It's crazy when I stop to actually think about it. I got together with my best friend since grade 9 this week, and we went through her wedding albums, over my flowers, her dress, my wedding dress (which was her dress) and I looked at the pics of her and her husband and I kinda went... WOW that's going to be me!! and I couldn't picture it... the white dress, the flowers, I just couldn't see it.
McHubby is now probably hyperventilating after reading that so I should probably clarify. I can see our lives together. I can see getting up in the mornings and making breakfast. I can picture family dinners, and movie nights. I can picture every aspect of our happily ever after. But the ceremony... the posed pictures... that's where I'm having trouble.
Deciding to "elope" for our wedding was at one point a tough choice. But I was reminded a couple of times this week that it really is the right choice for us. Between people wanting to "help" by doing things their way, or by imposing their opinions on us, and the formality of a "normal" wedding... I know that our wedding will be everything we've wanted it to be :)
BUT... what about the presents?!?!?!?!?!?
