September 30th - Married!
now a Mrs!
has been emailing me to find out the good, the bad, and the ugly so I am keeping
to my promise with an update of how it all went…
Good – we both turned up so it was off to a good start! There was an accident on a major motorway
leading to the venue but luckily everyone made it on time and we only had a
delay of about 20minutes so the last few didn’t miss the ceremony. Joe loved the day and all of our lovely
guests made him feel very important and special. The food was AMAZING, and I even had to
loosen my bodice a little at the back just before dessert to stay comfy – who says
brides are too stressed to eat on their wedding day? The food was too good to miss!
Bad – the last few guests did arrive a little sweaty and flustered but this was
quickly sorted out with a few tissues and a quick breather before the ceremony
began. Darren pretended he has lost the
rings…so not funny. In his defence, he
was trying to freak out his best man, but the best man texted his girlfriend
who told my sister…does he not realise how girls like to talk???
Ugly – there was a lot of alcohol consumed and a few worse-for-wear guests at
the end of the night. But then I guess
that’s what wedding celebrations are all about. Joe over-indulged in the chocolate fountain
and ended up being sick during the night – which we were blissfully unaware of
as Darren’s parents were looking after him for the night, but I did feel bad
for them when we found out!
in all, it was a great day and we feel that we’ve now crossed ‘getting married’
off the list and can continue with our future together. What that will entail it anyone’s guess, but
we are looking forward to married life with our son and whatever that will
you again for all of your help and support along the way, it’s been a blast and
I’m going to miss my stint as guest blogger for The Card Gallery.
is Laura, signing off…
