“I Was The Wedding Planner”
Today was just one of those days when family pictures really make you happy!
At least, the old memories make my life feel well worth it, I get a warm feeling
in my heart all the time. I still can’t believe that I successfully pulled off being
the Wedding Planner, for my daughter’s wedding. I’ve done crazy things in my
life, but this one was a bit too much! It all started out with the idea that I would
make my daughter her Wedding Cake. I was fine with that even when she was
just dreaming about what her wedding would be like, someday.
The day finally arrived, and guess what, your never really ready as a parent.
You might think so, but a whole lot of things go through your mind and you just
find yourself . . . agreeing, just because!
Of course, we began the wedding planing and somehow you always find
you need to rearrange ideas. She wanted Watermelon & Guava for her colors,
and yes we did have many “Steel Magnolia” moments. It took me a few minutes
to soak those colors in, but they really worked out quite nice. So, I begin the search
for Pink Gerbera Daisies, accessories for the girls, Pink Cala-lilies for the grooms
men, table linens to match, and on, and on!
By the time we were done, I cooked the meals for the guest, I set up that morning,
I made her pink cake with cannolli-filling, she had her Pink Jordan Almonds on the
candy table. Well, you can see where this is going! I could have just put a gun to my
head and been done with it, but I had to stick it out. This is what she dreamed and
I made it up in my mind that nobody could do it, the way I would. Yes, I avoided
getting mad at the planner and not being satisfied with the out come, but I missed
my daughter’s wedding. With the exception of the “I DO!”
**I didn’t forget him, but just in case anybody thought I did!!! Thanks to my
husband for his major contribution . . . the funds, this contribution
made this wonderful day happen. I must also say, there was NO LOAN taken
and we don’t borrow . . . AMEN to this too!**
