15 Years Ago Today…

May 11th, 1991
They said it wouldn’t last!
on that note…
Thirteen Things About
1. My wedding day was the day before Mother’s Day and we left for our honeymoon on Mother’s Day.
2. My mother still hasn’t gotten over the fact that I would leave her on Mother’s Day.
3. Gordon and I paid for our own wedding. I wasn’t about to have my parents pay money when I was already an established career woman who had been living on her own for 11 years.
4. Since we were paying ourselves, I had to keep it to a limited budget.
5. My mom was the general manager of a major hotel at that time, so of course, I had my reception there at a highly discounted rate.
6. All the hotel rooms on the 6th floor were for wedding guests who wished to stay. Sure enough, every room on that floor was booked.
7. We had a suite, of course!
8. Believe it or not, I rented my wedding dress. Plus, I had taken the wedding dress I already had from my previous engagement (that is a whole other story) and they bought the dress from me and let me have the use of any wedding dress of my choosing for free.
9. My make up was done by the wife of the Fire Captain that I worked for in the Fire Department. She was a proffesional make up artist for a movie studio.
10. In exchange for her services for myself and all the bridesmaids, my mom gave her and her husband a HUGE suite for the whole weekend for free.
11. After the wedding reception was over, everyone went up to the 6th floor and it was one big party from room to room.
12. Three of my girlfriends got pregnant the night of my wedding.
13. If I had to do it all over again, I most definitely would!
