Have you planned your wedding?
Many little girls plan their weddings. I remember conversations with friends at primary school in which they would explain exactly what their dress would be like and how many bridesmaids they’d have, what colour scheme etc etc. (The groom wasn’t really involved in the scenario, I should add, except for a vague “oh, he’ll be tall and handsome of course”)
I don’t remember having much to contribute. I wanted a nice dress, of course (I was VERY into dresses) but somehow I couldn’t actually imagine myself getting married at all. It just didn’t seem very ME, if you know what I mean. Even as a teenager – even in my early twenties – I still didn’t really believe I’d get married.
And then I met the right person and suddenly getting married seemed absolutely like ME. So I did. And I had the dress and the flowers (though not the bridesmaids – FAR too much trouble to work out who to choose!) and the cake and the music and the lovely food and the wonderful family and friends. And the groom. Not an afterthought at all, but the most important part. Awww.
And the reason I’m sharing this with all of you is that our very own Karen King has just got married! And she’s actually on her honeymoon RIGHT NOW which is why she’s not writing a blog post today (it seemed like quite a good reason to us). So I’m sure you’ll join me in saying a humungous CONGRATULATIONS KAREN! and we wish you and your husband much happiness in your future together
And so tell me, GHBers – have you planned your wedding? What’s your ideal dress? Tell all!
