  1. Pinterest
    Down the rabbit hole of engagement ring, flower arrangement, dream venue pinning. Make all boards secret so friends can't see you planning your fake wedding.
  2. Blingterest

  3. Pestering
    The significant others take the hardest hit. "So...does your friend need a plus one?" "Would your mom freak out if I didn't have bridesmaids?"
  4. $$$
    Where is the money for this magical wedding coming from?
