My husband and I celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary yesterday. We were married on Saturday, 30t August, 1986 at 4pm at St. Matthews Catholic Church, Windsor. The reception was at Fairfield House in Windsor. It was really formal, but that was the way things were 'done' then.
Don't you just love the pink dresses, all taffeta and lace, and the boys cravats and tails :-)
There were so many things to do - select the invitations and get them printed, choose a lavish cake, decide on the bouquets, book the reception and a pianist, hire cars, and on and on.
I think that it can be much simpler now-a-days. Weddings can be more relaxed and fun. It's nice to look back on though. My page boy and flower girl (my youngest cousins) are now both married with children of their own and I lost touch with both my matron-of-honour and bridesmaid. My sister didn't make the cut to be in the wedding party as she was very pregnant with my nephew ( I really think that she didn't want to be seen in a hideous pink dress ...LOL). We still see the best man (Tony's brother) and occasionally Tony sees the groomsman.
Happy anniversary to me and Tony.
