- Wedding: May 2011
What a weekend, I just had to share! We made our last trip to Charleston before the big day. Everything is done on that end 🙂 My bridal portraits turned out awesome!! I’m in love with the few sneak peaks I got.
My “slutty” dress was a success at the bridal shower thanks to my full length cardigan and sandal flats. It was actually a really nice time and his aunt and grandma (aunt was host but we used grandmas house) did a wonderful job. Everything was very pink and pretty! No one told me I was going to hell and his 2 aunts bought us our most expensive registry item which was a huge shocker! Another aunt took me to the side and told me how happy she was to see I had registered for bakeware and that she would send me all her favorite recipes (then whispered that I couldn’t give them out as they are “secret”). In addition we found out his grandma is giving us a substantial monetary gift that surprised the both of us. I felt oddly emotional towards the end because it seemed like everyone was finally accepting me.
There were a few awkward moments like when I was introduced to a long time family friend who announced to FH from across the room, “Oh I thought you were marrying the OTHER June” (I share the same name as his ex). A great aunt also asked my mom if she had me out of wedlock since she looked so young which I guess is a compliment. Also despite the fact that I have actually gained a few pounds I had several compliments on losing weight (FH and I think they were confusing me with another ex who was bigger).
No real point to this post I just wanted to share 🙂
