Ok so... we were looking at eloping in May of next year, but we were talking about it yesterday and my fiance said, "We want to get married, we should just get married. Waiting until next May is silly." He suggested we as a random date generator on the internet to pick a new date (we're geeks, remember) so we did, and it picked 5 dates, ranging from August 2014 to May 2015. To my shock, FI said, "the first one sounds good to me!"
So... we're getting married August 21. Like, in two months. So much for losing a million pounds before then, I'm aiming for 10.
We'd been looking at various places in Vermont with elopement packages, and we found a place that does "Made in Heaven" packages... with the ceremony in a hot air balloon. FI and my daughter are both over-the-moon excited, and I admit I am also. My quandary, though, is what on earth do I wear? The innkeeper we spoke with recommended against a wedding dress and veil for various reasons (wind, climbing into the basket, and fire being 3 of them), and I don't think I have time anyway, but I'd still like to look nice! We also get a private dinner afterwards (well, for 3 since my daughter will be with us) so another outfit for that would be fine as well. I work at home, and live in jeans and/or shorts, so I admit to having absolutely no clue. I never wear makeup either, so I don't know what to do with that, either. Help? Any suggestions would be welcome! I'm still reeling over the fact that we're eloping from our elopement.
