I wish all the best Twila, the big "M" can be a scary thing.

May your heartbeat always quicken and your mouth from a smile when you see the hubby to be, now and 30 years from now

May your fights( and there will be fights) end with laughter and the old fashioned way of making up

May babies be blessed and enjoyed, some day they will appreciate all the love that you have lavished on them

Have fun with your life and your man...If you don't who else can?

I could use all the advice possible on how to get through it without passing out or throwing up from nerves! lol

Love your post Manda. No babies for us but it was beautiful.

Pea, I won't forget to look up. Course I'm hoping that I'm looking up and craning my neck rather then flat on my back in the middle of the back yard either passing out/coming to or pissed! lol

Hey, Twinkla, combating nerves is all in the breathing; if you want to avoid collapsing, just make sure you breath out again after every breath in. Works every time.

You can do it. :P

Henry, any hints on how to remember to breath both in and out? Cause that's going to be the problem for me. To remember to do it.

Congrats all 'round. Staying calm is easy if you've practised any of the Zen disciplines for about 20 years... No? Well, I've always found a wee bit (emphasis on the wee) of alcohol, like one glass of your favourite wine, helps. And there's Prozac...

More seriously now, if I may presume to offer some advice from the perspective of my (ahem) ancient wisdom... I've said something similar before somewhere on these boards, but it bears repeating:

Obviously you know what it's like to be in love, or this wouldn't be happening. Sadly, you're not going to feel that way all the time. It takes too much energy, for one thing, and distracts you from other things in life that'll demand your attention. Ya gotta be friends, and I think it helps if you were friends first. When life together gets complicated and difficult--and it will, I promise--it's friendship that'll carry you over the rough spots and keep you together.

I speak from a nasty experience, but that was in another life... Look on the bright side: if you're friends as well as lovers, you'll never have to go through this again. Just get through it once, you'll be fine.

Sage advice Dex.

I may have to choose my least favourite wine or else it won't be 1 glass, and it won't be my dad walking me down the aisle so much as my dad carrying me down the aisle.\


Keep the advice coming......

Just ELOPE...quietly , secretly .......and you won't have to worry about remembering to perform basic breathing functions. The "wedding event and celebration' can go on as planned.. and you can make an appearance for the 'Last dance".

(kidding......

Ocean, I'd seriously considered it. Except it worked out like this......need a witness for both of us. Who? might as well be our kids. My mom and dad would be choked not to be invited. Better invite them. That's only 4. Except the fiance's mom will be mad if left out. K, that's 5. To invite my parents and not my siblings? Yikes! a really big no no. Best invite them. If we invite my siblings we have to invite the fiance's siblings.

And this is where we're at now. Still a small wedding. But not an elopment....too bloody many people. It all started out simple and small and it grew and it grew. Guilt. What a strong emotion.

understand that one, sweetie. Oh heck...... make the most of the day and have a blast. It is YOUR wedding, YOUR party.....and YOUR celebration of a new chapter in life. Let the bells ring, the balloons float, the drinks pour continuously, and fill the day with laughter, good cheer, good food and wonderful memories. (and make sure someone else cleans up the mess as you two take off for some quiet time by yourselves. ) Have someone take loads of pics...... the day will pass quickly .......and pics you will treasure.

Have a special day ...... and will be thinking of you..Congratulations to you both.......Love and life.

Hi Twila,

Congrats on the upcoming wedding. Just think about you and your new hubby and leave the rest to everyone else and everything will be OK. I too had a small intimate wedding with just family and best friends, it was the best time ever. So clear your mind all things that are not about hubby and enjoy yourself.

Congratulations, Twila.

There is a perfect and easy trick to avoiding stress on that special day of yours. Although the common theme in modern times is to declare the wedding day as a day that is all about the wedding couple while everybody else is just there as props (from what I gather, this is not what you plan, and I applaud you for it), it really isn't just about the bride and groom. It is about the gathering of friends and family to honour and celebrate the occasion your marriage, and the guests are as important as the 'stars'.

The trick of a stress-free wedding? Devote all your energies that day to your guests, making it the best day imaginable for them. By doing so, you will be relaxed and happy because your focus is on others. Your guests will be delighted, and much good energy will be created. Once you and your husband drive away for your honeymoon, you have all the time in the world to focus on just the two of you. I can guarantee a stress-free wedding day this way.

Oh how well I hear that....On the day Twila, just look in the mirror, smile to yourself and say..."today I will marry my best friend" and realize that it is true, then you should be able to skip down the isle



Truth is, I keep wishing my divorce would hurry up and become final, so I can marry my best friend, and give to him the love that I never knew I had in me before the opportunity arose for him to fall into my lap as more than my friend of 5 years who lived in Alberta with his psycho, I mean, girlfriend...yeah, that's it

This is your day twinks I know you won't be stopping by here upon your return I will now call you mrs. twinks....galaniomama and I will send them ballons up this afternoon, course we understand if you happen not to see them..who knows they might end up in holland, on your honeymoon.. :P

By all means marry. If you get a good husband , you will become very happy; if you get a bad one, you will become a philosopher--and that is good for any women. "
-Socrates

Have the best day ever twinks
