My Brother's Wedding-Need Help!
Monday, May 02, 2011
I found out from my brother that he and his fiance have set a wedding date for the middle of September of this year. Of course I am super happy for them, I consider both her and her daughter to be family already.
But as I hung up the phone, my mind started going off in 20 different directions. I have to take off work; I need to do this, this, and this; I need to find a dress; I need to lose weight to fit into a cute dress; money, money, money....
To be truthful, I have not been to a wedding for a good seven years. All my friends got married out of high school or a couple years down the road (except me). The last wedding was a week after my mom died of cancer, and I didn't go to the reception because I was a frickin mess. I honestly don't remember what I wore or really the day.
I'm also not what you would call a wedding fanatic. I have been known to hold back laughter-I know it is sad-during the service. I don't know what the heck is wrong with me. Never one to plan my wedding when I was young, you will at least be happy to know that about ten years ago I was flipping through one of my friend's wedding mags and found a beautiful lace wedding dress that I would love to wear someday if I EVER get married. So I cut it out. That's as much as I've ever thought of it.
So the wedding is in 4.5 months and I need to STEP IT UP. I found two dresses that I am kinda sorta looking at for the wedding. I have to find one that can be worn in a church and later at a golf club/dinner place that night. I also have to find one that a sweater of somekind or a short blazer can go with, just in case our MN weather decides to be cold. Here are the dresses I have picked out so far:

Does anyone have any suggestions for me? Things I need to do? I am excited, though.
