I have been browsing the boards this morning and I was so inspired to write a post that might help cast a ray of sunshine on you beautiful ladies.
It seems like there is a lot of fear and doubt and worry of judgement because you are embarking upon "another" wedding. I just wanted to send my love to you all. I understand that vulnerability. I had a pang of it earlier last week when an old friend and my Aunt, both made comments about it working out THIS time. I let it affect me for a few minutes and then I realized... I JUST DON'T CARE!
My fiance and I are on cloud nine over our love and anyone we come across, sees it. We don't NEED to prove that this is the right marriage. We don't need to explain that we deserve a REAL wedding. We don't need to be defined by MY past marriages. We are in love now. We are engaged now. Our past is just that... PAST. In fact, the past only exists because someone dwells on it.
I am living out loud. I live on purpose. I live in the now. We are in love and we will celebrate, register, honeymoon, have bachelorette parties, showers, STD cards, engagement parties and my fiance even asked for my Father's permission!!!
This love should not be penalized!
Ladies, jsut remember, your marriage (and how YOU choose to celebrate it), is between you TWO!
