    We all know that part of a destination wedding that is a bit of a drag is that not everyone we love can be there. I wanted to share a few pictures of my special visit with my Nana last week. She's 92 and a half and isn't able to travel with us down south...so I brought my dress (before fittings), earrings and headband to show her. It was a very special evening and I know she loved seeing my dress. My favourite part was when I asked her if my FI would like it and she said "oh my god...of course!"

    Not sure if this is the right place to post this but I wanted to share...especially considering it's Mother's Day!

                Awwww you brought tears to eyes! I'm so happy for you that you had the ability to do something so special for both you and your Nana. Unfortunately my Mimi isn't here any more so she was watching our wedding from heaven... Looks like you made your Nana so happy!

                  That's such a sweet and touching thing you did for your grandma. I'm sure it's something she'll cherish and remember forever.

                  BTW....your dress is BEAUTIFUL!

                      Awww, I'm sure your Nana was thrilled to see you in your dress! What a very special moment. If you video the ceremony/reception, she'll get to see you walk down the aisle, even though she wasn't physically there.
