Roll on the Wedding! - by Catherine Smith
The band has been booked, the cake has been made, the photographer's chosen, all bills have been pai
The band has been booked, the cake has been made,
the photographer's chosen, all bills have been paid.
The guests are decided, the menu too;
Something borrowed? Check! Ditto old and blue.
The stationery's been ordered, along with the flowers,
favours are done after fiddling for hours.
The stag do's a blur, same goes for the Hen -
won't be drinking that much in one sitting again!
The dress has been picked, accessories bought;
there's nothing to schedule, no more to sort.
After endless to-do lists for over a year,
it's time to relax; the big day is here!
Sitting here with my girls as our hair gets done,
I can't help feeling lucky to have found 'the One' -
Just think, by lunchtime I'll be his new wife!
Roll on the wedding, and our new married life!
