Remember when I was all “Woe is me! I didn’t have a big wedding and so I will never truly experience the craziness and stress of planning one–and I’ll never get to wear a big white poofy cupcake dress!! *sob* *sob* My life is over!!!” ?
SO I decided I was going to take the first steps in planning my “big” wedding. And of course that started off with the dress.
While I loved it, I still didn’t feel like I was a bride. Going dress shopping was supposed to accomplish one of two things:
- I would try on the dress and feel like a princess and realize that I cannot live the rest of my life without wearing a big white poofy dress and I absolutely must have a big wedding or I’ll regret it for the rest of my life!
- I would scratch the itch of trying on a wedding dress and realize that I am perfectly content with the wedding I did have and anything on top of that would just be excess.
Well, after trying on dresses, my mom and my aunt and I went to lunch and proceeded to talk wedding colors, invitations, food, church, music…and I kept trying to picture it, but I just couldn’t. This party wouldn’t really by my wedding. I’m already married. And truth be told–I LOVED my $40 Macy’s dress I wore…I felt like a Grecian goddess.
So after all that–I realized I was perfectly happy with what we had. I guess sometimes the grass isn’t always greener…
But I’m sure damn glad I got to try on dresses.
