So I got married a month ago, and even though it was a “destination wedding” in some sense, I was lucky enough to have about half a dozen of my closest friends fly out from California for the wedding. However, the life of an ex-pat is not entirely easy, and if we’re being honest here, I don’t have many close friends here in Berlin.
Even so, three ladies here decided to throw me a bridal brunch to kickstart my wedding celebrations before everyone else arrived a couple days prior to the wedding. So two weeks before the wedding, they reserved space at the nearby Cafe V so that we could lounge around and enjoy a veg brunch together. They even decorated the area and brought me some presents (beauty products and, ahem, some sexy stuff). All in all, it was a relaxing way to say goodbye to my summer work and have some stress-free moments before all the wedding chaos began.
