Lesson Learned

With 5 months to go today, I feel it's appropriate to share a lesson I recently learned.

While doing my daily blog-reading, I came across a post on a wedding blog about a woman shopping for her wedding dress.  She had posted a picture of herself in my dress. 

Her comment was, "It looks like Barbie threw up on it."

say WHA?!?

 I immediately began worrying that I would look like a little girl playing dress-up on our wedding day.  However, as I continued reading and saw the other dresses that she loved and I would never be caught dead in, I realized that it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks.  We are all different and have different tastes. You can't live your life worrying about what other people think and not thinking about what is going to make you happy.

Moral of the story:  You will be happy on your wedding day if you make choices that you and your significant other are happy and comfortable with.  If someone thinks your dress appears to have Barbie's puke on it, SCREW 'EM.  It's not their day. 

But, hopefully, that person is not your fiance.
