I’m visiting my parents in Maginia today. No, that’s not a typo. “Maginia” is the way my adorable 3-year old niece pronounces Virginia. I’m not writing about her today, but I thought I’d share that little tidbit. She was here this weekend and I thoroughly enjoyed her.
My sweet little niece, prego sister, and my mom took me wedding dress shopping on Saturday. I didn’t have any plans to buy a dress in Maginia, thinking I’d have to order one and get the alterations done there and it would be a little difficult since I live in Nashville. However, in the second shop we went into, they were having a big sale. If a customer found a dress on the rack that fit and was the right color for them, they could walk out with it in hand for an extra-good price. I happened to be that customer this time. I found a dress that makes me feel like a princess, in the right color, in the right size, for 1/3 of what I had been willing to spend. When I walked out in that dress, the best niece in the world pranced toward me, hugged me, and declared that I looked “fabulous.” WooHOO! A Kleinfeld bride I am not. Off the rack works for me. I’ll have a friend in Nashville do the very minor alterations that are needed. I leave Maginia, dress in hand.
We also chose and contacted our bridal party, picked out our invitations, settled on wedding colors (winter white; metallic gold and silver), and secured a photographer. All this done without quite having nailed down the date yet. I sure hope it works out like I’m hoping!
We have so much more we need to do. It’s amazing to realize how much goes into planning a wedding. And a honeymoon. And finding a place to live/moving. And furnishing a new home. Holy moly.
One last detail I’m considering… What will I do with my blog when my name changes? “Kimberly Wenger’s Blog” won’t really work any longer. I’d love to hear your ideas and imput.
