will lead you to ditch wedding stress and worry and instead help you focus on what matters the most.
The fuck it bucket.
The f*ck it bucket is where you put all of the jobs and things and things to buy you thought you would get around to doing before your wedding but have run out of time or care. These items are tasks are things you thought would be important at the early stages of planning but now…bye!
This episode was inspired by a Reddit thread with couples shared lists of everything they were throwing in their f*ck it bucket. It's a cathartic exercise will help you just let go and move on and it's very funny.
It's not to say that these tasks and items aren't fun and great if you have them it's more about allowing yourself to say 'it doesn't really matter and no I won't notice'.
Here’s a bunch of things that really don’t matter. You can chuck them in the fuck it bucket and move on
It’s basically a whole other event and it’s held at peak wedding stress time. If you can’t afford it or do care. Chuck it.
You are tired, hungover and the thought of being ‘on again’ exhausts you. Ditch it.
Silly hats and mustaches don’t maketh a wedding. Can’t be bothered finding all of this stuff. Forget it.
Let people book their own hotel rooms.
This isn’t the Oscars. Fuck it.
Bridal Party Gifts…gifts in general
Too many gifts! Next, we’ll be getting people a ‘thanks for RSVPing gift’, oh, wait, that’s the whole freaking wedding
Ask any couple how often they read their wedding guest book. 0 Zero fucks.
Unless these come in a package deal, you don’t need them
Booze is booze. They’re fun but a good vodka soda gets me just as excited as a custom jobby
Are we still doing this?
I like to look at these on Pinterest but by God, who has the time?
Ikea make very nice paper napkins in the best patterns and color ranges
Boutonnieres and flowers for the mothers
If you aren’t ‘flower people’ ditcheroo
If gathering people to watch you cut a cake isn’t on your bucket list, you know which bucket you can put this in.
Garter or bouquet toss
No one needs to see a guys head up a ladies skirt, removing a piece of lacy elastic. No one.
Return address stamps
There is no scientific proof that this will make people return RSVPs quicker.
You will never use them again. Never.
Let the ladies wear their own shoes or pick shoes they will wear again. Haven’t they suffered enough?
I think I’m over the surprise, the couple have been doing dance lessons for 6 years routine
Any sort of getting ready pyjamas or robes
TBH can’t be bothered
I like these, especially the fun ones but I assure you, the wedding will not cease without a cake topper
Just ask them, with your mouth…voice, you know what I mean
You don’t need personalized ‘Bride’ and ‘Groom’ glassware for your wedding. The wedding dress and suit gives it away.
Do you have things on your fuck it bucket list? I'd love to hear about them! x
