View Full Version : I'm getting married tomorrow!

June 25th, 2017, 12:38 AM
Super excited to be marrying the best man/teammate/partner I could ever hope for.
He loves me and my daughter and accepts all our flaws.
I made my bouquet. And had my dress altered, but then had to make some adjustments with my trusty featherweight. Its been an interesting journey trying to plan and execute a "No guest wedding" but it works for us because of several reasons.
Anyway. How you all have great.day too!

Congratulations. My DH and I also had a no guest wedding, well almost no guest, our parents were there, and I never regretted not having a big affair. I wish you all all the happiness in the world.

When I remarried ( my first DH passed away in 2002 ) I slipped a note in that said " No Gifts Please..." We also asked that no kids under 10 attend the wedding......and WOW my youngest sister threw a fit.....and we relented and her granddaughter CRIED through the entire ceremony. ( We of course invited everyone to the dinner we including the children )

IF I had it to do all over again, I would have had my dress made. I made a simple suit and purchase a nice hat, gloves. We just had a small wedding....just the immediate family and a few close friends.

Have a wonderful day tomorrow......if you take photos, please share !

Thanks everyone for the well wishes.
We had one family member have a pity party pout, and that stunk. But she got over it. I dont regret anything. It would have been nice to have everyone we loved in the room, I only have about 5 offical family members left, but those same people on his side would have equaled 50 people. Step parents, half and step siblings etc... That comes with alot of baggage, STRESS and expense. We stuck to our plan. My close friend and her family helped. They took me in as the 4th sister when I left my ex and have been a second family to me and my daughter. Everyone had a job or task, so I was still able to say it was a NO GUEST wedding. We had just enough people the help make it happen. It was perfect.

Afterwards, we left the kiddo with them and snuck off to Asheville, NC for 3 nights. Hubby (hehehehe) got a king suite with jaccuzi & balcony. It was hard to leave the hotel room! It is bigger than my first post divorce apartment!

We went to the gardens at Biltmore, shopped and ate. And shopped and ate more. We had diner food, pub food and ruth chris steakhouse fancy food. We even make a stop in at a local fabric store (love this man!)
One more night before we head down the mountain and back to real life. Fortunately we had a pretty awesome real life before the 20 minutes with the preacher and paperwork. ;)


Hope the link works.

Next up is finishing the pinwheels quilt and start house shopping after the kiddo starts 5th grade in the fall.

It took me to my mid 30's to figure out I don't need to be a perfect woman or find the perfect man..... I just had to find the man that I'm perfect for and is perfect for me.

You know, I am looking again at your beautiful pictures.....I am going back 45 years...I met a wonderful man who took me and my two children, and made us HIS family. He adopted them, and has loved them and me all these years. We have a child of our own, too. I am blessed, our children are blessed, and I pray that you and your beautiful daughter and handsome husband will be as happy 45 years from now as I am.
