I’m getting MARRIED!
On June 7th 2011 I will become the wife to my wonderful fiancée Chris. You may think… “WTF?! Isn’t that a Tuesday?” Well you would be right, it is indeed a Tuesday.It will also be our fourth year together as a couple. The way Chris asked me to be his “girlfriend” is super cute. Since I am a 12 year old at heart I told him how those “Will you go out with me? Check one- [ ]yes [ ]maybe [ ]no” notes were so cute. At the time we lived about an hour and a half apart. Chris decided to write one of those out and send me a picture message of it. I know it may seem lame to do it over text, but it was totally sweet and made me smile and blush all day. In October of that year we found out we were pregnant and by December I had a promise ring. I guess it makes me a bad fiancée because I don’t know exactly when we got engaged. It just happened one day. And here we are coming up on year four.
We aren’t really in a position to have a wedding so instead we’re going to the courthouse. I always thought that I was so okay with it. Pshhh….I didn’t need a big wedding and everyone there to be excited to marry the man I’m in love with. Why try and kill ourselves by spending money we don’t have or that could be delegated to something sustainable like a newer car. It just isn’t in the cards for our family anytime soon.
As of tonight, I am 1 week and 3 days out from getting hitched. Today I decided to look for a dress. Nothing fancy, just something cute and cheap so I could look nice. We don’t have a photographer or anything but my MIL will be there so she could snap a few. I was telling Chris how much of a pain in the ass it is to find a plus size dress for under $50. He thought it would be funny to make a joke about just wearing jeans and a t-shirt. I almost started bawling. Apparently having a wedding is something more special to me that I though. Only one person in my family showed any interest in coming at all. Kinda shitty I think but whatever. Also I, for some reason feel like we’re are missing out on something special for couples. I know that everyone is different. Chris thinks weddings aren’t that important to him. As he says “You’re paying for people to celebrate with you!” I can see that but for reasons that are unknown to me, I feel a little let down by it all.
Now that I have cried and been comforted by my love, I will be fine. We actually just found someone to marry us at a local landmark so I feel markedly better.
Did you have any doubts or fears about your wedding? Did everything work out?
