- Wedding: June 2011
I’m getting the feeling I might be pushing it with all my twitter and facebook updates being about my upcoming wedding. I’m just super excited.
A few weekends ago we finally booked our honeymoon – 5 days at Sandals Regency St. Lucia. I keep dreaming about sipping drinks on the beach and relaxing with my honey.
Last weekend I bought my wedding dress – DB WG3029. I was worried about not having that magic “THIS IS MY DRESS” moment until I put this one on. Even 5 sizes too big, the consultant pulled it tight around me and it was perfect. I put on my veil and started crying.
And finally, one of the most meaningful moments of my life. We went to my fiance’s parents’ house for dinner. His mom took me upstairs with her and handed me a small package. Inside were beautiful family heirlooms – delicate handkerchiefs that had belonged to her great-grandmother and mother-in-law, and a gorgeous little locket. I was speechless and am still so elated. I’ve never had a family (besides my mom and sister), and certainly never had family heirlooms. I felt so completely enveloped in my future in-law’s family at that moment.
Thanks for letting me gush for a while! 🙂
