I feel like I’ve been dishonest, lol.
I’ve been legally married to Danny for 2 years this year.
When we signed the papers, I was very ill. We didn’t know what was going to happen to me. We had planned to get married that year anyway, but life got in the way and we had to cancel. He needed full control over my health records, so we just went down to the courthouse and did it anyway. We eloped.
He bought me a dress for $100 so I could feel special. He also colored my hair, did my makeup (my hands were too weak to do so and I was dizzy all the time) and picked out purple shoes and purple flowers for my hair for me. I was in a wheelchair at the time, but I pulled myself out of it for the ceremony. He held me up.
I’d always mourned the fact that I never got a proper wedding. Last year, I drastically improved, no longer needing the wheelchair and beginning to carry on a fairly normal life…but my day was over with.
Not long ago I had a dream. It was a dream of a beautiful wedding! I woke up feeling sad because I had never felt that. I never got MY day. That special day where a girl can be queen, even if only for a little while. I told Danny about my dream and started to cry. Suddenly he looked at me and said “let’s do it!” “do what?” I said, unsure of what he meant. “Let’s have our wedding! It’ll be awesome! You can get your dream dress and we can have a ceremony in the park and then a huge reception! How about it? Will you marry me? Again?” Of course, I said yes.
I guess just calling myself “engaged” on this site rather than “married but still planning a wedding” was just easier. So yeah. There’s my confession. I’ve been legally married over a year, but I’m finally planning the wedding of my dreams because I never got it.
My other confession is that I have the most wonderful husband a girl could ask for.
Sorry I was kinda untruthful.
And now…a pic of our first kiss as a legally married couple.

I’m so excited for you to get your day! I hope it’s even more amazing than you imagine! (And that your health continues to improve)

Nothing to be ashamed of. Every bride deserves a wedding. It is a wedding after all. Wedding doesn’t mean getting married again. It means a celebration of love. It sure sounds like you have that in your life. xoxox I wish you the best wedding ever!

I say if you consider yourself engaged, then you’re engaged. People get married for a multitude of reasons (and yet many people CAN’T get married – but that’s a vent of mine). I have some chronic health issues and my partner has been amazing. The proposal wasn’t how he wanted it, but it was while I was laying in bed crying in pain, literally. He’s taken me to the hospital. When I’m in the hospital, he’s there the majority of the time unless he has to work. he’s prolly going to be in sleep dep this week to take me to a surgery taht was scheduled on short notice. Marriaage for us is important b/c in many hospitals, if I go into ICU, they can decide he can’t visit me. The ER we were just at would not let me list him as my emergency contact – b/c the emergency contact must be “family” and he’s just… I don’t know what they considered him. It hurt though.
But everyone deserves a wedding if they want one!
