I just tried on my wedding dress for the first time.
They sent me the wrong one. Well, kind of. The dress I took photos of was strapless. The dress I ordered was strapless. The dress at my parents house that I just tried on was not strapless.
But everything else was the same. Kind of.
When I put it on I immediately broke down and started to cry. The worst possible thing that could have happened, happened. It’s my absolute nightmare. MY WEDDING IS RUINED. LIFE IS OVER.
I was a little annoyed. But que sera sera, accidents happen. My wedding is still like five months away. The boutique obviously said they’ll fix it asap. But I’m kind of tempted to keep the sleeves for the ceremony and then ditch them for the reception. I’m using the term “sleeve” loosely here. They’re more like caps. Or something. I’m not sure.
My mom went into Dance Mom mode and suggested we fix it ourselves. She actually said the words “velcro buttons.” And “hot glue gun.” HOT GLUE GUN.
I was like, MOM this is not a dance costume! I’m not doing a tap number to Johnny Be Good in a recital at the Norfolk Senior High Theater.
Classic mom and her damn hot glue gun.
I still love the dress, it’s just a little different. And the good thing is I don’t have to get it altered at all. I should probably just stop eating pizza and stuff right before the wedding because it’s slightly hard to breathe in. Or maybe that was just nerves? But I’m pretty sure it was my pizza pooch.
Before I wrap up for the weekend I’ll end by telling you 42 years ago on this day my parents went on their first date.
My dad asked my mom out in gym class. She thought he was going to ask for her homework. But instead my dad swept her off her feet and asked her to go to a community college basketball game with him. If I could insert the crying laughing face emoji here I would. Instead I’ll show you a pic from when they went to prom together.
My mom’s hat. My dad’s bow tie. THEIR HAIR. It’s all too good. They’re ridiculous.
I wrote about how to have a good marriage here, based on what I’ve learned from them. Read it for a chuckle. Have a good weekend, everyone. March is almost here!
