- Wedding: August 2013
So, my “wedding” will be on the 24th. It’s getting so close and I’m excited! The thing is I googled “wedding vows” recently just to look at the different ways people express them (okay I was bored) and I came across an almost disturbing post on yahoo answers…
So a few people asked “I eloped but is it still ok if I have a wedding a few months later?” … and HOLY COW! The snarky remarks and just plain mean comments were almost unbelievable.
Thing is yes me & my HUSBAND are already married. We’ve had the date set for August 24th since early this year. BUT.(OH MY LAWD HOLD ON TO YOUR SEATS) On March 7th, our 5th anniversary we on a whim decided to make it legal. I wanted the date to be March 7th, I’m OCD and I don’t care it NEEDED to be March 7th, but where I live it snows in March and I NEEDED to have a summer wedding.
Long story short, we let everyone know (honesty is the best policy), and I got my date on the paperwork and I’m STILL getting my summer wedding too. NO, I will not call it a “recommitment ceremony” and YES, I will wear my big ass wedding dress.
I guess I like to do things backwards, we had kids together (twins), got married, and now we’re having a wedding, only makes since that I keep my backwards life in order right? haha
Anyhoo, I guess my point in this post was not just about the whole eloping issue. It’s about EVERY issue. WHO CARES what another person thinks about YOUR wedding, because, its just that, YOUR WEDDING. If you want to wear a black dress, DO IT! If you want to have your dog as your maid of honor DO IT!
I think women as a whole need to stop being so judgmental and more supportive. Everyone is different, no need to bring down a bride to be. At the end of the day no matter what way you go about it if you & your groom are happy that is all that matters.
My wedding (uh oh I used that word again), is going to be awesome. I swim against the current and it only makes since that I do so on this issue too. Sorry but I’m not sorry. I like my “backwards” life. Never let anyone bring you down on what you want to do. Just BE YOU <3
Peace, Love, & Congrats to all the brides and brides to be out there!
