I’m always planning my wedding.
When I see a beautiful beach.
Or a beautiful dress in a magazine.
Or a lovely hairstyle.
I love watching wedding shows!
I’m addicted. Any kind of wedding shows. Cheesy ones, American ones, horrible British ones.
I love looking at other people’s wedding pictures. (Facebook = a gold mine! Lol.)
‘Oh that colour combination is nice’
‘I would never wear that dress with those arms!’
‘Bad choice of shoes’
I don’t just enjoy it. I revel in it. Its my favorite pass time.
I read wedding blogs (whatjunebugloves is a good one)
I attend wedding shows.
I must admit the one thing I haven’t yet done is buy wedding magazines. I refuse to actually spend money on this insane obsession. (Yes, I am aware that it is insane. LOL)
I have this belief that when I start spending money on a wedding I don’t actually have, then I have officially gone over the edge.
Until then, I only read the wedding magazines at the salon. Or at the Doctor’s office. Lol.
What is it about weddings?
Is it the idea of romance? Of love?
Is it the idea of being the centre of attention?
Being the most beautiful person in the room?
Having the people you love the most surround you and wish you well?
Being able to commit yourself to the person you love forever and ever?
In a unique way that represents both of your personalities and cultures?
Is it the bringing together of many generations? Grandchildren and aunties. Sisters and cousins.
Or is it the excitement of planning and fun associated with it?
Or maybe…………..it’s ALL OF THAT?
WEDDINGS ARE AMAZING!!
I love love love weddings!
I don’t know if I want a destination wedding. Or a traditional wedding. Or a home spun wedding?
Maybe I’ll have it on a beach. Or a beautiful Grecian hall. Or in the garden behind our house.
So many options! So many options!!
* Deep breath *
* Composes self *
The fact that I don’t have a groom as yet…
I don’t mind though.
I spend many, happy hours browsing and criticizing other people’s weddings.
Some people have shopping or sports.
I have Weddings.
