- Wedding: April 2009
Ok, this is totally ridiculous, but I’ve been trying to figure out my entrance to my ceremony on the front lawn of a historic mansion for a. while. Being dropped off by a car just didn’t feel right, but the place we’re getting ready is on a totally different part of the property so it was my only option. So then I thought that maybe I could have screens set up or something so that I could hide behind them while the car went and parked, or maybe a small tent, but nothing felt right and it all seemed too complicated. And even then, the walk from where the car could drop us off, up the HUGE lawn to where the ceremony is taking place on the front steps of the home would take like 3 minutes, which is a long time for people to be staring at a small white speck in the distance. Enter my solution. I am going to have a white carriage drawn by horses pick me up from where I’m getting ready, drive me up to the mansion, and drop me off right behind the chairs!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My girls will get out first and do their walk…then my dad will get out and help me out and we will walk up together. I am so. excited. I’m squealing inappropriately at work. This is a completely unnecessary, totally over the top thing that I would never think of doing because I’m having a fairly simply wedding–but it feels like a fairy tale! And I feel so lucky!!!! Anyone else have something in their wedding that they just can’t believe they get to have (other than your FI–we all know that we’re unbelievably lucky on that front!)??
