Good morning, lovelies!
Since S.O. got a nibble on job here, it’s brought a couple of things from the back burner to the front burner — like moving logistics, etc.
But, wait, weren’t we supposed to get married.
Like a while ago?
We put our nuptials on the back burner because it wasn’t practical.
When we first started talking about it, I just wanted to do a court house thing and a reception type thing.
But two years later I feel kind of differently.
A lot has changed.
I do want to do a thing.
Like a backyard ceremony, or a park, or hell, even a beach.
I kind of like the idea of renting a beach house for the weekend and getting married on the beach.
I don’t love the idea of catering. Mostly because money is a thing that actually exists and I don’t have much of.
I kind of want to a pot luck/covered dish thing.
Also, I didn’t want to do the huge wedding dress thing. I’d gotten a really adorable calf length A-line white embellished dress from Torrid, with a coupon, for $60ish.
The reason this tangent started is because I was watching fail videos last night… then wedding fails… the wedding dresses.
So I tried it on… and it needs to be taken in.
I started thinking of other alterations — I want a gold bow/sash/belt thingy. Also, I kind of want to add some tulle peeking out from underneath to bring it from calf length to ankle length.
Also I need to find shoes. Someone on here that I follow posted that they found their wedding shoes and I ADORE them and I wish I could find her post because I want those shoes. They were perfect.
I’m looking, essentially, for gold embellished flats… but I don’t want some giant thing on the toe. I want something tasteful, and shiny… and in my size. While perusing the interwebs, all the shoes I liked would not fit my huge German feet.
I’m going to Besty’s tonight for GoT and I brought it with me so she can kind of visualize what I’m talking about and we can make alterations.
Also… people. Who to invite? Who to include IN the wedding. Like I know who S.O.’s best man would be. I have a plethora of girl cousins to choose from, or I could have Besty as my maid of honor. I have a flower girl picked out. His cousin’s son could be the ring dude…
I dunno. This has become an interesting thought exercise.
