Thoughts + Questions from a Bride to Be

January 24, 2018

Me, nonchalantly posting a picture of my ring

The Dress:
  • Why are wedding dresses all cut to fit girls who have a lot flatter stomachs than me?
  • Should I go on a wedding diet? The answer: yes. Will I? No.
  • Also, why would anyone want to spend that much on a very uncomfortable dress that they're going to wear once?
  • Why do movies depict dress shopping as magical and beautiful when really it's sweaty and awkward?
  • How many places is too many places to register?
  • Does anyone I know that is rich actually love me enough to buy me an almost $400 KitchenAid stand mixer?
  • Why do I suddenly want a KitchenAid mixer now that I'm getting married?
  • Why does everything Kate Spade have to cost so much?
  • Okay but how much did they spend on those center pieces?
  • If I post my own pictures on Pinterest, how many pins do you think they'll get?
  • If I send an invite to Andy Grammer, do you think he'll come like Taylor Swift did with that one random fan?
  • Alternatively, if I send one to Taylor Swift, do you think she'll come like she did with that one random fan?
Setting the Date:
  • Do girls literally revolve their wedding date around their menstural cycle? Because I tend to avoid white always, whether anywhere near my period or not.
  • What if some of my best friends can't come?
  • I'm sorry to all the people in Texas that won't be able to make it.
The Photography:
  • I can't wait to instagram these pictures for the rest of my life.
  • This is honestly the only thing I care about other than my fiancé.
  • How do I include my cat in our photos?
The Reception:
  • I don't even like cake.
  • Also, I know I'm marrying the right man because neither of us want cake shoved in our faces.
  • I've had ideas for a wedding hashtag ready for months.
  • I've wanted Chipotle to cater my wedding since I was like 14 (I'm sure my hometown friends can verify).
Marriage Prep:
  • How many self-help books can I read in the next few months?
  • Will the fact that I studied marriage and family in college help me at all to have a successful marriage?
  • I'm excited for pre-marital counseling!
  • Can I just wear my natural hair?
  • What if I chip my nail polish the day before I get married?
  • Who wants to do my (natural) makeup for me?
  • Do I want to get my hair dyed before engagements or wait until closer to my wedding?
  • Woah. I'm going to be someone's wife.
  • Do any of the boys that I dated before Jamison care that I'm getting married?
  • Does my cat care that I'm getting married?
  • Again, how do I include my cat in this whole wedding thing?
  • Wow, he's so cute.
  • Wow, I love his family.
  • Wow, I can't wait to marry him.
  • Wow, I'm marrying my best friend.
  • Wow, I must love him a lot to be able to fart in front of him.
  • Wow, he's the hottest guy I've ever seen.
  • Can't wait to kiss him for the rest of my life.
  • My forever boyfriend!!!!
