When I got engaged last May, I wanted only one thing,
To get married at an exotic/different location. Just the two of us.
Many people have found my dream wedding weird and have made comments how they would want their family around them. Then I need to explain that this is not my first wedding (or my fiancÚ's) and I already had the big, traditional wedding that cost a small fortune. Plus neither my family, his family or us can afford too much.
Then there is the stress of the guest list, trying to please everyone and the negative comments I received from my own family that comes with planning a wedding.
Not something I want to go through again. AT ALL!
Last night while my fiancÚ was working late, I thought I would try on all my wedding things. I slipped the dress on and then realized that I couldn't zip it up myself. Well this will be a challenge. I tried everything I could to get that dress zipped myself. Nothing worked. Having my family and friends helping me get dressed on my wedding day would certainly fix this problem. Looks like I may need to get creative on that day. Does hotels offer this as a service? lol
It hasn't been the first time during the year, that I had some slight second thoughts about our wedding plans. When my Mom paid for my wedding dress and watched me try on countless dress, I felt sad because she will not get to see me all dressed up that day. I also expressed to my fiancÚ that I was afraid I would regret this in the future. Maybe this was a bad choice.
I can't change my plans now (everything is paid for). I am just having some wedding woes that normally would make me reach for a McDonalds Big Mac. I know this is exactly what we wanted and is the best choice for our situation. But sometimes a girl gets second thoughts!
On another note, I have to admit that I felt really great in that dress last night, despite that I couldn't zip the darn thing up. I can't believe I am getting married in 10 weeks!! Yikes!!
