This weekend, we are attending the wedding of a girl near and dear to our hearts. She is marrying a wonderful young man and we couldn’t be happier for both of them.
As I’ve been putting together our wedding clothes (Yikes! Do my boys have ANY nice pants without holes in them?!), my own wedding has been on my mind. Matt and I are going on 16 years (awwwww). All those wedding details were so important to me 16 years ago when I was planning my wedding and I knew I would never forget any of them.
Yeah, I forgot.
I can not remember the song playing when our grandparents walked down to the aisle. I can barely remember who was in attendance (um, if you happened to be one of the people that came, of course I remember that you were there). I can barely even remember who all was in our wedding party until I carefully look at the pictures. Good grief.
What I do remember is the look on Matt’s face as I started walking down the aisle. And how my dad could hardly perform the ceremony because he was crying too much. And how Matt and I were also crying the entire time and we only had one sorry little kleenex to share between the two of us.
I remember how beautiful my mom looked. And how beautiful her voice sounded when she sang (our family had pre-recorded many of the songs played during the ceremony).
I remember that the best man seemed to have “misplaced” my ring in an effort to freak out the bride. I’ve mostly forgiven him. ;)
I remember how happy and excited I was when we were pronounced “Mr. and Mrs. Matt Coppinger”!!!!!
I remember that our colors were navy blue and rose. I still love those colors.
So, I have a very simple question for you if you care to share: What were the colors you used in your wedding? (Or if you aren’t married yet, what are the colors you might like to use someday?) And…if you remember any other details about your wedding, we’d love to hear them!
