Say Yes

winter wedding shoes

 

Weddings. Weddings are on my brain because last night two of my dearest pals said, "yes"

 

They usually happen in the summer months. Why this is, I haven't a clue. Fall and winter weddings seem so much more magical, to me at least. Firstly, there is an undeniable "something" about autumn. I will argue that it has a mystery about it more powerful than spring. It's like ultimate anticipation. You know what's about to happen. You know the leaves are going to change and then be dead. You know the snow is coming, or maybe just rain and grey. Nonetheless, it's like anticipation for survival mode. I feel like all of the body's sensations are heightened by an awareness that lay dormant when the living is easy. It's this very fight or flight feeling that knocks the nerves about.

 

It's the perfect time for a wedding. Plus, if you get married in fall/winter, all the more merry a honeymoon jaunt to a tropical locale is! Everyone needs a solid excuse to turn to a friend and say, "You know, I really need some new resort-wear." Unless your last name is Trump or Hilton or Gates, you probably don't have resort-wear at the forefront of your brain. The other part of a winter wedding that is outstandingly more amazing than anything is the fact that you can wear an amazing floor length white coat, or like my friend, a giant white feather boa. Maybe it's the color combinations that throw people from a winter wedding. Maybe there is a disproportionate number of brides set on their colors being hot pink and orange. (to my knowledge, I've only met one person with such a wedding color scheme).

 

All in all, I'm just saying that winter weddings need some more credit. However, I hope this isn't your wedding chariot:

I'm having a winter wedding! I'm getting married in January! I agree there's something special about autumn--it's definitely my favorite season--but I have always wanted a spring wedding. My colors are baby pink, soft yellow and olive green with a garden theme; we'll have a gazebo over the cake and an arbor arch behind the wedding line. My fiance and I decided to make our own little spring in the middle of winter. I can't wait!

Yay! I love that my wedding was in January. It snowed in the morning, and I was dressed like an ice princess. There's nothing better.

That was my wedding! Inches and inches of snow, and we drove away in a bug! Not Herbie though...

I love fall and winter weddings! I dream of one day having a wedding overflowing with white pumpkins.

Bah! I'll always regret that my August wedding did not make a regal white coat possible.
