November 18th, Rehearsal dinner...
The weekend for my son and his wife is filled with wedding activities… rehearsal dinner tonight, wedding tomorrow…my daughter in law’s brother. I feel invested, why?! Weddings are big deals but filled with mixed emotions and messages. Both my son and his wife do not seem enthusiastic…I am kind of stressed and sad about it.
Working as an event server I am part of several weddings. Big, fancy ones that make you both admire and pause. I have wanted to be a wedding dress designer, a wedding planner too. But I also, remember not remembering our wedding. Thinking how nice it would be to have a destination, intimate one, but knowing it would need to be an event as the first one for my family, the only potential one for my husband’s. Respecting, excited and supportive that my son and daughter in law had theirs in Hawaii. It was wonderful!!
Hopefully all is going well tonight at rehearsal. That everyone can find enjoyment. This will be the first wedding my granddaughter experiences, she should remember, especially as a part of it – flower girl. I want them to feel the joy, have fun, embrace the love a marriage is founded upon (most often) - not the stress, obligation.
Hmmm, I do…day 125!
Thank you if you choose to join the journey. Let's hope it is more fun than tears!
