At the Missionary Alliances Church in our home town, even though we were Members at the baptist church I was raised in and that we meet at.

4 DAYS.

20. If you were to do your wedding over, what would you change?

My wedding was perfect so I wouldn't want to change that, but if I ever was to get married again(TO THE SAME GUY) I think I would like a summer wedding, in a sleeveless grown on the lake. OR on a beach at the ocean(and I wouldn't be inviting 200+ people. It would just be either the two of us or the two of us plus our kids and parents and our grandparents. I did the big invite everyone you know, if we ever renew our vowels I would do the really small but pretty sort of thing. BUT I don't have plans on doing that LOL.

NO COMMENT!!!!! I VALUE MY STUFF.

21. What side of the bed do you sleep on?

This is a trick question LOL. If I'm standing at the foot of the bed looking at it I sleep on the left side but if I"m in the bed laying down I'm the right side. When we 1st got married that was flip flopped but after we had kids we changed sides so I could get to the babies faster.

it was white, long pretty, lots of beads and stuff. Long sleeves with beads all the way down the arms it sort of came into a triangle at my hands Long stain and lace and beaded train, There was a big cut out heart in the back with tear drop beads handing from it, and a little cut out heart in the front. It was the dress I had always had in mind growing up when thinking about my wedding.

DON'T THINK I WAS ALLOWED TO WEAR ONE

I did the silk flowers in my colors of black, white and a bit of pink thrown in, and my mom did all the flower for my wedding(and my cousins and my sisters) she did all the ones we carried and did the whole church also.
