That is really so great, heartwarming to read and I am so happy for you! You may not NEED a mother figure, but it is so nice to have someone step up for you. I hope you and her can continue to grow closer 🙂 

surprises in my planning…I had a sudden, unexpected venue change (like, as in, went from planning to have our wedding in one part of the country to it changing to a different part of the U.S. entirely) and was disappointed that I had already asked my bridesmaids Under the impression that I was getting married close to where they all live..but they are all on board to make the trip to still be part of my day. I couldn’t ask for better sisters and friends. So nice to feel equally important to the people that are important to me.

also, I wasnt even going to register since most of my family and friends live far away and aI didn’t think I would have a shower, but my dear coworkers planned a bridal shower as a complete surprise and many family members have asked about a registry. We hate asking for anything,  but we are SO grateful for everyone being so amazingly willing to help us out. We do badly need things for the house.

I don’t really have a surprise to share yet, but I wanted to say that’s SO sweet! Major props to your FI for noticing the opportunity to bond with stepmom, props to you for actually reaching out to her, and props to her for being a support network for you!! And what a generous gift from her and your father! I’m so glad everything worked out, I hope things continue to go well between you two! Thanks for sharing this happy story 🙂

That is SO wonderful. My stepson and I are really close and I hope it’s always that way. Successful relationships between a parental figure and child by marriage warms my heart 🙂 Congratulations on finding your dress!

That’s such a wonderful surprise, to find that your stepmom is excited, and that it is going positively. We are still very early in the planning process, but the one spectacular surprise so far: 

We’re getting married in my home state, VA. His family is in Iowa. We truly did not think anyone other than his parents and sister would be willing/able to travel for it. Turns out….almost his ENTIRE family is planning to come, with intentions of making it a huge vacation. I almost cried when I got a group email forwarded to me with all his aunts, uncles, and cousins saying how excited they were to be making the trip for us. 🙂
