Sorry you're going through this, but all the other ladies are right. You can only control your own reactions, so try to let it go and enjoy yourself. It will all be over before you know it! I started planning over a year ago, and now my day is gone. In the end, you'll be married, and that is really what counts. I think your boys would love to be part of the sand ceremony, and may well provide comic relief. We had our 3 kids involved (11, 11, and 14) and they really enjoyed it. One of them spilled a bit of sand and got everyone laughing. But my favorite part of our ceremony was when Mark vowed to 'pour my drinks', because we had a hard time understanding the minister. I think it was supposed to be 'support my dreams', but either way works.
Thank you very much girls. You are all right, im not going to mention any details to my mam. She knows how I feel and there is nothing I can do to change that. I have 2 excited lil boys aged 6 and 2 that cannot wait for Mammy and Daddy's wedding! They are both going to be our page boys. My 6 year old asked me the other day if he can have the job of giving the cake out after our wedding. When I said yes, his little face lit up! So that is his special job! My 2 year old cannot wait to play in the swimming pool. I am going to focus on savouring them details and not any negatives. We have decided the children will join in the sand ceremoney too. Which I am really excited about! My 2 year old is a right charactor and will probs throw the sand around rather than pour into the vases....it'l all be fun!
Thank you very much Murmel, mwise and bryteyedbride thankyou for making me realise the important thing's again
