OMG… so I have to share, I’m so excited!!!
My grandma cancelled last minute on the wedding. Boo, hiss, whatever.
So we had this $400 airfare credit (or rather my mom did) and she had the brilliant idea to secretly fly one of my FI’s sisters (who couldn’t come before because they couldn’t afford it and we couldn’t afford to pay for them) out to California for the wedding. I AM SO EXCITED. This is going to mean sooooo much to FI.
Also, FI has said before that if her sisters could be there, they would be in the wedding… so I’m secretly going to help her sister get a BM dress, make her another bouquet (haven’t figured out yet how to keep that one a secret), and then she can be in the wedding too!!!!
I think this is going to be the best surprise ever… particularly because the wedding is mostly MY family and friends, since hers are all either homophobic or couldn’t come.
The only bad thing is that I have to choose between her sisters ( she has two) and she is closer to the older one… BUT, the older one has an inflexible work schedule, a one year old, and is also a druggie. Younger one it is. I think she’ll be happy either way.
What do you guys think? Good surprise?

Thats awesome! But, when are you going to surprise her? I hope it isn’t during the ceremony. I mean, not that that wouldn’t be extra crazy awesome, It just would detract from her seeing you for the first time.

@Mrs Hedgehog: No it think I’m going to have her sister fly in a few days before the ceremony. That way she can get over the surprise and we can also include her sister in the rehearsal.

That’s AWESOME!!! And having some time with her before the wedding will be nice. I’m sure she won’t care ‘which’ sister it is, it will just be nice to have one there!
My stepsister’s girlfriend bought her a ticket as a surprise to come out for my wedding 🙂 My sister found out already, but we’re keeping it a surprise from my stepdad… he’ll see her the Thursday night before our Saturday wedding 🙂
He’s going to be SO happy!
