... Ding dong! The bells are gonna chime.
Pull out the stopper!
Let's have a whopper!
But get me to the church on time!
Ok, I'm not getting married in the morning. And there'll be no church. But I am getting married quite soon. After almost eleven years together, a house and two kids, The Partner and I are making it official. We've booked the register office and given notice and will be getting married on 14th September.
It will be the World's Smallest Wedding with just me, The Partner, our two girls and a couple of witnesses (who will be staff working in the town hall so we don't even know them). Perfect, no fuss, my-kind-of-wedding. Most of the organising is done (because there isn't much to do with it being so small) - rings have been bought (just waiting for Partner's to arrive in the store), register office is booked and paid for and the girls' dresses and accessories have been bought. They aren't having traditional bridesmaids dresses (nothing is traditional, not even my ring is an 'actual' wedding ring). They've picked the dresses they want to wear and I'll be doing the same. No 'proper' wedding dress for me (might not even be a dress).
The best part is the holiday afterwards, which we booked a couple of weeks ago. It's not technically a honeymoon as we'll be taking the kids and we're going for a family resort rather than romantic. I can't wait!
