It’s My Wedding Blog Serial: Heidi & Brittany – Why This Feels So Right!

In the spirit of loving friends, famliy, fun & self-deprecating humor, we are pleased to introduce a new series to our Gay Wedding Fodder readers: It’s My Wedding And I Can Cry If I Want To. Several couples have expressed an interest in sharing the stories of their wedding journies with Gay Wedding Fodder and we are pleased to share this space with them. Each is in a different place in the wedding planning process but all love to weave a good yarn and all are happy to share with us their trials & tribulations, inspirations & tips, and tears of joy and tears of disappointment or dismay. Perhaps you’ll recognize a bit of your relationship in these intallments?
Why this feels so right!
by Heidi
So, we decided to jump in, forget the big show, and just get married. It’s 9 days away and counting now.
We got our tickets, told our parents (my dad will be there along with two of my sisters!), and booked a car rental. And things just continued to fall into place from there.
We found a marriage commissioner, Anne Moore, who is going to perform our ceremony at her home, facing the park and the ocean, in Vancouver.
My dress has been fitted, Brittany’s suit has been bought and prepared, the rings have been bought and sized, I found shoes and jewelry for next to nothing, and we both have our old, new, borrowed, and blue. There hasn’t been a single moment of frustration blocking our path, which is night and day from how we were going to do it before.
Great story…I had to get a strapless bra that fits under the dress, so I get my best friend to come along with me, thinking we would be wandering around for hours trying to find the perfect bra. But we walk into the first store, dress in tow, and I find a bra that might work. And it did! FIRST TRY! It just reinforces the fact that this is so right…it’s running so smoothly!
Now let’s just hope we don’t have a problem getting over the border!
