I think I’ve hit what Salma accurately called ‘Wedding Limbo‘ this week. I feel slightly out of sorts, and it seems to be laborious or dull tasks left to be completed (this week it’s licking over 50 stamps and addressing envelopes for invites), and when everyone asks me “So! How are the wedding plans going?” I feel quite reluctant to admit that everything’s pretty much done, and I don’t know why I don’t feel more elated?
This week I’ve had to buy cream thread for a slight ‘touching up’ sewing job for my wedding dress, aforementioned invites, a stack of phone calls and emails to the organist, videographer, tailor for the bridesmaid dresses.. I had to swap (but keep) my oh-so-beautiful wedding lingerie for a less-than-gorgeous flesh coloured ‘invisible’ set as you could see the first set underneath my dress, and to be honest I want to shift at least half a stone before the big day.. 2 months to go and counting. Nothing very exciting really?! Just all of the final few things to sort that no-one really wants to do! On a lighter note I was in a taxi and speaking to the driver a few days ago who mentioned that his daughter was also getting married in July, but it was an Asian wedding (he didn’t mentioned which nationality) and that he and his wife had to plan a THREE DAY celebration, and in that time were feeding over 1,500 heads plus all of the other wedding rituals and celebrations.. so maybe I should count ourselves lucky that we haven’t signed up for more!
