Here comes the bride......

My husband and I will be celebrating our 4 year anniversary this October!  One thing I have always been with my husband is honest.  He knows everything that has ever happened to me, every thought I have, and every feeling.......except for one.  Certain life and family situations didn't allow for my husband and I to have "wedding".  So my husband and I, and our families, went down to the courthouse.  No dress, no flowers, no reception....not even a single picture.  At the time...none of this mattered.  I was marrying my best friend and the love of my life.  Now, it seems as though anytime I see a bride, look at a bouquet of flowers, or think about weddings, I just want to cry!  As a little girl, you dream of a big wedding, being walked down the aisle by your daddy, and going off to a romantic honeymoon.  So for me, it just seems like a big chunk of my life that was supposed to happen, was taken away.  Now the question...should this bother me as much as it does?

I was in the same situation as well. After we found out we were pregnant for the second time..we thought it would be a good idea. We had a co-worker of mine who was a JP come to a friends house and marry us there. All 6 of us; me and my husband, his friends, the JP and our 1 year old daughter.
I wish I was given the chance to be a princess for a day. And I see people that were given the oppertunity and I envy them.
But I don't think it has changed anything. My girls are my world, and getting married (though, yes, we love each other dearly and could never live a day without each other) was for our girls.

I just think it's the idea of the fantasy wedding that excites any woman. Girls often start planning for their weddings at a very young age, so if it doesn't happen....it could come as a let down almost.
