So Virginia has this kind of pain in the ass but still kinda nice thing. § 20-25, Code of Virginia, says that you can pay a $500 bond and anyone can perform a wedding ceremony. I think that’s awesome and I would LOVE for my dad to do it (and I’m pretty sure he’d be all over it). I don’t want to be walked down the aisle, which I know his feelings will be kinda hurt over that but this, I think, definitely makes up for it! With that being said, I want to make it kind of special. I mentioned it to my mom a while back and she said something to him about it (even though I told her not to! I was super mad) but I think he probably didn’t think much of it or even forgot about it by now. I’m making a really nice box for my Matron of Honor (and Bridesmaid too if I decide to have more than one attendant) and I was thinking of maybe doing the same for my dad? But like, what could I put in there? I don’t think he wants jewery/ a robe/ whatever else I decide to give my girls. A guess a bottle of Jim Beam (his favorite), a nice binder thing for the ceremony and… what? And I can’t use up all my ideas because I still would need to give him and my mom gifts at the rehearsal dinner. And speaking of my mom, what could I do for her? I know she would feel left out if my dad got to marry us. But then SO’s family could feel left out but I don’t want to end up makin up things for people to do! Halp plz.
ETA: I’m not quite engaged yet. Nothing is official until SO gets a job. So I’m not on much of a time crunch. I just need to keep myself busy otherwise I’ll just harass him all the time about it lol
