- Wedding: March 2011
I have a quick question. Or two. Maybe three.
My husband is in the military. When we decided to get married, it was during 2011, when it seemed he would gt deployed to Libya, and when he received orders to Africa, we cancelled the big wedding and did a quick courthouse wedding the week before he was due to leave. My parents and his mom and sisters were there along with my brothers and grandparents. It was just a quick ceremony at the courthouse in OKC, then we had some pictures done, and we all went out to eat.
the day after we got married, they canceled his orders.
Which really irritated me, because we cancelled everything. Maybe should have just waited, but he didn’t want something to happen the mmilitary leave help me at all. I had planned on wearing my mom’s dress, that her mom wore, gt married in the same church, etc.
I’m. Very sad that my daddy didn’t get to walk me down the aisle, and we missed out on a lot that most people have. Oslo we’ve been considering a vow renewal for our fifth anniversary. Two day is our second anniversary, in fact).
not to have a do-over wedding. I won’t be buying or wearing a gown, or even a full veil, my dad won’t walk me down the aisle (though I would love ideas on how to incorporate our parents, we’re both very close), no wedding shower, etc. it’s more the chance to have our families, his dad, more friends and family than before, get together and celebrate with us.
Does this make sense? I don’t want to have a do-over wedding, but I’d like to g everyone together, maybe say a few words, and do some of th things we didn’t the first time. Id love advice and input. Also, would it be appropriate to get some pictures taken in my mom’s dress? It’s very sentimental to me.
