Kate Owens had planned the perfect wedding, from the dress to the flowers and even the band. The only thing missing?
"I booked my band nine years in advance," Owens, 34, told ABC News. "I went up to them and I said, 'I don't have a groom, but if you guys are still around, will you plan my wedding?'"
Owens' booking her wedding band well in advance was just one part of the project manager for I.B.M.'s detailed wedding day planning that began 10 years before she even met her future husband.
"I think some people probably thought I was nuts," said Owens, of Clifton Park, N.Y. "I knew the style of wedding dress I wanted. I knew what style bridesmaids' dress I wanted. I knew the color scheme. I knew I wanted it to be outdoors."
Owens is not alone in knowing, or wanting to know, her every wedding detail well before she even knows if she'll ever say "I do."My daughter is all ready planning her wedding. She can't read yet. I've been informed that I will be marring her, "when she grows up". At least this way, she'll be getting a man I approve of. I think the female of the species starts planning her wedding about 3 seconds after she realizes that she wants to have a baby of her own. In my house this desire to have a baby happened someplace between learning t walk and potty training. This is how it should be, but I don't see why they think its news.
