What do you remember most about your wedding day preparations?
In A Winter Wedding, a movie that I saw via UP Channel, Hallie and Lucas are recently engaged. Hallie has always dreamed of having her wedding in a tropical location. Hallie’s mom tries to take over the wedding, acting as if she were getting married instead of Hallie. I thought that Lucas’s parents were honest, down-to-earth people. Hallie’s mom….whew! She obviously had a lot of issues. Due to circumstances beyond their control, when their reservation at the tropical wedding location is suddenly cancelled, Hallie decides that she wants a winter wedding at Lucas’s parents’ home.
This movie has a sweet and surprising ending. Some family secrets are revealed and you discover why the characters acted the way that they did, especially Hallie’s mom. Hallie and Lucas also struggle with their own doubts about their wedding day.
There’s also a bit of a side romance, sort of, between the best man and maid of honor. I don’t want to give more details without spoiling the movie for you, but, just seeing that film made me think about my own wedding day.
When we got married there were so many decisions. I honestly didn’t know the magnitude of what I had to do until we started planning. Sure, I’d helped out with friends’ weddings before, but, when you’re the bride, it’s just different, at least it was for me. My family stepped in to help but, the decisions…oh my! Every little thing required so much thought and effort!
I’ll admit that my favorite part of the planning was the cake tasting! We went to so many places, sampling cakes! We finally settled on a yellow cake with almond buttercream frosting and hazelnut filling. It was gorgeous and delicious! Here’s a pic from our wedding day:
So, what do you remember most about your wedding day and the preparations?
This has been fun, a real pleasure, blogging here. This is my last blog post because I’ll be taking a semi-hiatus from writing as I enroll into graduate school. I’ll be earning my Masters Degree in Financial Management and Accounting from The University of Maryland (online). After that, I want to take the CPA (Certified Public Accountant) exam. I’ll still release books while in graduate school. I got the rights back to all of my traditionally published books. I’ll be revising and re-releasing those titles and will include them in The Candy Beach Series! I’ll miss blogging here, but, I’ll be sure to pop in once in a while and leave a comment!
