Kate Middleton Quits Her Job to Focus on Nuptials

Planning a wedding while working full time can be difficult for any bride, let alone one who knows that the whole world will literally be watching her walk down the aisle. But is it enough to quit your job?

Perhaps seeking to avoid distraction, Kate Middleton has vacated her position at her parents' party supply business in order to focus full-time on wedding planning. Ironically, her job responsibility was to organize parties -- no doubt invaluable experience while arranging to marry the future King of England.

And while there are no statistics on how many brides leave their jobs to exclusively wedding plan, we here at iVillage have received the occasional email alerting us to the news that such-and-such bride-to-be is vacating her current position to focus "full-time on [her] upcoming wedding." (That's a direct quote. We found the news so shocking the first time around that we'll never forget it.)

Brides the world over manage to do their jobs while simultaneously debating the merits of satin versus chiffon. Sure, it might entail some hushed conversations at the office when you need to talk to a "client" about the "project," and yes, you would definitely want the blush-colored roses, er, um, the "proposal we've previously discussed." Or that trip to the "off-site meeting" might have taken longer than expected because you had to detour to the dress boutique -- oops, we mean "to avoid traffic."

For many brides, it's not even an option to quit her job. After all, without that income, it's going to be awfully hard to pay for the open bar.

How would you juggle a full-time job with wedding planning? Chime in below!
