Before you go thinking it’s my wedding, let me put aside that notion. Mr. Tall Girl is proving himself quite elusive, although believe me, I’m still on the lookout for him. (He’s out there. I think. Maybe. I hope?) I’m SO VERY proud to say I’m standing up for my sister, Heather and her fiancée, Noelle, this fall in Minneapolis, MN. Woo-hoo!
Now for those that don’t know me, this will be my 12th wedding. Yes, you read that right 12. I have been honored to have been in 12 weddings so far in my life. I love weddings. Period. Love them. I love being a part of them. I love standing up, dressing up, waving as I walk down the aisle (at this point, I’m very comfortable walking down the aisle), the presents, the champagne, the wedding speeches, the tears, the dancing (I dance…a little), and THE BACHELORETTE PARTY! Or parties, plural, as I believe a girl should really celebrate her pending nuptials multiple times.
The hard part about being in a wedding has always been finding a dress long enough. In the past I’ve gone to many, well-known bridal stores and they charge an extra $100 for the length in my dress. But my sister is making is easy. She said, “Get whatever you want.”
There will be two of us standing up for my sister (so far, anyway) and we’ve started looking for dresses. Yay for being forced to shop for pretty dresses! Crap – did you see the girly-girl in me just come out?
Another tough thing about being in weddings is…the height difference when you walk down the aisle with your partner. Some weddings it’s a big deal. Others, not so much. I don’t think it will be a big deal in this wedding since we are all very tall. And my sister, while a perfectionist, doesn’t care about this.
I am so incredibly excited about this that I could just pee my pants! We have a shower coming up and a bachelorette party later this summer/fall (he he….look out MPLS/St Paul!). To celebrate love…and I get to wear a pretty dress.
Now, let’s get working on my date for this big event. It’s never to early to start thinking about my ‘Arm Candy’. ;)
