Does anyone here watch Platinum Weddings? The tagline is: “Most little girls dream of the day they marry. But some little girls dream big.”
Dream big is right. Some of these dream weddings profiled cost over $500,000. One of them had a $1.2 million price tag.
Anyhow, I caught one of the episodes about a young bride who is walking down the aisle in a $8,000 gown, and she bought her mom and her grandmother to see the dress at the final fitting. And all three women started to tear up because she truly looked beautiful.
And I thought of my grandmama. She passed away last winter. I try not to think about her too much, because it still sucks.
But when I saw that segment, I felt sad. My grandmama will never see me in my wedding gown. I mean, I make enough money to buy a $8,000 dress now (not that I can pluck down the money without batting an eye). But some things can’t be bought. No matter how much money you have.
