- Wedding: September 2010
Ok, so I haven’t been here in a while. When I was last here, I was planning a VR for my family in HI and finally at peace with the thought of having a VR and letting go of a lot of anger and not caring anymore what others thought.
Well, now things have changed. My husband and I had to deal with a lot of drama with the VR. Not a lot of people were going to be coming to the one in HI and I understood but it was getting harder to plan this while being overseas and I heard all sorts of complaints from destination to who stays at my house. I felt selfish asking people to even come. There were other bad circumstances (not wedding related but drama at home kind of derailed any VR talk) and so I decided to move it to our homestate. My mom said she would help but I knew that it wasn’t a very good promise because there was so much going on over there. My SIL and BIL had a HUUUGE Vow Renewal and there was so much drama and it was overwhelming, I wanted something a little more intimate.
My husband and I have decided that the best time to have a VR is in Hawaii, just the two of us. Just having something for just us It sounds selfish but my family doesn’t really care nor does his (they just want us to start a family). I am not going to please anyone no matter what I do, I couldn’t please everyone at the Courthouse so why should I expect any different? The best time to have it is now so why not just do something we want to do? So..its a small and simple beach ceremony for us. The less fuss the better. We wanted this VR and I thought of seriously cancelling it because of everyone else but why give up something my husband and I want to do because no one is going to be happy? I will give pictures to our parents and I just want a simple and pretty day on Sunset Beach.
For the first time in a long time my husband and I are doing something just for us and I couldn’t be happier! I hope I can post pics, ask and give advise on here!
