Show & Tell: Wedding Bells Ringing

Today, I am linking up with one of my favorite bloggers ever, Becky at From Mrs to Mama for her new Show & Tell linkup series.  The theme for today's Show & Tell is Wedding Bells Ringing, and anyone who knows me knows I love talking about my wedding, so this is right up my narcissistic alley!  Here goes!

Are you married? If so when did you get married, and tell us about your special day. If not? How would you describe your dream wedding?

I am married, to my favorite person in the whole wide world, my Handsome Husband.  We were married on February 26, 2011 (which, if you're counting makes yesterday, August 26, 2012 our year and a half anniversary!).  Our wedding was at a golf course in Fullerton, and it was the best day of my life.  It was fun, exciting, and beautiful and my wedding was my dream wedding, thanks to a fantastic Husband, and some very generous and loving parents. 

Show us some wedding pictures. Either yours or of some that you love.

You can see tons of wedding pictures all over this here blog!  Check this tag HERE for lots and lots of wedding posts!  Here are some of my most favorites from our special day:

I will forever love this photo taken of my Husband right before he came to the wedding venue and saw me for the first time - he looks so excited!

No tears walking down the aisle for this happy bride!

We did it!


One of the last photos of the night - nothing quite like a bride in a bar.

How about the engagement? Tell us your story. If not engaged, what's your dream proposal?

I love our engagement story.  But I'm still working on our love story, and would really like to save that post for when I get there in sequence!  Coming soon, promise and it's a good one!  Spoiler alert: I argued the entire way to our destination - I really had no idea what was coming!

If you wanna get caught up with our love story, you can check it out HERE!

Show us your wedding rings or an engagement photo! If not engaged/married ... show us your "dream" ring.

I love my rings - my engagement ring was my dream ring when I received it, and it still is!

Tell us why you think marriage doesn't work out for so many? What can we do to make things last?

I think part of the reason marriage doesn't work for so many is because people see an out.  By no means do I think divorce should be illegal or anything crazy, but it just seems to easy to so many to say "Eh, this is too hard, I'm out" and move on.  My Husband and I like to look at divorce as a non-option (not that it has even reared it's ugly head - we've only been doing this a year and a half!).  But regardless, marriage is hard, and if you think there's always the option of taking the easy way out, you might just do it.

I absolutely love your wedding dress! It looks amazing on you :)

My fiance and I are the same way about divorce - we have agreed to never (even jokingly) bring it up in our marriage, because you're right, too many people see it as an easy way out!

Mallory said...

I argued all the way to our engagement destination also! LOL! That's funny! Love all the pictures!

Erin said...

Beautiful bride :) And that pic of your hubby right before he saw you is PRICELESS, you really can just see the excitement on his face! Glad you linked up today!

Rachel said...

I think you're exactly right--my husband and I also agreed "Murder before divorce" before we got married. The murder part is a joke (don't be worried) but the no divorcing part isn't!

Love your walking down the aisle pic that is priceless! I completely agree that people view divorce as an out and they just don't fight for it in some cases.

Nicole said...

We finished our wedding night at the bar too! Great minds think alike!

You were such a gorgeous bride!

Lacie @thedanielsons said...

that "we did it pic" is awesome! Makes me wish I would have done something like that! way to cute :D

I couldn't agree more on the easy way out. you don't throw away something that can be fixed. I hope more people realize marriage is a commitment and promise, not something you do till your bored.
