Who invites themselves to a wedding?
Posted 04 August 2008 - 11:16 AM
My mom (my guest) spent a lot of money to come to my wedding. I wanted her vacation to be as enjoyable as possible, and I knew that I was not going to spend every waking moment of the trip with her. Having her friend there not only kept her entertained, her friend turned out to be one of the sweetest women ever. She is a pro photog and took tons of pics for us the whole trip. It really was the more the merrier and I'm glad in the end that they did come.
