I'm not a superstitious person. At all. Now, I'm not going to show you my wedding dress. I mean, some things need to be kept sacred. And a surprise. Speaking of surprises...look at my wedding shoes! I just love them! They're not super comfy, so I have a feeling I might be looking for some dyable ballet slippers, but they are the perfect color!! For something blue, doncha know.
I realize that I'm really skipping ahead. I realize now that I haven't really mentioned much about the wedding here. I think I feel a little shy about it, and also I know that not everyone wants to hear about it all the time. I'm so surprised when people are excited to talk about it with me. I'm trying unsuccessfully not to be bride-brained. I think deep down I'm too proud to admit that I am prissy enough to be concerned with all the frou-frou details that go into a wedding. All this from someone who thinks spending that much money on ONE DAY is ridiculous, and soooo not my style. Then you get sucked into the "Well, when else can you wear a white full length dress." and "People are coming from a distance, so it better be a sit down dinner."
I found myself standing in a bar with my friends both male and female and when we got to the 7-minute pause that supposedly happens in conversations, I absentmindedly say "So, do you think I can have brown bridesmaids dresses and black suits?" I promptly had an out-of-body experience and shook my head to clear away the tulle from my brain.
I will try to write more on here about the wedding process, because I hope every little bit will help other people be more sane about their weddings.
