I have just broken the wedding rules. I actually might have broken several in one go. And you know what? It’s amazing.
So what have I done that could set the wedding industry after me with torches and menacing farm tools? I bought a dress. I bought a dress without having tried on a single dress. I bought it on an impulse that this was the right thing to do for me. I do not have a theme picked out for my wedding. I don’t even have a venue picked out. Actually, I haven’t even visited a single venue, nor talked to a caterer, florist, DJ, or any other person who whom I’m suppose to speak before buying a dress. I have only a vague idea that we will get married next fall and I will knit myself a red lace shawl.
I’m sure some of you are balking right now. But you know what? I’m pleased as punch. I found a dress I’d been eyeing on the web that retails for $350 for $80 on ebay. I love my dress and I love that I spent what feels like a reasonable amount of money for it. And now I don’t have to worry about finding the time to get dress shopping. I can just day dream about how pretty I’ll look at where ever it is that I end up getting married.
Seriously, this is amazing. After my ebay dress success, I feel empowered to take on the rest of this wedding craziness because I know breaking those crazy wedding rules is ok.
