Today I began my search for the perfect way to show off my man on our big day. I am not that big into fashion.. I mean, I wear the same thing to work everyday (thank goodness!) and the only reason I know what a cummerbund is is because I was in marching band in high school where we sported silver metallic ones for our competitions (good times!).
So as I opened the Mens Wearhouse website and began to delve into the various styles (Modern, Classic, Romantic, or Traditional) and color coordinated looks, I felt a little intimidated. Jeremiah and I are pretty simple. We keep it low key and uncluttered and streamlined. It works for us. So the fact that you can't just get a basic suit to rent (Since I have already purchased the perfect Apple Green ties for the wedding party) is a little frustrating. And although I know that if I asked him to he would wear the whole gettup with the vest and suspenders and the this that and the other, I just don't see the point. He looks fantastic in just about everything, so can't we just keep it simple?
As we get closer to the wedding day, I can really see why people start to think about just eloping! No wonder the wedding industry is still thriving, despite the economy. Everyone is trying to out do each other with the cutest centerpieces, best favors, photo booths, candy buffets, and a million other things.
So, as a resolution to myself I am going to keep it simple from here on out. I'm not going to obsess over making sure that we get the perfect table runners to go with our theme, the perfect color of paper for the escort cards, or the cutest decorations for the buffet table.. it's all going to come together in the end and the most important thing is that Jeremiah will be my husband, and I will be his wife. And that is what makes me smile about it all <3
