- Wedding: February 2009
The weirdest thing??? It didn’t bother me at all. I being only married 5 months it was hard not to compare. Her location was more beautiful, they had an open bar (compared to my dry reception), everyone danced the night away (about 10 people danced at mine until around 8pm when everyone left) and her cake was amazing! Still though, I couldn’t help but to think that my day was just as special. I think my husband was a little worried that I would feel down about my own wedding so on our way home he was saying (a little tipsy…ok very tipsy) how much all of the stuff at our wedding didn’t matter because his favorite memory of everything was watching me walk down the aisle. This meant alot to me but for some reason I felt didn’t even need to be said. It was the weirdest thing….
I have to admit, I had a blast! I have never seen my husband drunk before. I am preggers so I couldn’t enjoy the open bar so I would order my husband everything I would want to drink and he drank it for me. Okay, so it might sound a little…un-classy but being around tons of old friends, good music and lots of laughter I think it was alright to be a little “out there” for the night. My husband and I danced together which is something we havn’t done since our wedding and only did for our first dance. (which thanks to our wonderful DJ, messed up our song and the throughout the whole dance the song skipped) Actually, my husband just doesn’t dance at all….or so I thought until this wedding. (Apparently it take a few drinks to make him a dancer…It only took me 5 years to learn this). It was such a bittersweet night that made me feel very young and free again. I wish my own wedding could of done this but I realize that my wedding was as perfect as it will ever be. I guess it doesn’t matter to me what wedding I am at with my husband. Whether its our own wedding or someone elses, we are together. And I am so happy that our perfectly un-perfect wedding made it so.
I guess in the end it is all about marrying the one you love =)
