A gathering of ideas, rants, reflections leading up to the big day

The bride bride

In contrast to yesterday's post, here are a few traits of mine that make me a bride-bride (as opposed to an anti-bride).

I love attention to details. As is the "in" thing today these days, I am trying to focus on a few little details that will make this wedding ours.

I love my dress and bought a veil. I swore up and down I wasn't going to wear a veil. My feminist ideals opposed the thought of a veil and all that, but I bought one and I'll wear it happily on my wedding day! And as for my dress, I totally had a bride moment when I tried it on and knew it was the one.

I'm having my dad give me away. I know that contradicts my feminist views I had about the veil, but I feel like it is a special moment between my dad, fi and me.

I secretly do want a bachelorette party and showers. I just don't want to have to plan my bachelorette or put anyone out financially.

I am still stuck on the penis necklace. I am picturing a bachelorette party or shower scene (in El Charro? with lots of paper flowers? and Salvador strumming and stepping? and everyone clicking margarita glasses? and...) Then the image of that necklace pops up. Anti-bride, bride-bride, aren't we all a happy kaleidoscope of everything.
