You gettin' hitched soon? I wouldn't be surprised.
I've recently come unto that age where everyone I know is either getting married or having a baby. This year alone, I've got four weddings to attend (that means four new dresses, yay!). While I'm all about celebrating the love of two people, what makes this age hard on me is the "When are YOU going to get married?" inquiries I'm starting to get. In fact, just this past weekend when I was visiting home, the pastor of the Korean church I attended from the age of 9 to when I moved away at 22 stopped me in the hall to talk nuptials:
Pastor: Oh Kimberly, it's so good to see you.
Me: You too, Pastor.
Pastor: When are you going to get married?
Me: Oh, I don't know. Maybe later. I'm in grad school right now, working on my masters.
Pastor: Oh, OK. I will pray that you will get married after you finish school then.
Me: Oh, gee ... Thanks.
But alas, I know there are a many a bride out there in Charlotte who is busy planning her magical day. My suggestion to you would be to check out the Bridal Showcase, happening this Sunday, Aug. 7, at the Charlotte Convention Center. This year, they celebrate their 10-year anniversary.
Here you will see more than 100 wedding professionals as they showcase their products and services. If you need ideas for fashion, photography, honeymoons, flowers, catering, bakers — or whatever else it takes to make a wedding happen ... you know I have no idea, with my shamefully unmarried self — this is the place to be. A grand finale fashion show will be presented by Men's Wearhouse and David's Bridal.
Time: 12 p.m.-5 p.m.
Tickets: $12 at the door or $10 online (Buy now and save $2)
