13 Things I loved About My Wedding

It just so happens that today is my 21rst anniversary. I already posted a wedding picture of my husband and I on my Take Me back Tuesday post. Scroll down the page to have a look see.

1. The groom showed up. This is important.

2. My dress. It freaks me out now. But back then, I was Cinderella.

3. My mom. She and I spent an entire year planning the big event. I could not have done it with out her. She isn't just my mom. She is my rock, my friend.

4. My sister. Not yet a teenager. She was so excited to be a part of everything. Too old to be a flower girl, I made her a junior bridesmaid. To this day I regret not having her as my maid of honor.She grew up to be my best friend.
Then again, she fainted during the ceremony.

( thankfully I did not see it)

5. Dancing with my dad. We danced to "Never Be One" by Alabama.
I cannot hear that song without crying.

6. The bridesmaid dresses. You know. The ones you can wear again.
If they ever do a remake of
Gone with the wind.

7. My husband. Trying to leave the reception 1 & 1/2 hour into it. He was determined to get to the hotel. "Hey honey, lets eat and leave. "
FYI-He still is like that.

8. Ava Maria- Sung by a man, with the voice of an angel.
On this day, a good memory.

9. Pantyhose- My pretty white ones ended up being meant for toddlers.
My gal pal gave me hers. That's what friends are for.

10. My father-in-law- He wore a tux. Briefly. He changed into a flannel shirt. Yet, he did manage to give me a twirl on the dance floor. Which is a big deal.

11. The single gals/guys- Who knew the value of one bouquet/garter?
Watching desperate people fly through the air was hilarious.
If only there had been mud, now that would have been spectacular.

12. The food. The drinks. The music. We had it all. One big open buffet.
No one had to wait to eat, drink and be merry.

13. My friends and my family. Everyone was there. All captured in pictures. More importantly on video. Many of them of them left a special wish to the Coach and I. Some of them are no longer with us. I wish that they were. Especially our grandparents, my wonderful father and beloved sister.
Yet I am grateful for their love and messages that they left us.
For their wishes will last a lifetime.

I love your 'Days of the Week' - I don't always get them written down, but they veer my thoughts in good directions and make me thankful for so much... including your site!!

I had a good friend Ave Maria at my wedding. Such a beautiful song, isn't it? Sigh. I'm getting teary-eyed just thinking about it. Great, thoughtful list! Sounds like a great wedding - and what I would give to see the GWTW dresses :)

Sooo laughing at the pantyhose mix up. That is something that would have happened to me. Thank you!
