Nonnie, continue to enjoy your wedding and keeping your dad in your heart. He would want you to enjoy every moment as it goes by so fast as it is. I am sure he knows you are keeping in your thoughts. But try to savor this time, it only happens once!

thought I'd give an update now that I am back home

 

My wedding was still wonderful, best day of my life I am sure. I did get a little weepy during the ceremony when my father in law read the sand ceremony I wrote for my dad. He mentioned it was meant for my dad to read and that set me off. Ironically we Got some nice pics from my little moment though since Mark did a wonderful job consoling me. I still feel a little upset when I look at the picture of Mark and I with our folks, since my dad is so clearly missing.

 

My dad is much better now, when my mom got home he was given a weekend pass, then he ended up only needing to be in the hospital during the day, and just yesterday he was discharged. he is getting ECT therapy, which has resulted in some temporary memory lose which has become a bit of a source of humour for him and others. It's good that he can laugh at the situation.

 

My mom is trying to plan a time when we can go out for dinner in our wedding clothes, maybe including some dancing and then pictures at a nearby greenhouse. It won't be nearly the same as having him at my wedding, but it will be something

Your a trooper honey and I know your dad is heartbroken he couldn't be there, but proud as hell he raised a strong daugther that can handle the battles and challenges life has to offer. You are going to make that man an amazing wife and mother of his children... Life isn't always going to be a bed or roses.. and marriage, children and life in general will always throw us curves and challenges. You just proved that you can hand le those moments in life... My hats off to you... Congrats and Welcome home.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
