Another milestone- Major this time!

Hi peeps, sorry I haven't updated in a while. Thanks Rinsola for checking up on me.

I have some very great news for y'all. I have crossed yet another milestone. Hehe You can check here for a previous milestone of mine.

On the 12th of January '08, I got married to my best friend. :) It was a glorious day and I enjoyed every minute of it. I was just a tiny weeny bit cranky (which is expected from all brides, I think) but thanks to my chief brides maid for calming me down always. More kudos to writefreak cuz without her I am not sure our friends wouldn't have had anything to eat at the reception. Another story for another day.

Anyway like I was saying, our day was great and most of my wishes came through-

  • Our bridal march song was "When God gave me you" by Jesse Campbell; T.D Jakes. T'was really lovely with all the long list of people walking down the aisle which included my only surviving grandparent (Mama). Can't wait to see the video :)

  • Still on the bridal march, I had my flower girls throw petals on the floor..even the pastor was taken by

  • Our First dance- we danced to "I was made to love you" by Gerald Levert... that turned out better than I expected, except for the few times my hubby was stepping on my

The wishes that didn't come through-

  • I wanted a canopy for our friends to sit in, with favours I had ready on their tables- lai lai...people no gree...ok the canopy existed quite alright but you know Naija weddings now, they never respect the sign "Reserved". Grhhh

  • Spraying of money- lol...with all the adverts on Naija telly on arresting people that spray money at weddings and the fact that our chairman's wife (who was present) is a Director General of CBN, this wish was no where near reality. We got people to drop money in trays though- BORING!

Anyhu, above all I want to thank God all mighty for making Jan 12 a reality for my hubby, myself and our families. It was a beautiful day I must say.

Hubby and I are looking forward to a bright future together. :)

  13. awwwww...congratulations!!!

  14. 'Aloted',

    Thanks for 'stopping by'.

    But I don't get you o. What's wrong with dropping money in trays? They do that in church, so I think it's nice to see it being extended to weddings too. The hope is that one day, they'll have portable credit card terminals at weddings so that people can donate money in an even more civilised manner.

    But I'm forgetting my manners... Kongratulations! May the joy you experienced at your wedding be multiplied many times during your marriage.

  15. AWWWWWWWWW Congratulations...
