Brace yourself: When you hit your 20's, you go to a lot of weddings!
I love weddings! I love trying to catch the bouquet and eating delicious wedding cake! I love the sweet toasts and how radiant the brides always look. I love smelling the flowers and always tear up a little during the father-daughter dance. I love seeing my guy friends in suits--they look so dashing. I love the Frank Sinatra and Michael Buble songs. Weddings rock!
I've never given a ton of thought into planning my wedding. Many of my girlfriends have had their color schemes picked out since they were five, known what kind of flowers they want, subscribe to bridal magazines, and have already narrowed down venues in their heads. Not me.
I want a simple wedding. I'm not entirely sure what that means because weddings are significant events and require a lot of planning, but I know I will not ever care about what font the name cards are typed in (I mean, unless it's Papyrus) or to which degree of transparency that little sheet needs to be that goes over the invitations. Now that I think about it, why is that even there, anyway?
There are two things I think would be cool, though. The first is that I'd love for the song Yellow by Coldplay to somehow be incorporated into the night. Coldplay is one of my favorite bands and Yellow was the first song of theirs that I heard. The lyrics make my heart ache and always remind me of how loved I am by Jesus (...for you I'd bleed myself dry...). Maybe I'll walk down the aisle to it someday. Who knows?
The other thing I thought would be really cool is centerpieces of stacks of books. I went to a wedding earlier this year, and these were at all the dinner tables. If my future husband is on board, we'll copy this idea.
Oh, and I really don't want to dance at my wedding (or, ever), but I'll just have to get over it, I suppose.
That is all...
