Weddings and Romance!
To me, as a true romantic, weddings are always special no matter if they're elopements or big fancy shindigs, as long as there is love shining from the couples hearts everything else doesn't matter so much. There was definitely a lot of love in the air Saturday. July 31st must have been "the day," hey even Chelsea Clinton tied the knot!
Below I've featured some miscellaneous wedding stuff that I like besides the romance of it all, including some things from my cousins wedding Saturday!
Bride and Grooms first dance,
Leather and Lace by Stevie Nicks and Don Henley
And my personal favorite, the bridal party dance:
All I Ask of You from The Phantom of the Opera
Ok so who doesn't love a pretty dress and too me nothing is more gorgeous than a wedding gown. My tastes tend to lean towards the more traditional type gowns, I love lace on a dress!
Check out my fave from Maggie Sottero!
Yummmm! Isn't this a gorgeous cake?
Since this is a book blog I figured I had better include a wedding story in the mix! Here's one of my favorites that is being re-released with a new cover from Thomas Nelson in 2011. Not sure how I feel about the new cover since it kinda looks like the bride is picking her teeth but the story is so cute!!
The Convenient Groom
by Denise Hunter
She wrote the book--literally--on finding the right mate. But does she really understand what love's about?
Five hours before her Nantucket beach wedding--and on the eve of her big book launch--celebrity marriage counselor Kate Lawrence has everything in place.
Everything, that is, but the groom. She might not have a career, either, when her nationwide audience finds out their marriage guru has been left at the altar.
Enter Lucas Wright, who offers to stand in for the missing husband-to-be and marry her. Kate's desperate enough to agree--although she's sure this Mr. Wright is completely wrong for her. Can they pull it off? And why would Lucas marry her in the first place?
With her life spinning out of control, Kate wonders what good her carefully laid plans are if they only lead to chaos. Could it be that "Dr. Kate" doesn't know the first thing about love? When she seeks God's will instead of her won, Kate finally discovers true and lasting love.
***********************I could go on and on about the flowers, decorations, the church, etc. but that would take at least a few days worth of typing and it's almost my bedtime.
So what are some of your favorite things about weddings? What was the favorite part of your wedding? If you're single, what's your wedding dream? Your dream dress? Come on, as readers of romance I know y'all have thought about weddings at some point even if you've never been to one or are single. I'd love your thoughts on anything wedding related. Don't be shy! :-D
