- Wedding: September 2010
Hi bees! This is my first post! (SO exciting!) I have been reading the boards for a few months but i HAD to post this after speaking with my Dad. We are in the very beginning stages of planning and trying to get a number nailed down.
Last night we were talking about his input for our guest list. After listing the family and friends I was expecting him to invite he was up to about 40 people. We were happy with the list he came up with and I thought we were done with his part until he says:
dad-“Wait! I have 1 more person i want to add”
me-“ok Dad who’s that?”
me- ” I already listed Aunt Marti and Uncle John don’t worry”
dad- ” No not Aunt Marti.. MARTHA STEWART.”
me- “uhhh wait what?! Are you being serious?!”
dad- “Yes absolutely! Your mom would have LOVED that”
HA! Is that the funniest thing you have ever heard!? My DAD wants to invite Martha to the wedding. LOVE IT!
some back story.. My mom passed away almost 5 years ago and she was a HUGE Martha fan. HUGE! I inherited about 60+ of Martha’s books from mom bc she loved all things Martha.
I have heard of sending invites to the president and first lady but THE Martha Stewart!? Has anyone experienced anything like this? & who suggested it?
