Someone else's post made me think of this.
Did you do anything non-Traditional in your wedding? If you're not married, is there anything you would like to do that's not "the norm" for your wedding?
For ours, I had the dilemma of who was going to walk me down the isle: my Dad (who I didn't get along with and hadn't seen in a year, but hey, it's the traditional role of Dad to walk you down the isle and give you away, right?) or my Step-dad (who I had grown to love and respect almost as if he was my actual dad)? I worried over this for weeks.
Finally, I decided that neither of them would. I would give myself away, sort of. Trevor and I walked down the isle together, instead of me walking alone or with my dad or step dad while Trevor waits under the trellis. A lot of our family asked if that was to show our equality in this marriage, and I guess it could work like that. I just didn't want to offend either parent by choosing one over the other, and there was no way in hell I was going to walk by myself while everyone stared at me. Besides, Trevor was my source of happiness and strength. Who better to walk with me into our new life than the person with whom I would be sharing it?
As for the shoes, I totally understand. I -hate- heels, but I never, EVER dress up and I figured, it's my wedding. I want fancy shoes.
Only regret, is I NEVER had a Bachelorette party with Bridesmaids. (Not a huge let down, just a bummer)
I'm actually relieved I didn't have a bachelorette party xD I'm not much for parties
