I can live with John Travolta but I’ll draw the line at glitter balls

100 words about planning a wedding
(c) Sonya, 2013

He struts into the room, preening like a peacock. It’s mean but I can’t stop myself from laughing.

‘No, you cannot wear all white.’

‘One of us has to.’

I wipe away tears and compose myself.

‘Add some colour. A blue shirt.’

‘That’ll just ruin the look.’

‘How about a blue tie, then?’

He shakes his head.

‘But, if you wore a white dress, I’d go with a normal suit.’

He looks hopeful.

‘I told you, I’m not gonna get married in white. If you want to look like John Travolta on our wedding day, go ahead.’

Called his bluff.


One of my photos is the prompt for FFfAW this week. Looking forward to everybody’s stories.
