wedding bells

As Mr. KK and I near our 5 year anniversary in August, I can't help but think back to our glorious (read: sweltering) wedding day. And all the fun I had planning the wedding.

And, with my friend Leroy's nuptials on the horizon in less than two weeks, I've had more than my share of wedding-brain.

I was a very organized bride, much to my mother's dismay. In fact, right after the excitement of my engagement wore off, my mother said to me: "You're no fun. You have everything planned out in your head and in that binder. That's no fun for me."

NOTE TO MOM: you already planned a wedding...YOURS.

I loved everything about planning our wedding – scrolling online for hours looking at bouquets; tearing out magazine pages on fun place card ideas; dress shopping; booking appointments...everything.

My obsession with everything bridal hasn't ended. In fact, now I get my fix by watching "Say YES To The Dress!" on TLC.

And speaking of dresses, this morning I got this in my email, and I got a little teary-eyed:

(Have any of you ever witnessed this? Oh, the horror! It is absolute mayhem!)

It made me want to try on wedding dresses all over again. And walk down the aisle to Mr. KK.

Because there's still a bride-to-be in all of us; even after we've said "I do", I think many of us would say "I'll do it all over again!"

Weddings are so much fun and I'm with you on the obsession about wedding planning and all things related to weddings! Was it weird that I subscribes to Martha Stewart weddings for a year AFTER I got married?

I've seen the running of the brides on tv and it looks like complete anarchy! I would be terrified to be in the middle of that mess!

I love everything wedding related! I think my dream job would be a wedding planner. I love say yes to the dress too!

Say Yes to the Dress is one of my FAVORITES. I love when there's a marathon on- I'll totally watch 10 in a row. ;-)
