ok first off my appologies for a long post- i completely understand if you dont read lol
*chuckles* my wedding wasn't as interesting as everyone else's here but there were a few moments that still bring a chuckle from me
I come from a family at least on my side where there's a divorce rate of at least 80-90%
so needless to say when hubby and i were fairly new in our relationship and oops we discovered we were going to be parents- well i was a bit against or rather afraid to get married so it took sometime to feel right about it and thank god he was and still is a solid stand by guy - i was due in feb and had planned to get married on easter- but a friend told us hubby wouldn't be allowed in the delivery room unless we were married and i was gullible enough to belileve it (baby was born in jan anyways wow)
but that led to us to deciding to get married on christmas eve- back then i had wanted to get married on a religious holiday- it meant something to me to do that lol- and easter was "after the event"
so we decided we would get married on christmas eve since obviously christmas was what it was
and we kept it a surprise or so we tried till christmas morning for the family- hubby's family has big get togethers on christmas morning and we had planned on putting a bow on a box with the marriage certificate, a bottle of champagne and glasses- well stepping back to the ceremony
i had to make a mad dash around stores to find a slip to fit my big belly- and the only place that had one was the bon marce now Macy's.. a friend prior to that had given us a wedding band (weâd gotten hubby one cheap couple months prior)
Ok so now at the ceremony- Iâm standing there in pink heels to match the pink maternity dress with lace trim lol my feet begin to hurt so I kicked them off and the whole ceremony I had this grin about me standing there barefoot and pregnant- but it was sweet- just hubby, me, the minister and the pianist- and baby to be J
The thing that brings the biggest smile to me is since we were on our way to hubbyâs familyâs place (on Christmas eve) we had brought our dog with us- who was happily sitting outside in the car munching on a mcdonalds sausage mcmuffin just for him!
To end the long story that I tried to keep short (honest I did!) my BIL had asked me that night what hubby and I had planned for our wedding and I panicked! Lol so we broke the news- and told them we had planned on a wedding for the family on our first anniversary (never happened- none of the others wanted to do it by then lol) but it was still a joyous occasion- it was also hubbyâs grandmothers birthday that day
oh and to edit* on this upcoming christmas eve we'll be celebrating 16 years
we have WAy too many family bdays and anniversariesin dec and jan lol OYE>
