When I was a child I was not very happy with Barbie. I never spent time dreaming of the day I would get married. What dress I would wear, what would make my day "perfect", or who would be my prince charming. Today I am getting married and I can't convince anyone that I just don't have any plans on being a "Princess for a Day". The idea that, this is "my day" and not "our" day to begin another journey in our lives together still baffles us both.
This blog is about spending less time on the day of the wedding, creating that perfect day, but spending time on creating that semi perfect partnership in marriage. We will only look back on that day as a mear mark in the timeline of our relationship. All the taboos, all the stories about how different it will be when I get that piece of paper and how much I "will" change will be addressed here. I will also cover all the drama I am expecting to happen as a bride-to-be. I am sure to unnerve some people about why I won't have flowers, "nothing dying at my wedding" or how I will either rent, borrow, or get a biodegradable dress. I still can't imagine having that thing hanging in my closet after wearing it for only one day and never being able to wear it again.
This isn't an anti marriage blog, this isn't a poke at all the women that dreamt of their wedding day. As Whoopie Goldberg said she was married several times because she liked the "party". I would say " I love the idea of marrying that guy that reminds me every day that we are great on our own but together we are one unstoppable team.
