Yesterday evening, I went out for a quick 6.5 km run, and was done in 35 minutes. It was fabulous! I felt strong and I ran it fast (well, fast for me)! It’s runs like those that remind me why I enjoy stompin’ the pavement so much.
I’ve spent the morning looking at wedding blogs. Wait a second, who am I? Just six months ago, I wouldn’t have been caught dead looking at anything wedding related.
Then, 3 months ago, I turned the big 2-4. And bam! Like a ton of bricks, it hit me. I do want to get married at some point… Shocking!
Now, I’m currently rockin’ a single status, and my “big day” is nowhere in the near future. (And I’m definitely not looking to speed that up, or have a “shotgun situation” if you know what I mean!) But there’s no harm in looking at wedding stuff! After all, my summer is jam-packed full of weddings, and one of my favourite “I can’t help but do it” things is to pick out what I really like about a wedding. The last wedding I went to, just over a week ago, the cake was hands down the winner-winner-chicken-dinner! My little cousin’s wedding is just 2-weeks away, and I’m so excited to see what her and her hubby-t0-be have put together!
One thing I really love is white bridesmaid dresses.
I know, I know… It’s seen as “bad luck” for anyone other than the bride to be decked out in white. But puh-lease, if your marriage doesn’t work-out, I don’t think it’s because someone other than the bride wore white to the wedding!
In fact, in some countries (like the UK — think the recent royal wedding), it’s traditional for the bridesmaids to be in white. It’s believed that by the bridesmaids wearing white, they help to ward off evil spirits… Like a white army!
I also like the idea of a touch of white in the bridesmaids dresses — keep the bride the center of attention, as she should be!
Another thing I adore…
Fascinators! Those “wacky hats”… Love them! I’m obviously living on the wrong side of the world…
What do you think about bridesmaids or attendees wearing white? A-OK or big NO-NO?!
