I am so pleased with our decision to do a charity golf tournament in lieu of a bridal shower! I had a long week of sick babies (FI include) so I did not feel as organized and put together as I would have liked but at the end of the day I shared a wonderful day with amazing and kind people!

*The Good*

*I spent the day with a great group of friends & family & enjoyed stories and kind words of FIs father who has passed but was a passionate and kind P.E. teacher and we had this tournament in his honor*

*Made some money to help our local schools P.E. department which is sadly laking and so important to children*

*Got to watch FIs MoM get on a chair and do a little shimmy, that was some good wine :D*

*Though it was windy we had no rain which is what I was affraid of so it still falls under a "good" in my book*

*The Bad*

*I forgot the pictures and sponsor information that was supposed to go on the donation table =/*

*I forgot my bra that went with my white dress so I had my nude bra poking out all night, not a big deal but frustrating!!*

*The Ugly"

*My gorgeous little Enzo got an "ugly" black eye from running into the table, he is so tuff though the little booger NEVER cried! Ouch!!

All in all it was a wonderful day filled with love, kindness, & joy! I look forward to doing this again next year, we plan to make it much bigger(kept it only to wedding guest this year). I pray it grows every year and helps contribute to something near and dear to our hearts!!

I am what I photo 3268922-1

I am what I like to call a "Mommy Bride" I had 2 year old twins to potty train, 3rd grade homework I had to help with, & I also planned a wedding while managing all the other "joys" that Motherhood brings. It is true that becoming a Mother really does change your perspective & teach you many lesson. However, being a "Mommy Bride" definitely adds new creative, fun, stressful, & often exhausting moments that will make your and your child's special day amazing! My day would maybe have been more organized or put together but I prefer the chaos mixed with love compared to a "perfect" day". 

 

1.Involve them where you can & don't expect it to be perfect, plus the little mistakes often play out to be pretty funny & memorable. I had my 8 year old help pick out the guys stuff, help with the candy table, & he wrote a prayer for the ceremony. All three boys were involved in a personal rose ceremony written by my Aunt.

2.If you have a candy table.....expect a sugar high!

3. Let them dance not much is cuter then dancing kids & it is really your only option if you want to get rid of that sugar high :D

4. If Mommy needs a drink, a run, a hot bath....DO IT! Whatever it may be make sure to do what you love & what relaxes you. Motherhood & wedding planning are a lot of work & sometimes a girl just needs a break!!

5. The day of your wedding just go with it!! I learned this lesson at it's finest when my two year old just moments before the ceremony stripped down to nothing but his diaper and had a meltdown! I don't know if his shirt itched him but he went from a white button up shirt into a red t~shirt and all was well?!? All I can tell you is take a deep breath and fix the problem trust me friends the wedding ceremony will not continue unless the bride is there! we started 15 minutes late but it all went well and my son was still able to be part of the ceremony.I am what I photo 3268922-5I am what I photo 3268922-6

6. They will want to invite their friends ;D & their friends are stuffed! My youngest twin has a true affection for his two ducks (QuackQuack & Ducky) they have been a part of so many of his adventures in life I figured I might as well include them in my wedding party! So they put on a bow tie & collar & played the role of RB pillows, it was such a wonderful idea & kept the boys happy and calm through their part of the ceremony.

(notice the red shirt, LoL)

7. Let them visit, wonder, & just plain have fun with your guest and your day, you will end up with some great pictures!

8. LET IT GO! Not every detail is going to get done, &if it does great if it doesn't....o'well!! My children were all sick as was I two weeks before my wedding. Getting them & myself healthy was more important then getting the perfect pair of shoes, making my escort cards, & getting more candy for my sweets table. Would I have liked to have those things? Of course, but life happens & a lot of times as a Mom it seems it happens all at once!

9. Bask in the love that surrounds you not only with your new husband but with your children also! Laugh with them, kiss them, hug them & always remember what a special part of the day they were!

10.If all else fails get the NANNY!! I highly recomend getting a nanny if you can fit it into the budget. It gives family & friends a chance to enjoy the kids but not feel like they have to keep an eye on them.

Family Rose Ceremony photo 1

~Family Rose Ceremony~

The blending of a family is a complex thing.  Each person has unique characteristics, and it is those things that make us fall in love with them.  We would never want their personality to be lost or altered. But sometimes our individuality presents challenges as it merges with the individual personalities of others.  So how can five completely different people make one complete family?  There can be only one answer: LOVE.  
   The red rose is a symbol of love.  Each of you holds a red rose.  When you look at the rose, you can first of all know that God loves you.  Just as he carefully made the rose you hold, He carefully made you.  He created you to be the special person you are.  Each rose is beautiful by itself, but when all the roses are put together they become an exquisite bouquet.


   Today, as you each put your rose into the vase, you are showing your family and friends, and each other, how very much you want to be more than just your own person.  You are showing that you choose to put your lives together to be the family God designed you to be.
