I'll blog about wedding dresses I've been thinking about too. The only part of me I really like are my ankles up to about mid-calf, and I'm short, so I think a shorter dress would probably be best. Plus, Jon and I just want a semi-traditional wedding (emphasis on the semi).
But yes, my mom is getting married in June. I like the guy she's with. He's a little weird, but that's ok. She likes him, and that's all that matters. Seriously, my mom stayed single after my parents divorced for 16 years before she started dating again. She always joked that her virginity grew back in that time. She really deserves this. And I'm going to be her maid of honor... but this shindig is going to be very casual, so I get to wear whatever I want. Yay!
I have to give her and her fiancee credit for doing it their way. Mind you, I think their way is a little cheesey (it's going to be Indian - as in Mumbai/Bollywood/Ravi Shenkhar Indian), but it's going to be ultra-casual. They're going to roast a pig over an open pit instead of having a traditional sit-down meal. They're trying to attain a spontaneous and fun kind of atmosphere instead of something where you go and just want to leave...
I want that at my wedding. I want the guests to be having a blast. Which is why we're thinking about setting up Karaoke instead of doing the traditional dj or band and dance floor. Good idea, or stupid? Whatcha think?
