- Wedding: May 2013
I am super excited!!! We only have 2 days until we say “I do.” The feeling is unimaginable. Despite the hard road we treaded to get here, everything is working out great! I’ve put my family issues behind me and moved on. My 3 wonderful sister-in-laws, on Fiance side, has stepped in as my bridesmaids and I couldn’t be happier.
I will be spending tomorrow at a spa with my Maid/Matron of Honor. I have NEVER been to a spa and I can’t wait. She said I need to take some time out for myself and relax. A spa day is exactly what I need!
Yes, we hit a few hiccups, but it’s nothing to complain about. Our church family has stepped in and taken all of our worries away. We didn’t have a photographer, a family friend decided to charge us $2,400 and when I said we couldn’t afford it, he refused to give us any of our engagement pictures that we already paid for. Sunday, one of our church members asked if she could take our wedding pictures. I had no idea she was a photographer! She’s also letting me wear her bolero jacket for the wedding.
That was a huge relief!
I also just found out one of our church members is having 100 bride and groom decorated cake balls (sells for $2 a piece) made for the reception.
My Fiance, future in-laws, church family, and friends are taking care of the decorations and my Future Father-In-Law paid for a 2 night suite for the weekend.
We did have a minor disappointment. The bakery manager at the shop we are getting our cake gave us a great deal. He promised to give us 20% off and was going to charge less for the cake. He told us to give him a one week notice and we’d be set. Well, we went in and found out he is on a 2 week long vacation and the cake we wanted would not be ready in one week. We opted for a different, more expensive cake, but it’s going to be A-ok. It was a little hurtful because my heart was set onthat cake, but the new one is just as pretty. It’s only going to get eaten anyway LOL
So, the bottom line is, I’m HAPPY!!! The music is set, programs have been made, and more people are coming than we first expected. My biological family may not be there, but my true family will be and that means more to me than anything in the world!!!
