My Perfect Wedding
Christmas Day is usually a holiday mainly observed to commemorate the birth of Jesus. For non Christianity followers it is a day to exchange gifts, decorate houses and for Santa Clause. For me, Christmas of two thousand eight changed my life forever. This is the day my now to be husband kneeling down on one knee, asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. His proposal was short sweet and sincere. Without a doubt I gracefully replied “Yes, I will.” With many new emotions racing throughout my mind, I couldn’t help to wonder, when our big day would be.

I was informed, I needed flowers, center pieces, a cake, music, a photographer, favors, a seating chart along with a booklet of papers I needed to fill out and have returned to her a month is advance. I had to choose what my guests would eat, where they would sit and what type of champagne and H'orderves to have served. I was extremely overwhelmed but figured I can do this. How hard can it be? It was for only one day. Well that day turned into the biggest event I have ever experienced in my entire life. As I look back on those stressful months now, I wish I did accept help from others. Now that there was a venue, I needed a photographer. I did some searching and before I knew it I found two that agreed to shoot our wedding from the moment we awoke until the sun came down. Next was the choosing of flowers. I had no idea what kind of flowers were in season, what was expensive and what was not. Needless to say, we spent a few thousand dollars on them. Music was a main priority for this event. There must be a DJ so my guests would be entertained and of course so my husband and I can have our first dance. Luckily, an old friend of mine contacted me willing to host our party.
With numerous circumstances happening, dress shopping for myself was limited. I was overly exhausted due to the large amount of duties that were involved with planning a wedding, I easily forgot about myself. There was my dress, hair, nails needed to be done, makeup and shoes.
