- Wedding: May 2010
Hi, I just wandered across this site and I just love the word Encore and I am So EXCITED about my wedding (in just 11 days) and thought someone here might share my happiness! Married young the first time and was married for 22 yrs when it was discovered that he was a criminal (literally, and lets not go there). It was life shattering. We had four children together; two grown and two still growing. Luckily, he is not in the picture for now (and won’t be for five or so years). Time has passed and God is merciful. I have found Mr Wonderful and he loves me and the kids and the grandkids and I hope no one wakes me up!
We are having a small, casual wedding on our deck, and although we have planned to marry, we just picked a date a month ago. I am sort of glad that I don’t have more time because truthfully, I am going a bit crazy and having SUCH a fun time–I love the website Etsy and have gotten so many little things (and a few big important ones–rings etc) there. The items that I could not afford, I did myself (one of my kids helped me make the bouquet and another helped with the cake topper). It has been a lot of fun. My sweetie said to me last week, you are really excited about this, aren’t you?? Like that was a surprise (not his first). Someone stop me–I just got M&Ms with our faces on them!! SO SILLY, I know, but I had to.
I guess I didn’t expect to feel this giddy, since it is not our first and a casual ceremony. I have had such a hard time calling him my “boyfriend” as we are not that young–I usually call him “my guy” or “my honey.” I really will be thrilled to call him my husband! In any case, I do not know anyone else getting marred and going through this fun stuff and I just wanted to talk. Thanks!
