It's funny now to look back at the different stages of wedding growth in my life. That's right, there are stages. The first was flower girl, which I never was. This is probably why I seem to be stuck in limbo in stage 4. I'm like a child who wasn't breast fed long enough providing the nutrients I need develop. What's stage 4? We'll get to it.
The second stage was bridesmaid. This was where I started to think about my own wedding. I planned it all. It would be Great Gatsby style, on a long stretch of green grass with a live band and lots of martinis and champagne.
The third stage was my engagement. I dreamed, I planned and then I learned my future Husband didn't want to wear a tux. Bye bye Gatsby, hello Mexico.
And the fourth stage, in which I am stuck, is the wedding itself. I love weddings. I loved mine, I love yours, they make me happy. I love the coordination and the details and the meaning behind it all. Sure it's expensive and a waste to some, but not to me. There are ways around everything. Even county zoning when I start my own venue ;)
Sometimes, I start to move on to the fifth stage of weddings. Where I start to notice the cute little children dressed up for the wedding, and how those little girls stare in awe of the beautiful bride . And I think to myself, "aww I can't wait until I have cute little flower girls ." But then I flashback to THIS FRIDAY, and decide to stick to stage four.
So there you have it. The reason behind my inability to move beyond weddings. I missed stage one and never fully developed.
Oh well, I think my sister and I made pretty cute wedding guests...maybe even showed up a few flower girls with our dance moves....
I actually don't think this was taken at a wedding.
We know the rules, only the bride wears white!
