- Wedding: May 2010
I am overwhelmed by the amount of support I recieved from my post “My mother is dying..” Thank you to all of you brave bees who shared your stories of loss. I recived great comfort knowing that I am not alone.
My FH and I have decided to go forth with a unity ceremony. We are going to have a friend conduct it, and we are going to write vows of commitment to each other and our families. After we read our vows, we are going to do a unity sand ceremony to connect our two families. The only people who will be in attendance will be my mom, dad and sister (MOH), his mom, dad and sister and the entire bridal party (our closetst friends).
We will not have a precession, but my dad and I will walk down a make shift isle we will create in my FH’s backyard. Everyone but my FH, myself, and whoever conducts the ceremony will be standing.
As opposed to a bouquet, I will carry two flowers (I cannot decide which kind). As I pass my Future Mother-In-Law and my mom, I will hand them each of the flowers. I thought this would be a sweet gesture to them both.
After the ceremony, we will just host a small backyard BBQ with some music and laughter.
I hope to make this day truly special and memorable for all of those involved, especially my mother.
So ladies… here is my question:
1. What kind of flowers could I use?
2. I need suggestions about where to find a casual long, white dress.
