Our special day

We are officially getting married on July 9th. My expectations at first were that Mel and I were going to go by ourselves and get married in Canada. Next, Melissa’s mom, sister, and sister’s boyfriend were going to the wedding. I decided to invite my family even though it was in Canada with no expectations and then…something great happened. My dad decided he would love to go and be apart of our special day.

In my eyes that is the best present anyone could give me. I never thought that anyone of my family would go or even take our wedding seriously and now my dad wants to be apart of our special day. Having him share in this is something I will never forget.

To be honest I was happy knowing that Melissa’s mom and sister were going to participate in our wedding. They are important to me and I care about them. They are family to me and have been for many years. Carly is just like a sister to me and Ineke is like a mom. Having my dad there is like a cherry on top of a sundae. Even though it will be a momentous day it still makes me sad that my entire family is unable to participate. My mom and sister will not be in attendance but having my dad there will help make our day more special. I hope our families know and understand how much it means to us to have them share and celebrate our marriage.

I'm really pleased that your dad is going to be there for you on your special day. I'm sure it will make it even more special! How lucky too that you have such a great "family in law to be".

Have fun planning and be sure to post lots of photos - I'm a sucker for a good wedding - kleenex every time!
