The Mister and I have been engaged for nearly four months now, and I kind of keep forgetting that we need to plan this gig and actually get married. We're both a bit lackadaisical when it comes to all of this wedding business. If it weren't for the wishes of our families, the courthouse would have already made me an honest woman and he whatever the fudge marriage makes a man (ornery?). People keep asking me about our wedding plans and it takes a minute for the little light bulb in my head to illuminate and me to remember that oh, yeah, I guess I should start planning that thing.
But I'm getting ahead of myself. I'm working on another "Matters of Opinion" post that I'll have up next week detailing my thoughts on weddings and the feelings I have about about my own.
For now, I've started to think about my vision for the day. If we're not going to have the simple and nonchalant little courthouse ceremony and forgo all of the pomp and circumstance the way I'd like, I'd at least prefer that the day really truly reflect us.
As I started thinking about it, I remembered a spread in an issue of Martha Stewart Weddings from almost two years ago that depicted ballet-inspired wedding ideas. I'm a die-heard performing arts fan--ballet specifically. Cheesy, but I feel most alive when I'm sitting in a theatre seat engulfed in the movement on stage. Revisiting that Martha Stewart Weddings spread started me thinking. Imagining. I'm all about the arts, and the Mister/SO/whatever nickname I can give him so as not to reveal his identity is all about science. Time to find a way to bring the two elements together for the wedding...if that's the direction we go.
Seriously, aren't these spreads gorgeous?
Have you been to a wedding where it was very indicative of the couple? Seen anything that hasn't been done a kajillion times before that was truly memorable? Talk/type to me, baby.
