- Wedding: May 2011
I am getting prepared for two weddings. One in Japan and one in America.
There have been many ups and downs. One thing I have become obsessed about is the dress.
When I 1st started looking I adored this designer, cultureshock.
When we originally wanted to have our wedding here in Japan we were looking for a nice Japanese garden.
He was going to wear a Hakama
It turns out that we couldn’t do that here because there was so much drama with the religous and sacred nature of the Japanese gardens.
Now that we found a beautfiul location I changed my dress image because I thought we would look silly with a Japanese style outfit in a poolside garden.
So I went for this image.
and he still wants to wear his Hakama
We were also planning to do a nice wedding in America with the family memebers that couldn’t celebrate here in Tokyo.
So of course a girl wants another dress
Who wants to wear the same dress twice and he didn’t want to wear a Hakama twice so. I bought another dress.
Lord knows what he wants to wear.
Hopefully this for a change.
So we agreed to do this and then the earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear disaster all struck 3 weeks before our scheduled wedding. Our date has now come and gone. We have to reschedule everything.
So lets just say that we are back to square 1.
My family is begging me to come home and have the wedding in America. They have picked out Japanese gardens for us to do the wedding there. The only thing is that my fiance’s family can’t all go to America. Thats about $1,000 per person.
However, this does bring me back to my original love since everyone’s trying to prepare us a Japanese garden.
Why does it have to be this way? Why do us girls have to match our venues with our dresses? Honestly, I had to find the venue before I chose the dress and now it seems I might have to reconsider the whole venue.
