- Wedding: September 2010
I was obsessed. At first I was more in prom mode though and I had a prom binder full of decorations, dresses, hair styles, makeup looks, etc. I would ocassionaly throw a wedding picture or two into the back pocket of it. When prom time came I was the “prom coordinator” and boy was I ready after 8+ years of planning.
As soon as prom was over I started the “wedding binder.” My friends laughed and called me “Monica” all the time. lol. What can I say…I like to plan, and to plan well 🙂
another nope! i had a wedding dress for a barbie but i never ‘played wedding’ or thought about mine or anything. it wasn’t until i had been dating FH for about a year that I started thinking about it, because I knew I wanted to marry him.
ETA: And I was also on prom committee (we didn’t have coordinators, just a committee of people who were equally as anal about planning as I was).
not at all, so when he first said, “wait, what? you don’t already know, you haven’t thought about this since you were 5?”
i flipped and joined wb! lol. i have learned a whole lot, now. 🙂
No, not at all. I didn’t start thinking about marriage, much less a wedding, until I met my fiance.
Nope. I didn’t even want kids! In fact I swore against them the second I found out where they come out, until a few years in with my SO. Then I turned into one of those ladies who swoons over cute baby bumps and baby clothes, and secretly prays for a gorgeous ring and wedding day.
Nope! Not at all 🙂 I knew I eventually wanted to get married, but I didn’t sit and dream about how big & gorgeous my wedding was going to turn out.
Nope…in fact I was pretty much anti-marriage until I met Fiance. I come from a big family and always had to share a room, bathroom, closet space, etc. with siblings. I was looking forward to life with my own space and no other voices in the house but mine and my TV…LOL.
Then Fiance came along and I can say that he is worth some of the privacy that I will be giving up. I actually enjoy planning stuff…just for other people. I am not really a fan on being the center of attention…which is one of the reasons why we are keeping our guest list so small
Another nope. I’m surprised by all the no’s. I always thought I was in the minority of little girls who didn’t dream about it…. Just another thought the wedding industry placed into my head
I never dreamed about my wedding or dressed up as bride as a child. It seems like a lot of people expect that I have though. Every time I meet with a vendor, the vendor looks at me (and NOT my FI) and asks detailed questions about what I want/like. I usually don’t know.
Me too! I was much more into Legos than Barbies anyway 🙂 Didn’t really hit me that I had any wedding preferences at all until a few years ago.
I never did as a child, but I knew I was going to elope since I was sixteen!
No… and we ended up eloping. However, closer to the wedding I did obsess over the actual ceremony A LOT.
Personally – no, I wasn’t one of those girls who’s dreamt of her wedding her whole life.
Around the time we got engaged, my Fiance and I were working on getting a house and am not a fan of getting married on paper just to say you’re married for the legal reasons for being a homeowner nor do I want to elope. For me that was important for various reasons and I want my family (and friends) at the ceremony/reception when I say ‘I Do’ for the first time. 🙂
As for having ideas for the wedding though – they certainly were developed more after I got engaged though. haha.
