In exactly one year’s time I will be a married lady. Yep, that’s right in, well 364 days now, I am getting married to the love of my life, Tom. (blargh, I don’t normally get that mushy.) Needless to say I’m pretty excited about it and I really just want it to be here now.
We’ve been pretty organised and most things are already sorted out and planned. People seem to be pretty shocked by this most of the time because we started sorting things out from the end of last year.
We’ve booked our venues, food, music. Tom’s outfit is totally bought and I’m going to start looking for a dress when I head back to Liverpool in a couple of weeks. Which is exciting and this weekend I’m going shopping for bridesmaids dresses.
I definitely don’t understand the Bridezilla phenomenon, why would you turn into that person? No one wants to help you out if you’re rude, surely? I’ve been stressed out only twice so far when it comes to wedding planning. Once when a prospective vendor was particularly rude to me (unsurprisingly, we’re not using them) and once when I was waiting for a dress to be delivered and the company lost it. Two small things that, because we got organised early on, didn’t amount to much. All of our decisions have been made after a little research and a conversation between Tom and I. Why people say it’s stressful, I don’t know. Maybe it’ll get more stressful nearer the time but, in my opinion, at the end of the day all these extra nice things we’re doing to make it a good day are just that, extras. The important thing is that I’m marrying the one man who puts up with me, looks after me and loves me even though I’m a fruit loop. I’m a very lucky girl and I love him very much.
I’m so excited but also pretty nervous. I’m not one of those people who tries to be the centre of attention and, believe it or not, I’m pretty self concious so I’m not sure how I’m going to cope with a day when all eyes are on me (and Tom). I’m going to be the one in the white frock at the front so it’s not like I can blend into the background until I feel a bit more comfortable. Uh oh. I’m sure it’ll be fine.
Sorry for this rambling post. It doesn’t really have a point I guess, I just wanted to share with you that on Friday 5th September 2014, I’m getting married.
Do you think things will change after we become a married couple? Do you want me to share any of my wedding plans with you? Let me know.
