- Wedding: June 2013
I know that I have posted about a lot of drama in regards to Mr.’s family and our inconsiderate guests, and that may give the impression that our wedding was a mess. I wanted to post something good as well.
My older brother and I have had a strained relationship for the past 15 years. He had his first child about a year and a half ago and we have been working on mending things since. With that being said, he can still be a little standoff-ish and I was afraid that he would be that way at the wedding because he wasn’t going to know a ton of people.
He showed up at my bridal suite looking so handsome and dressed to the nines. I hardly recognized him. He was so social and outgoing. He even gave Mr. a hug, told him to take care of me and said he couldn’t believe his baby sister was all grown up. He smiled in all of the family photos, something he hasn’t done in so long. I know that our relationship will be stronger because of how the day went.
Obviously marrying the man of my dreams was the best part of the day, but this was a wonderful surprise and made our day that much more memorable.
I’d love to hear any other stories about a wedding mending relationships.
