Briding Out, One Last Time...

I loved all your unveiled feelings-about-veils comments yesterday. And cuz it's Friday I thought I'd round the week out with two last (unless you tell me you want more!) wedding photos -- one more featuring "the costume," left. The beauty in black full length gloves is filmmaker Ilana Trachtman, a dear friend from college who reminded me during her toast that I once stole a Ding Dong with her from The Village Corner in Ann Arbor.

The photo below is of Marco and me and our gaggle of flower girls. Because matter how cynical or intellectual one might be, it was very hard for me to resist inviting every little girl in my life to be a flower girl. I stopped at six.

Marco, always looking out for me, fears I'm going to lose my feminist cred if I keep wedding blogging. But I beg to differ! I'm still the same ole Girl with Pen. Ok ok, so your Girl is a little wedding obsessed right now. Thank you for indulging me.

How ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE that you had six flower girls! They're so cute!

I had two flower girls the last time, my daughter and her best friend.

Being a feminist doesn't mean we can't like "girly" things and write about them. We aren't flat characters in our own lives after all.

D, LOVE the picture and so great to see Lani! I'd love to see more wedding pix myself.

Meant to respond yesterday, because I'm with you on the veil. I thought I would hate wearing one -- and knew it wasn't going to cover up my face going down the aisle -- but in the end I loved it. Wearing it gave me an unexpected sense of privacy, if that makes sense (since it's sheer!), like I was both protected in a bubble but also available to be seen. It's hard to find the words, but it was the most "bridey" thing I wore and also made me feel the most different, but something about it enveloping me, being in my peripheral vision, felt like it kept me in my own world in a way I liked. Hard to explain!

LOL!! I love that your wedding made the NCRW newsletter. FAB!

Oh, and we didn't have any flower girls! I didn't have any lil girls in my life. *pout* So having 6 is fine. We averaged out.
