At an engagement party last night, we were talking to several friends who were at our wedding ten years ago.
One of them told me a story I had shared with her when Canetto and I were planning our wedding (and that I had completely forgotten about).
Back when I was shopping for a wedding dress with my mom, we had different opinions on the style of dress I should get. She liked me in one dress that I just didn't care for, and tried to convince me that it should be a contender by saying, "but it is so feminine and so romantic..."
To which I replied, "Mom. There is no place for romance at my wedding."
