I am already married, happily at that, but I have a friend that was getting married in March 2014...
For the past two weeks, every time I turn on the radio there's multiple advertisements for the bridal show at the fairgrounds this weekend. I have absolutely NO desire to go to it what so ever, but it does sort of make me miss the planning part of the wedding- the good, planning part, where I was coming up with ideas, developing themes, finding this and that to decorate with etc. The fun pieces- even though my wedding was absolutely nothing like I'd actually wanted.
Hearing the ads makes me wonder- if I could do it all over again, what would I do? Obviously, it would be with someone other than ex... preferably someone more on my wavelength and less of a groomzilla. I don't know what the future holds for me, but I'd like to think that one day I might meet Mr. Right and settle down- and not have it be a total farce like the first time.
As a teenager, my dream wedding consisted of a church in the Hebrides, or at the very least the Highlands of Scotland. Black carriage horses, burgundy roses, gold & ivory decor. My dream's still somewhat the same... certain parts have changed- I'd rather go with a hunter green, heather, navy & ivory color scheme than black & burgundy, but I'd still want the carriage, the horses, & Scotland. I think I'd want slightly more rustic, vintagey decor now though. As a teenager I was really into the opulent gothic style. The reception could still be the same though- something fun and low key in a local pub. lol. I'm all about just having a good ol' knees up in celebration- screw the stiffness of tradition. I'm pretty much determined that if I do ever remarry- this WILL be what I have. And I won't budge on it- not one bit. Perhaps I need to find myself a sexy scotsman...
So, what would you do?
