I'm married!

Had a fantastic time, beautiful wedding, awesome honeymoon. Only hitch in the entire thing was the classic "Groom forgets the rings and has to get married with comedy replacements".

But at least it gave my in-laws something to mock me for for the rest of my life, because they didn't have enough already.


Funny synch: I was just reading your story about the engagement again last night and wondering when the wedding was or if I had missed it.

You're off to a good start with the rings.

For our wedding, I was in Florida, site of the wedding, DFH was in West Germany. He flew home a few days before the wedding, and as he unpacked his bag, he mentioned he had forgotten something...a suit, I can't remember what.

I replied, as long as you remembered the wedding ring.

He looked like a deer caught in the headlights.

I thought he was joking.

We went shopping for a replacement ring the day before the wedding.

Our comedy at the wedding came from my sister tying the rings on the pillow so tightly the best man (our favorite Redneck who had flown in from Japan for the wedding) had to pull out a pocket knife and cut them off.

Always ;-)
married 21 years and counting with two wedding rings
