    Congrats, Miel! You’ll always have a special and unique story about your wedding day, and now you’ll have just have to have a big party later and potentially have two wedding anniversaries to celebrate every year!

    Vathena, thank you – that’s sweet of you to say and I appreciate it.

    I’ve gotten married in a courthouse twice now, where it was just the two of us (once for military reasons and once to make a Mexican wedding legal). Both times I also had a “wedding” with “people,” but the intimacy of just the two of you is kind of special and nice.

    I’m happy for you Miel! Congrats!! ETA: I asked the husband if we could get married at the courthouse almost daily leading up to our wedding. And we had an intimate ceremony (immediate family, his two grandparents, my one, and we each had a friend and their spouse/his friend married us).

    Also happening on May 15th and I’m oddly excited about, IDK why, I guess because I need something ridiculous and familiar right now… the new Scoob movie. I loved Scoobie Doo as a kid. This one apparently pays homage to Hannah Barbera. They even added the opening sequence last minute. I’m a dork. Whatever.

    Finally, @BGM, not only do I want you to make my Chicago rooftop space a garden oasis, I want you to decorate my condo.

    Haha, I keep seeing commercials for that movie and saying my puppy wants to watch it.

    Congrats Miel! It will be a great story. And really – you only need to see his eyes and they better be all full of tears because he’s so happy.

    Miel – Congratulations! I know the exact emotions you are going through.

    We only had three days notice for our cancelled wedding and I think that was a blessing. We didn’t have time to think – we just had to act. I have a lot of mixed feelings about the wedding we were supposed to have and the wedding we ended up having. But at the end of the day I got to marry my husband on my grandparents anniversary – and that was the ultimate goal.

    I will toast to you on May 15, and to my other friend who should have been getting married May 16, and all the other couples that gave up their days for all this.

    My only advice, not that you asked for it, is to make it as special as you can. We had time to eat breakfast together, I took a bubble bath. We had flowers from the grocery store. We got a cake and carry out Italian for our 7 guests. It’s your wedding day and it’s deserving of a celebration. Congratulations again !

    Thank you all! The update is that I have my dress! We picked it up half an hour ago, and it fits! I guess there’s no way my weight can change between now and tomorrow, so that’s one less thing to worry about 😉


    @veritek33
    yeah, I think over the last few days we’ve been able to start planning ways to make our day special. We bought a bottle of champagne, some cool ingredients to cook with and we planned a mini photoshoot in our living room (it’s going to be raining tomorrow…). It was hard at first to think about making the day special because we were so worried it would get cancelled and we would be disappointed all over again. But now, it’s happening! So the excitement is finally taking over.
