Wedding Bells

I am happy as can be about my son’s upcoming wedding, and as the mother of the groom, I want to look my best.  We went down this road seven years ago when my daughter got married, and it was truly one of the most joyous days of my life.

So, in honor of the big day, I did the following:

Found the dress and tried it on:


Picked out the song for the Mother-Son dance (what a sob fest that was!)  I Hope You’ll Dance by Leanne Womack.

Now, all I have to do is think of something to say!

Any suggestions for wedding toasts or special words to share with the bride and groom on their special day?

    The hair is glamorous, and so is the dress. Very, very nice. Is it an icy blue, or silver? I wasn’t quite sure due to the lighting.
    About words, I went to a 50th wedding anniversary on Saturday. One person used “special dates” and said a sentence or two about each. 1963 when he first met the wife (he’d known her hubs since elementary school) then I think it it was 1964 best man at their wedding, 1966 their firstborn, and maybe there were a couple more. But it was nice, very sweet.
    I’m hopeless at making a speech. : )

  2. Hi Robena – here we are again, just the two of us. LOL. The dress is silver as my future daughter-in-law’s colors are deep purple and silver.

    I lost sleep last night thinking of things to say, but I will keep is short and sweet and not too preachy!

    thanks for commenting.

    Silver. That will be lovely. And I like the idea of deep purple with silver, should be gorgeous. I want photos. : )
