- Wedding: February 2013
Originally we were going to the courthouse, just us & his two kids, then my stepdad decided to surprise my mom for her 70th birthday with a family reunion because my little sister is going to be back in our home state for work the same weekend as my mom’s birthday and I thought how fun it would be to get married while my whole family is together. I found a place that does elopment’s and we were going to do a 15 minute Sunday elopment on the Riverwalk but they had a package deal and now, viola, we’re having a bona fide mini wedding and FI is making noises about inviting his family, too. This is #3 for both of us and we really didn’t think anyone would notice/care about our wedding but now we’re both getting pretty excited, the package deal even comes with a boquet and cake! My little sister even offered to take the kids to Sea World after the ceremony so we can have alone time.
The people who had the package deal know the manager of the hotel we are staying at so they are going to make arrangements for us to get married at the hotel, which is converted from a 1920’s bank building and has a beautiful lobby. It’s still going to be very small, about 14 people or 18 if FI’s family comes. My original plan for the courthouse was to get a retro wiggle type dress, probably in army green as that’s FI’s favorite color in the world and it puts him in a good mood when I wear it. Now I’m wondering if I should go with something a little more “wedding”? Maybe a cream or off white or pink suit?
