This is Cody and he belongs to my brother and his family.  I think Cody is super cute, super fun, and just all around great.  But I don’t want a dog.  I really like playing with other people’s dogs, but I know that I do not want a dog.  Do not.

That’s kind of how I feel about a lot of the things I see in wedding magazines and blogs and whatnot.  I really like seeing all of the things that folks are doing, but I do not want to do them.  Do not.

I’m very excited about the things that The Mister and I have planned for our wedding, I think it’s going to be unique and fun and classy.  I think it’ll be different and I think that’s a good thing.  I’m not keen on decorating for the heck of it or because other folks have done it before…you know what I mean?  I don’t want to have our wedding be about other’s expectations of what “a wedding” should be.

But the other side of this thought is I still want people to have fun…and will they have fun at our quirky wedding?  I worry what they’ll think about the ceremony decorations, and the tea-length dress, and all of the other stuff that we’re doing that’s a bit different.  I know it’s weird to worry about things that 1) I can’t control and 2) we’re gonna do anyway, but I do.
