Just wanted to share an old photo I found of my parent's on their wedding day in Cuba. My mom was talking to me and told me how they didn't even have wedding bands. They borrowed rings from their friends in order to "pretend" during that part of the ceremony. She said that they didn't buy their wedding bands until years later here in America.
I asked my mom if she still had the garter she wore, to see if she would let me wear it for my wedding, but she got really sad and said no. She showed me the only things she has from her wedding day are a handful of dried up flowers she keeps in a small box. When my parents and brother left Cuba during El Mariel they weren't able to bring anything with them. She had to leave everything behind. I cried.
My parents have been through so much and have stuck together for 35 years and they're still going strong! My dad is seriously the best man I've ever known and my mom is tough to get along with sometimes, lol, but I wouldn't have her be any other way! LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM!
Do you have any old pics or stories of your parents' wedding day??
Share share share!
