Something Old, Something New…

I was thinking of this little bridal rhyme, a friend’s daughter is getting married in the fall. That’s what got my mind on this rhyme and the whole huge endless planning that is going on with this wedding that I have heard so far. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and a silver sixpence for her shoe! Oh my goodness, it really is just a superstious rhyme…Not to the bride she is doing it all by the book! Who will know if she indeed does have a silver sixpence in her shoe I ask you? Well, maybe if she starts to limp a little bit! 😉

Come on kind readers, did any of you ladies have one of those lucky sixpences in your bridal shoe? I know I didn’t, Dave and I had a good laugh over the thought though. Autumn didn’t for her first marriage we won’t speak much of. Well, except to say she didn’t have a lucky silver sixpence in her shoe. When she ties the knot with her darling man she won’t be having any lucky silver sixpence in her shoe. The Twinnie chuckled over the fact actually when saying no to any type of object in her bridal shoe.

Back to the bride who is marrying in the fall… Her plans are really in full bloom, she is in love, he is in love, too. They are just so happy, but everything has to be just perfect…She will make herself sick otherwise! Sorry, that wasn’t meant to be at all disrespectful…But insisting on a silver sixpence for her shoe? I know they can be purchased, I think she already has hers. The garter thing is also up for debate I hear tell, too…The perfect one has not been located yet. I remember finding mine very early, wonder if the perfect one was easier to locate back then? I don’t recall the type of flowers and all of  the bride to be’s choice, but they may need to be flown in from somewhere I heard…For real? The bride is also wearing a strapless gown, so she is working out like crazy on those upper arms. They, too have to be just perfect…But they already look fine, honestly they do. It is so not necessary to be stressing over them…Is she realizing this? Sadly no.

I don’t remember all this frenzy of sorts going on while planning Dave’s and my wedding. It was a happy and joyful time for both of us, we didn’t have a large wedding…Because we chose not to. But it was very nice, it needed quite a few plans, but not like this. Isn’t there a point when people really do get a bit carried away? I am not meaning to rain on anyone’s bridal parade, honest! I just think this wedding is getting just a wee bit over the top…Praying the bride doesn’t turn into one of those dreaded bridezillas, too! It could happen, these things do tend to occur when people get stressed.

I have to ask any of you kind readers who are married…Did any of you have weddings like the one I am describing? Do share, but only if you feel like you want to…I know everyone is different in these matters. Just kind of curious, so is the Twinnie…This has made her happy her someday wedding will be  so much calmer, peaceful and fun to be had by all! 🙂 🙂
