It's September. It's everyone's favorite wedding season month (and my birth month too). A lot of friends and acquaintances, have gotten married in
this hot, steamy month. And now that Wedding Season 2012 is approaching,
my romantic mind (damn, you, romantic mind) can't help but linger over
our wedding. I've probably told you this a billion times already (and
you've probably just smiled and nodded, and maybe even unbuttoned your
shirt collar a bit from feeling a tad bit suffocated), but I'm one of
those cliched girls who's pictured her wedding day since she was 6.
was it like? Did I make a lot of demands on you - I promise I'll
really, really try to not to be a Bridezilla (Is that show even on
anymore?). I do, however, have always had some ideas in mind, including:
know those romantic proposals? Did we have one of those? Did you take
me to a beautiful hillside in the fall or spring? Did you have my
favorite root beer laid out on a blanket? Did you give a speech about
how we are going to spend the rest of our lives together and you
couldn't see yourself marrying anyone but me? Did you say that my
disability is the last thing you care about and that you see the real me
inside - and always will? Did you whip out a cute little ring for my
cute little finger?
Or did I take the reins and propose to you?
Because you know darn well that I'm not THAT old-fashioned. I'm not
above asking you to marry me. And trust me, it'll be more romantic than
you could ever dream of.
Here are some things I've always thought a wedding should have...did we have them?
--A simple ceremony, preferably outside in a garden
own written vows (and don't worry...I can write yours for me if you
need me to; I won't refuse to marry you if you're not a wordsmith)
--A limo for me, complete with a root beer and apple juice mini-bar. Oh, and some of those bags of Chex Mix, please.
Did I wear a dress like this from Style Me Pretty?
--Someplace quiet and exotic, where it's just the two of us. Istanbul? Rio De Jeniero?
--I can guarantee it's going to be the best honeymoon you'll ever have
Until we meet...
