- Wedding: November 2014 - Mauritius
I moved away from home at 18 and now at 26 live around 100 miles away from all of my family, however I drive down every couple of months and we speak on the phone several times a week. Since getting engaged my parents have been lovely, they don’t have much money and mum has just retired so they couldn’t really contribute a whole lot to the wedding, however since telling my mum we are going away to Mauritius to get married in November she has still been super excited. I am going down this weekend to start the invites for the reception when we get back and she has ordered so many bits for this, coloured card, ribbon, lace, bows, pearl hearts, paper cutters, labels, stamps, border prints and various other things – she experiments and sends me little snaps of what she’s doing, also when new bits arrives she emails the pics to me. It’s so so sweet! She even has a whole box of jam jar’s she is saving (we have some cute idea’s for putting lace around jam jars and candles in them amongst other things) and bought all the special glue, this morning she even sent me a picture of a sash/brial belt she ordered for my dress (I’ve ordered a simple chiffon bridesmade dress and wanted a belt, she is great at making so said she’d order an inexpensive one to see how it was made and would make me one, however the one she ordered is gorgeous!).
This post isn’t really asking anything of anyone, I just think its so sweet and you know when you have one of those ‘I love my mum SOOOOO much’ moments and I wanted to share, I really hope all of you have mum’s/family like this 🙂
