Things I want for my wedding:
1) A groom :)
3) Family and friends present
4) The dress
5) Good pictures
I honestly feel like I could live without it, but then I would be afraid that I felt like I had missed out. Seriously, I would skip the reception just so I could skip the centerpiece discussion. Also, how bad would it be to ask guests to bring a covered dish in lieu of gifts? And I don't really like the dance (maybe 'cause I've been to too many dateless dances...and I have no rhythm), so that doesn't seem too necessary.
Ahh, well. It's all moot right now. It was just a long night. Usually my friend's 20 month old son is there, so I spend time building block towers for him to knock down or something fun like that. But he was home with his dad tonight, so there were no distractions from the endless details. I really don't care whether there are going to be assigned seats or not!
I guess we'll have to see someday whether a prospective groom makes my heart grow three sizes toward all things wedding. I really think I'm going to hate the details even more if I'm the one making those decisions.
