Show & Tell Monday.

Wedding Bells Ringing 

 Are you married? If so when did you get married, and tell us about your special day. If not? How would you describe your dream wedding?
Yup, I'm married! Been married to my wonderful husband for 4 years! We got married Aug 16, 2008. I wanted a really small wedding so we just got married in my parent's backyard. I honestly wish we would have just got to the courthouse. Though I know that our families wouldn't have been too happy with that.

 Show us some wedding pictures. 

First time we got to sit and relax after the ceremony. 

Cutting the cake after the money dance!

How about the engagement? Tell us your story. If not engaged, what's your dream proposal?
On my 19th birthday, my sweetie took me to dinner & then to a park. He had his mom set up a picnic table there with candles & roses. I was still taking it all in when he popped the question. I hadn't even turned around yet & he was on one knee, so I turned around a little confused & he asked again. Ha. Wish his mom would have brought a camera. 

Show us your wedding rings or an engagement photo! If not engaged/married ... show us your "dream" ring.

Don't ask why it's such an awful picture, I'm going to try & change it out later. 

Tell us why you think marriage doesn't work out for so many? What can we do to make things last ?
You know, I don't think people are willing to put in the work. Our marriage wasn't perfect in the beginning. We knew it and did something about it. I also think a lot of people don't side with their spouse. I know that was big problem for us, my hubby's family would lie & say awful things about me & my family and my husband would take their side, that's a big problem. I know they say you marry your spouse's family but I really think the families need to learn how to back off & that we need to learn how to tell our families to relax.

We considered eloping too...and my parents told us they'd be okay with it, mostly because they couldn't come to our wedding anyways, but in the end we still had a 'traditional' wedding ceremony because sometimes it's good to just keep the family happy! :P And I love the picture of you guys with all the money on you, so fun!

How cool that you went with a simple wedding! Sometimes I wish we would have done something a little bit more simple.
