I am at a loss about what to write today. Day 3 and already floundering. So the ever-present wedding plans came to mind.
Being a second-time bride, there is not a lot that gets me worked up. I did the traditional wedding last time and both Dan and I don’t want anything big. And the last thing I want is all the stress and running around I remember from my first go-round.
I picked the perfect man this time and that’s what is important to me. The rest is basically just details. But we both have family who want to attend and I suppose a party to celebrate us finding each other is a good thing.
We decided on Vegas to keep it simple. There are plenty of places willing to do all the work for us (one of my requirements) and Dan can have the quick ceremony he’s after. All we have to do is show up and say, “I do.” I hope.
I have the dress, the shoes, the jewelry, the hair (ready-made extensions–yay!) and a couple of variations on a veil so I’m pretty much good to go. Not to belittle all of these things at all. I love my dress, it’s sexy and comfortable at the same time. Shows off my assets (namely my boobs) and hides the parts I feel need to remain hidden (pretty much the rest of my body).
My shoes I adore. They are sapphire blue peep toe pumps with 4″ heels, crystal embellishments and two red hearts on the soles. Perfect wedding shoes as far as I’m concerned. Big girls can always count on shoes to make them feel good.
I bought invitations on clearance at Target before we were ever engaged. What? They were beautiful and an excellent deal. If Dan didn’t propose, I could always return them, right?
So wedding finery, check. Location, check. Invitations, check. MOH, check (giving a shout out to Shannon!). Everything seems to be right on schedule.
Check back with me in exactly four months from today and here’s hoping I’m still this calm and together about it all!
