Hello lovelies! When it comes to celebrations, an experienced wedding-goer I am not, as I’ve only been to one until now – it was a proper ‘country’ wedding, and not in a trendy, fancy rustic way either. Lots of vodka, things fried in lard, bites of gherkins in between shots of yet more vodka and food APLENTY. It was a family affair, and I danced all night with all my cousins and uncles. Also, I was there with my dad, who kept introducing me to MY family members whom I’ve NEVER SEEN BEFORE. Very bizarre. But lovely.
As I’ve told you before, my friend got engaged (first from my circle of friends) and now I’ve been invited to the wedding – I’m so excited and happy for her as in my eyes, she was always the kind of girl who’d be fulfilled in family life if you know what I mean. She’s also one of the very few people I can honestly call a GOOD person and I sincerely hope she finds happiness.
Also, I’ve just asked my best friend whether she has RSVPed yet. To which she replied she has nothing to RSVP TO.
Luckily, we’ve known each other for ages (10 years in September and I still love the girl to death) so no awkwardness, but a 2 hour debate did occur, because we’ve all (the 3 of us) been best friends at school and I’m just SO CONFUSED. I really am.
To the point where I asked her whether she was SURE she hasn’t been invited. As in, maybe she forgot. Or misunderstood something. It shocked me so much, I asked this. But to be fair, it could’ve happened (to me, more likely, she’s too well anchored in reality for that). It hasn’t.
Anyway. Wanted to share THAT with you (and I can with clear conscience since none of the people concerned know of the existence of this blog) and also a lovely white bridal mani : ) I know, white, duh. But I think most brides go for white or french with some embellishments in the end – it’s that choice between being ‘you’ and a ‘traditional princess in white’. Nothing wrong with white, french or black with a blue dotticure (I’m SURE someone’s worn that for their wedding : )) in any case – it’s your day.
Wow. I’m an abundance of clichés today. How refreshing.
Are y’all experienced wedding guests? Anyone here has ever been a bridesmaid?
Truth is, I’m not usually concerned about weddings in general, dreams and aspirations about my potential one (as in, not at all, ever. I know, I’m such a romantic.), but now she’s getting married I can’t stop myself from thinking of the girl I met when we were 12 years old and thrown into a boarding school together and the woman I’ll see in white soon, ready to become a wife and mother.
Do you mind me rambling about things like that in between the manis? Or do you enjoy getting a glimpse into my odd brain?
You can be honest. I promise I’ll just have a quiet cry amidst the polish fumes in my room.
As for me, I love venting to y’all, especially since most of the time you comment and have PRETTY DARN CLEVER things to say to me.
PS The pictures of the girl are not from my Dream Wedding Dress Pinterest board as it does not exist. Instead, they’re from my This Wooden Background Looks Bizarrely Like The Refectory At My Boarding School and That Palace IS My Boarding School OMG and also, the third board called Double Take Not My School But Pretty.
In reality, I added them because I like the way her hair is pinned up.
