- Wedding: October 2013
this isn’t a vent, a request for advice, actually, i’m not even sure what this is going to become. i just want to share. (and it might become long)
so after i got engaged in february, my mom who had already been planning everything in her head was able to put things into action.
when discussing my bridal shower, which my mom wants to be a surprise, my Maid/Matron of Honor made sure that i was ok with a surprise. i’m pretty easy going and didn’t care either way. (my mom threw me an amazing 29.5 surprise birthday party because i didn’t want to celebrate my 30th birthday in a big way.)
anyway, so i’m fine with it being a surprise, i’m guessing the shower is going to be anywhere in july or august. i am planning on buying the dress i want to wear then giving my outfit to either my mom or Maid/Matron of Honor to have for me to change into whenever the day comes.
a few days ago i was out to dinner with one of my bridesmaids when i mentioned i had started looking at white dresses (what i plan to wear to my shower). she asked me why i wanted to wear a white dress and say not pants. i commented back that i was sure we weren’t going horseback riding and being the bride, a white dress would be perfect. then she said, why not a pink dress? i replied back, i wanted to wear white.
then, i got to thinking. i think i know my theme, which i know they already know. i think it might be a barbie theme shower, which actually would be pretty freaking awesome. i played with barbies when i was a kid and also collect barbies even though i haven’t bought one in a few years for running out of space.
from as young as i can remember til i was about 24ish, i hated everything pink and ruffley(sp). then somewhere after age 24, i started liking the color pink. at 31, i still wouldn’t call me a girly girl but from time to time, i like to be rather feminine.
i found a dress online at nordstroms that i would love to wear to the shower and surprise them (i’ll have to see if i can try it on if it is still available). i think my mom would be in shock if she saw me in this dress that is she thinks is SO not me.
