One of my friends is getting married soon. No, this isn’t like when Clinton inquired about the POTUS twitter handle and said “I’m asking for a friend”
I am happy for her because she is having the small, intimate wedding that she said she wanted, despite the pressure from the family and friends who have tried to force their ideas on her. It’s a garden ceremony and I’m still trying to decide between a few dresses and shoes options that are dressy but won’t sink in the grass.
I don’t get invited to a lot a weddings so this must be why I’m so looking forward to this one. I left Jamaica right at the time a lot of my high school friends were starting to settle into long term relationships and a lot of the friends I made here in New York were already married when I met them, or are still unmarried like me. To still be able to count the number of weddings I’ve attended with both hands and still have fingers leftover, I hear, is a rarity. But I’m anticipating adding another wedding to my cherished memories this weekend.
What is the last wedding that you attended? Are you in favor of big to-do’s or small, intimate ceremonies?
