I went to the eye doc this morning because I decided I’d more than likely be wearing contacts on the big day, so I need to get my eyes checked and order new contacts. The doc was like, I only need to tweak your prescription…apparently that means a stronger prescription. *sigh* I’m sure I’ll literally be blind one day. The Mister always makes fun of how little I can see without my glasses (yes, he actually calls me four eyes) and I tell him that he shouldn’t tease the disabled.
After my appointment I got to thinking of all the stuff that I’ve been doing that aren’t actually wedding costs because I can use them before & after the actual day…but I probably wouldn’t have done without the wedding as incentive. Like these contacts (a years worth for $200) and the makeup I got ($200 for makeup and brushes) and this Invisalign treatment I’m doing. Though in all fairness, I started that almost a year before The Mister asked me to marry him…but that’s thousands of dollars for straight teeth.
Do y’all remember that movie I’m Gonna Get You Sucka…whatever, you know you watched it! I feel like I’m that lady who was full of fake parts. She took off her leg, her hair…she was all fake! Then I was like…oh my goodness, that’s me! If I took out my braces, I’d have jacked up teeth. If I took off my glasses, I’d be blind as a bat. And without all of that makeup…Lord, Lord, Lord, lol!! That’s not a good mental image. *shuddering*
So clearly these costs are well worth it. But even though these numbers won’t end up in my final budget numbers…that’s still money spent. So how do I archive it? I’d really like to have true costs at the end of this deal. What do you think?
