Not much going on here but some exposition, but I will go ahead and post my throwback blogspot entry for giggles. Things that I said months ago should not be held against me. =^.^=
So now a bit more of the major points of the plot are starting to emerge. Though I'm sure the majority of you will be able to fill in the gaps as we go. This story really isn't meant to surprise you, so if it does, then, well, that's just an added bonus.
I have to write a bit of an anecdote here. Because most if not all of my readers are male, some of you may not be entirely aware of how truly important weddings are to women. Everyone is different of course, but for myself, and the vast majority of women I know, it's understood that a girl's wedding day is the ONE DAY in which a girl has every excuse in the world to be treated like a princess. To be doted over. To be celebrated. Now, it's a debatable as to what weddings are all about, or what values they entail, but to many it can be described as the capstone of womanhood, or perhaps more fairly, the capstone of romantic relationships.
The whole idea can be spun as a bit antiquated, and even sexist, in some circles. Conversely, it can be OVER valued in many cases. Many people place extreme importance on the ceremony, and the marriage itself can be taken for granted--at least some say so. I'll reserve my own judgment here, and let you hopefully be entertained by my characters' take on the issue.
