As our wedding day has passed i figured i would do the wedding tag and answer some of the questions you might want to know or are to afraid to ask .. here is all about our big day
1.) How long did you date your spouse, before you got engaged?
we knew right away we were right for each other so we dated about 2 months before hubby proposed on one valentines day
2.) Where did you meet your spouse?
I met him off POF .. a love story off POF .. a beautiful one .. i do have a blog post all about the story
3.) How long was your engagement?
4.) What is your anniversary?
August 7th 2016
5.) How large was your wedding? Guests? Bridal Party?
it was small.. it was my mother, my sister, my father , my mother in law , my sister in law, my nephew, us and our 3 babies thats it .
6.) Who walked you down the aisle?
My father would have normally but instead this time all the guests were just watching
7.) Were you a bridezilla?
yes i really only got to get married officially once and the first time their was no wedding or pictures we were just common law off and on and more times then not.. but since i had his boys i always said i was common law. So the answer is yes i wanted it perfect so at times i was a little feisty lol
8) Why was their only family invited ?
It was only family that was invited and a very small number of family because we did not feel that we needed a big wedding, i know i had promised a few of my friends to be in our wedding and i'm sure they are disappointed but i really am upset that over the last 10 years as my life has had very many huge ups and downs and my babies have been born and i had to took care of them as a single mother for awhile before i met my second husband ,
none of my friends actually came out to see me , their were tons of excuses their were tons of lies told.. drinking .. and staying home was more of a priority for them then actually picking up the phone and giving me a call.. sorry but this is the way it makes me feel . they could have come down to see me but they chose to stay away well so did i .
. its a little hard when i had 2 young boys to travel alone or find a babysitter as a single working mom for friends..When you have babies things change.. i changed.. and my whole world crumpled because i was getting beat at home from my first husband so you have to see that when your friends suddenly don't like your husband but they don't want to come be your friend anymore but pretend your best friends.. well i'm not really going to invite you to my wedding if i feel your being fake all those years. sorry
i really hope people will understand that it was not intentional and we do not hate people we simply feel like a big wedding would not have been appreciated like we would want it to be .. so we basically took our closest family members from both our sides that could get to our deep spot in the woods and went with that . it all worked out . if you have hurt feelings i'm truly sorry but again this was our choice .. maybe friends should have been more of a friend and i would have put you in the wedding maybe you should have been their for me in my darkest times and not even a phone call .. or one phone call once a year just isn't a best friend.
9.) Did you buy your dress new, or handed down?
I bought it new.. my mothers dress was way to yellow and faded and falling apart for me to wear .. we are completely different sizes so this would have never worked
10.) What was your wedding colors/theme?
It was hubby's favorite colors Red/Black .. I was open to pretty much anything but i really wanted him to pick the colors so that i could work around them, of course if they were weird i would have said something and we would have picked something else, but these are the colors we talked about when we first met and talked about and asked each other what we see for our wedding, since we knew we were the one for each other about 2 weeks in to dating
11.) What song did you or your spouse walk down the aisle to?
We did not have a song , we walked down the isle together to get to our spot by the water
12.) What was your something old? Something new? Something borrowed? Something blue?
No we are not traditional people , so we didn't follow this tradition of this blue ideals
13.) Was it a destination wedding?
No it was not , it was deep in the woods just outside our city about 2 hours
14.) What shoes did you wear for the ceremony? BBQ?
15.) Was your dress bustled? If so what type of bustle was it?
No it was no bustled .. i actually decided on a black dress since i couldn't find a red dress in time that i wanted to order online as a big full Cinderella red dress but since our colors were black and red . i chose black , my grandma didn't agree with the colors of our wedding so she and my aunt did not attend (cruel) , black isnt the optimal color for a wedding dress i know but it was our wedding and our choice .. we honestly don't care what people think ..
16.) What was your favorite part of your wedding?
17.) Did you have a reception? Give brief details.. Dancing, dj or mp3, food, throw your bouquet etc?
No we did not have a reception we had a BBQ after which was another intimate family only party with no friends and very little family.. we just ate and sat around and talked and laughed and cuddled w me and my hubby .. very relaxing . just the closest family surrounding us was beautiful exactly what we wanted
18.) Did you smash cake in your spouse's face?
No not at all, we did have cake at our BBQ after but we were so exhausted from the 2 hour drive back and forth to the site where we were married .. we are not rough people , we have big hearts and would not feel happy if we smashed each others faces in the cake .. it wouldn't be funny !!! We had cake the day after , after our dinner .
19.) What types of flowers were in your bouquet?
I had white and red roses , which were fake so that i could save them forever .. i gave the two bridesmaids theirs to keep .. my mother in law had given me big clear plastic bags to keep my bouquet away from dust.. she also did the beginning of the flowers and flowers for all the men and women in our wedding party, but i fixed a few things on a few flowers .. so we both contributed to them
20.) Did you have anything special to represent unity?
Yes our marriage commissioner wrote and said something breathtaking that really hit the core of us , what she said also brought our children in to together . it was so beautiful and meant so much to us
I hope this answers some of your questions about our beautiful private special day that officially joined us as husband and wife .
