Sorry about this, but I have to hijack this space for sharing some of my delirious excitement about my wedding. I looked at some things online and it appears that people spend CRAZY lots of money on their nuptials. Pumpkin-style carriages, wedding coordinators, 5 layers of cake on the bride's head, lavender-coloured bridesmaid dresses - do you want a destination wedding or a home wedding? Have you remembered to hire a private jet for the grapes from France that will be flown to Melbourne and turned into wine that will spell out your groom's name when spilled? I say it works for some people and I would really love to attend a wedding like that, but for me.... no.
So we have come to the conclusion: we will have an outside wedding in the midst of winter in a garden somewhere in June featuring fairylights and handwarmers and champagne drunk out of picnic glasses. There won't be bridesmaids and there won't be 80 people. There will be 30 people we care about. So we can talk to them. Then there will be dinner. Because this bride is always hungry.
But that being said, if you know of any gigantic bridezilla wedding I could gatecrash, please let me know! I do love those kinds of parties.
