Anyone who has gone through the planning process involved in throwing a wedding ceremony and reception knows the involvement required to get the job done in time, according to budget, and to meet the specifications of the happy couple. Most brides and grooms will take upon the responsibility of planning and conducting necessary tasks to pull off a perfect wedding on their own. Sometimes friends and family members will get involved in helping, however, one bride took this route a bit too far when asking others to provide services for her special day.
A recently noticed Reddit thread first noticed by Yahoo has the entire story laid out for readers to ponder. A woman told a story about a wedding that she had attended where she was recruited to do work in getting the preparations in place days before the wedding was to be held. She was not the only one, however. All the guests who were going to attend the wedding were involved. This at first was in good faith, after all, if a bride and groom need help, why not lend a hand? After the first day, guests had a different idea about the help they were providing.
This was mainly because the bride was not helping herself. In fact, she was seen sitting on a couch, lounging throughout the day while her guests were taking care of the important functions necessary to have a lavish wedding. She would be seen browsing Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram posts, trying to find more ideas that she wanted incorporated into her event. The guests would then be expected to work on these ideas so that they became realities.
This continued on for four straight days from 6am until midnight. Each guest was put to work doing specific tasks. Some people would be working on the landscaping, making sure that flowers were in the right locations, that the lawn was meticulously groomed, and that there were no obstructions in the pathway to be used by the wedding party. Bushes were trimmed and floral arrangements were primped so that they looked as beautiful as ever. A gazebo was even constructed from scratch.
Other guests were in charge of linens, making sure they were all laundered and ironed so that they were presentable. Table toppers were made, wedding favors were prepared, and flowers were arranged. This was all done by the guests. Food preparations were taking place well in advance of the wedding so that a spread made to impress would be available….however, those that would be eating the meal were already present with the preparation work, so there was no surprise factor involved.
When the date of the wedding finally arrived, guests set up the back yard with chairs for the event to come. After all the preparations were complete, the wedding was absolutely stunning. The food was amazing, the view of the back yard was unflawed, and the celebration went by without incident. The guests had done all the work and the bride witnessed the entire thing from a chair. Most guests would not take the time to be bossed around for hours upon hours and days upon days. The bride must have had a lot of helpful people in her guest list, and she should be extremely thankful that they had done all the work for her to have a perfect day.
When it becomes time for one of the guests to have a party of their own, will the bride be as willing to step up and reciprocate the favor? Time will tell.
The Case of the Ever-Growing Nose – Medical Kindness in Action
Young people are constantly afraid how they look will reflect on their social status and getting through teenagehood. So imagine how fearful and frustrating it could be if, beginning with the most socially impressionable phase of a young life, your nose started growing uncontrollably. This is exactly what happened to one young lady from Louisiana, Pamela Ichard.
Pamela grew up with a very normal childhood. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary and looking at all her school photos, nobody would notice anything out of the ordinary. However, at 15 and going through her worst phase of acne, Pamela realized her facial changes were not temporary and something more serious was occurring. The acne was more severe, and the actual surface of her skin was transforming around her nose. Everyone thought it was just a bad case of acne that she would grow out of, like every teenager before. Unfortunately, that was not the case.
What was actually happening to Pamela was a skin condition known as Rosacea. It would progress into most of her adult life, but as a teenager she had no idea. Pamela simply thought she was unlucky kid with bad acne. In her 20s though the difference in her nose became apparent. No longer did she have the thin cute nose of her childhood. Instead, her nose was already larger, rounder and more pronounced. This became very evidence as Pamela entered motherhood and had two children. What she thought at first was just a skin reaction turned out to be permanent disfigurement of Pamela’s nose. In addition, the rest of the skin around her nasal area and cheeks changed texture and become rougher and uneven. As her children grew older, Pamela resigned herself to a more and more pronounced facial feature without any solution or cure.
By the time Pamela was 46, she had lived with her form of Rosacea for more than 30 years. Specifically, her severe condition is known as Rhinophyma. The exact reason why it affected Pamela is unknown but the physical deformation is obvious, and in her case literally on the front of her face, a practically unavoidable situation in terms of being seen. This affected Pamela psychologically, changing her temperament from a happy young person to a chronically unhappy adult. And it was not as if Pamela didn’t seek help; she tried multiple doctors and ten times as many prescriptions. However, none of the drugs or medicines prescribed had any effect. Instead, her condition just seemed to get worse.
Finally, being a 2016 case on a TV show called the Doctors, Pamela let the entertainment world see her condition on the off chance someone medically might have a solution. It worked; Dr. Ann Zedlitz agreed to take on the case surgically and help Pamela. The results were amazing. Pamela finally had a normal-looking nose and face again after three decades of suffering. And best of all, the surgery was provided for free. Since the surgery Pamela has begun enjoying her life again and, best of all, she’s smiling again.
