So I found a dress

....and now I'm totally having second thoughts about it. I've been up since 2:30am worrying. I think this is normal, though... big decision, committing to a dress and stop looking at the rest, special order non-return, bought and paid for.... etc.

I did have an a-ha moment when I tried it on, stood in front of the platform mirror, added an off the shoulder sleeve thing, lifted the hemline, and added a veil. "Yes, this is it!" I exclaimed and sort of teared up a little. I cry so easily all the time lately, though. I think I might be stressed out. Just a bit. My stomach hurts a lot when I think too hard these days.

Is it too late to just elope to the mountains and wear my blue jeans, sweater, and some boots or something? I mentioned this to my parents, and my Dad thinks it's an excellent idea, but I thought my nearly bed-ridden Mom was going to surprise us with some gathered strength and wallop him upside the head at the very thought. Vetoed. That bill never even stood a chance.

No, it isn't too late - but if you do, you'll be kicking yourself in the ass ten years or so from now. Weddings are a hell of a lot of work. I know that and I've never even been married - just had to be in a few of them. But when it's all said and done, it's probably worth all the hassle - at least once anyway. Memories, ya know, memories.

I've been in a pile of weddings myself. Wore a pink tux too. Ain't but one of them still together. At least as far as I know. Maybe the McKooze and Margie, but I ain't heard about him since he got shot in Dallas.

Wait, is that sort of like regaling the recently diagnosed cancer patient with stories of all the people you know that died of cancer? :-)

I didn't exactly mean it that way.

Thanks, y'all, I guess I'll try to look my best and that's the best I can do.

SaSob, I'm supposed to be having a small wedding, no hassles, no stress. I don't even want to imagine how stressful those huge events that I see on TV are. I'd have to be on medication.

A pink tux, Twc??? Lmao!

You know...I think my brother's first wife made the guys wear pink too. Must have been a 70s thing.

Please tell me the guy didn't get shot as his wedding. Did he try to escape or something and her Dad got after him?
