So, I want to host a Vow Renewal/WEDDING Reception. It's a long story, but my wedding was on Friday 4/8/16. The Wednesday before, I went into the hospital- I was suffering from a Kidney infection, a kidney stone, and was going into kidney failure as a result. My wedding was already paid for- EVERYTHING. I cancelled everything on Thursday since I was going to go into surgery Thursday night/Friday morning. I got out Friday afternoon, and our families surprised us with a backyard ceremony- it was beautiful- and a summer dress for me to wear. (I was so swollen from the kidney failure that I couldn't fit in my dress) So we got married! We got to keep our date because our families came together to make this happen for us.
I tried to sell our wedding, but it kept falling through. So we decided that since we already paid for it, we would use it. We intend on having a vow renewal ceremony and our long overdue wedding reception afterwards. I intend on wearing the wedding dress that I purchased, because I cried in it when I first tried it on. We don't intend on getting presents, or anything of the like. Just a big party, and I'm making light of everything in the invites and pretty much cracking jokes about the first one falling through, etc. We're doing it on our one year anniversary.
My mother in law is especially excited because she never got to dance with her son, and he's her only son and youngest child. I'm so excited for this! During our wedding I was in such physical discomfort.
