Almost every little girl begins dreaming about her wedding on the day she see’s her first bride. I say “almost” because there’s a certain few for whom the whole thing is completely off their radar. I fall in that category. I didn’t start planning my wedding until my mom said, “We really need to plan something” and was all panicky and crap. I would have happily eloped if it wouldn’t have killed my parents.
But there’s a trend? that has come to my attention. Planning the wedding before there’s even a groom. I’m not talking about the wishing, imagining, dreaming with your girlfriends kind of planning. I’m talking meeting with florists, dress fittings kind of planning.
I know, right!?!
I saw an episode of Say Yes to the Dress where the bride hadn’t even been proposed to yet but there she was, gown shopping. Guys, would this not freak you right out? Seriously, I’d like to know your reaction if you found out a girl you were dating was already making serious wedding plans.
Then there was this article in the New York Times:
If I were a guy, I’d be terrified. But maybe that’s just me. Since I was never into the whole wedding thing, maybe I just don’t get it. I asked Craig about it and before I even finished explaining he was shuddering and said, “No. That would freak me out. Is that what you call a doomsday prepper?”
It’s what I call jumping the shotgun.
Am I overreacting?
Guys, what would you feel like if you found out the girl you’re into already owned her wedding dress?
Ladies, would you do this? Can you explain why this might be happening?
