- Wedding: February 2015 - Chapel on Base
Long story short. I changed my wedding date from Nov 1, 2014 to April 11, 2015. My original Maid/Matron of Honor is flying in from Germany. I have known her for 30 years. My dreams were made with her during childhood. She was the the only “thing” I cared about “having” for my wedding. I paid for her airline ticket in order to have her here for my wedding. Neither she nor I can afford another airline ticket to return in April. Changing the flight is impossible because two of her friends are also coming with her for vacation. They are all staying with her mother which enabled her friends to come with since there are no hotel expenses. In Germany apparently they submit for vacation at the beginning of the year which is yet another reason they can’t change their flights.
One of my bridesmaids has been my rock during planning, date changes, plus she was throwing my bridal shower. My children call her Auntie-Mom because she has always been there for us. She is one of the kindest, most loving, do anything for you people. I just adore her.
We were talking at lunch one day and I let it slip that she would be right at my side. She commented that she would love to. I then told her it was a secret and didn’t want to talk about it with her. We both laughed.
She know I am asking her. She knows how much I wired for the airline ticket. She also knows we have had some major financial set backs (funeral and car repairs). I would love to do something extra special for her but mostly I would love to surprise her. I LOVE seeing her happy tears.
Please help me figure out what to do. I will be taking her to lunch when I ask her. I can afford a little something.