7 Of The Most Restricted Places On Earth
Life is so open these days that you can barely contemplate the notion of privacy. There was, however, once a time when you could enjoy a day, or even a week, without the neighbors knowing what you had to eat or drink. While most establishments and communities are becoming more transparent by the day, these seven areas are steadily holding to the notion that less information and exposure is more in this world.
1. Club 33
This secret spot was originally a restaurant in Disneyland. Now, it serves as the ultimate hotspot reserved only for the significant people in the world. One hundred people allegedly applied for membership to the exclusive club but not before showing proof that they had $25,000 in the bank to pay for an association.
2. Vatican Secret Archives
Italy has many beautiful spots and the Vatican Secret Archives is undoubtedly one incredible place to visit. The problem is that few, if any, will ever get to see the extensive collection of publications since the Pope has to give his stamp of approval for every person who wants to stop by for a tour. You can only view books and articles older than 75 years old, but it would still make for a great trip.
This town in Bashkortostan only has 17,000 residents and doesn’t invite visitors to tour its region often. Secretive Russian companies have serious business in Mezhgorye, which is why the federal government strictly monitors who comes in and leaves.
4. Snake Island
Brazil is such a beautiful place, but not every part of the quarters is accessible to the general public. Snake Island is off limits to human beings due to the island being inhabited by the world’s deadliest snakes. Defy these orders, and you could die.
5. Area 51
Area 51 is quite possibly one of the most controversial places in the United States. The space is officially regarded as a military installation post, but several theorists have thought the spot to be the breeding ground for UFOs and other out-of-this-world phenomena.
Sealand is not officially recognized as its own nation, but it kind of is a territory to itself. HavenCo is just off the coast of Suffolk, England, and allegedly holds some of the world’s most pertinent data. You kind of need to be invited to the getaway to see all of its wonders. It wouldn’t be wise to hold your breath waiting for an invite, though.
Bahnhof is also recognized as Wikileaks, Sweden. You know, Wikileaks, which led to a serious uproar from which the world has yet to recover. The good news is that this spot is located in the white mountain of the country, which is beautiful to no end. The scary news is that Wikileaks is surrounded by armor that makes its capable of withstanding a nuclear attack. Would you want to work in an institution as such?
It would be great to visit any one of these places but don’t count on a ticket to view any of these spectacular spots.

Nanny Jumps in Front of Vehicle To Save A 2-year-old
According to a recent study, there are about 1.4 to 4 million nannies in the United States. Some nannies are paid as much as $1000 to $3000 a week. Nanny is a career attracting many people thanks to the pay package. Parents should be cautious when getting a nanny.
Getting an exemplary nanny is an uphill task. You have to conduct thorough and maybe lengthy interviews and even do background checks. No parent wants to take risks when it comes to their little one.
When you finally find a good nanny, you can only hope that they will treat your child like it was their own. However, some parents just get lucky and somehow land on that fantastic nanny who adores kids. It could also be chemistry, where the nanny somehow fits so well with the family.
Courtney Davis and Bill Wolkoff, the mommy and daddy of 2-year-old Fox, are such lucky and grateful parents. This is after Fox’s long-term nanny Caroline Maurer literary jumped in front of a car to save little Fox’s life.
Caroline Maurer had been their nanny since Fox had been four months old. On that Tuesday afternoon, she has taken Fox for a walk around the block. When crossing an empty intersection, a car spent through completely ignoring the stop sign. Caroline immediately sensed danger. Screaming, ‘Stop! Stop! Stop!’ She tried pushing Fox out of the car’s way. Fox had been walking a little ahead of her. She realized that she had to act fast, the driver was not slowing down. She jumped in front of the car just in time!
The traumatized Caroline recounts how her hands were crushed as she and the front bumper were thrown several feet ahead. Fox got just a few scrapes, nothing short of a miracle! Unfortunately, Caroline sustained several injuries. She suffered broken bones in her hands, arms, and wrists. Her extraordinary courage and sacrifice saved little Fox’s life.
Davis and Wolkoff only have good things to say about Caroline. She is part of their family now! They set up a fund to pay for Caroline’s physical therapy. Caroline, who had been a student could not continue with her everyday life. She could not even work due to the damage to her hands. Thanks to physical therapy, her hands are almost recovered now.
It is not easy to find such a nanny. Would you jump in front of a car to save someone’s life? One can’t help but wonder. Caroline took courage to a whole different level. “She deserves a reward,” people shared their views on social media.
Most parents would pay through the nose to have such a nanny. There are many nanny agencies in the U.S. If looking for a nanny, ask for the nanny’s employment history. Check for red flags, like reasons they left the former families they worked for. Of course, choose a nanny agency that has a good reputation. There some very unscrupulous business people out there.

What would you do if you were Kate? What would you do if you were Angelo? Would you have given away the dog? Would you accept to take care of a friend’s dog when they are away?
