    Wink I have a wedding coming up !!! Wahoo

    My youngest daughter is getting married this Saturday. I am sooo excited !! The first of my children's marriages. They have arranged it all since they set the date in January. I feel for her partner as she has sort of turned into a Bridezilla, she is also a perfectionist & a bit OCD ( won't touch railing in public places). They have been together & madly in love for 9 years with a 7 year old daughter who is the light in their lives. I am hoping for a beautiful day. Plenty of his wheel chair mates will be there as well as able bodied people so I am guaranteed a very fun night as these wheelies a really wild !!!
    Sadly my Mum has left us so won't be there ( in spirit I guess) my husband ( her Dad) won't be there as he has also left us but I am so sure he will be there in spirit to watch his baby girl marry. She has given orders that I am not allowed to cry as I walk her down the aisle or she will sit me in the first available chair. SIL has suggested that I maybe should not look at him as he will be a mess. I have never been to a wedding where I didn't cry in my life

    All that joy stuff is what makes me cry Scisyb 220 LOL. It will be sad not having my hubby there to do the walking down the aisle. We still miss him after 12 years, but i guess that's how it should be. Births, deaths, & marriages has always made me cry--- Guess I'm just a sook

    If you are a crier you will cry. I am not no matter what happens wedding funerals etc, people think I have no feelings which is not true. I just don't show in public I do admire people who show their emotions just do it
    Have at wonderful time and take a lovely lace hankie.

    Tears of joy are a perfectly good thing! Don't worry and enjoy yourself. Best wishes to the happy couple!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    Congratulations and blessings to the couple! I know you are thrilled. I have two daughters so I know the wedding routine. LOL My oldest wanted a wedding with all the trimmings. When my youngest got engaged, she opted for a check instead of a wedding. Said she went through all that with her sister's wedding, give her the money. LOL. They put a down payment on a house and still living in it.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    Congratulations! Not cry at weddings!!!who ever heard of such a thing? My husband is one of those old-fashioned gentlemen who carries a cloth handkerchief and he always carries an extra to a wedding for me.

    It was hard to tell whether he was crying or it was just sweat.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    It was a lovely long awaited wedding.The function had the most beautiful views looking back towards the Gold Coast. Mackenzie Paige is a lovely little girl & it is much amusement to see how much smarter she is than her Dad & Mum ( as well as her Nanny). She lost her lost her tooth 2 days before the wedding which made her look cuter

    Congratulations! Weddings are so wonderful! Beautiful new family.

    I cry at tv ads, so not cry at a wedding? Unheard of.
