The Wedding Meme Tag from Annie!
  1. Where/How did you meet? We met the first day of our sophomore year in college. We were commuters that year and were hanging out with some other commuters on the third floor of the Student Union at Southeast Missouri State University.
  2. How long have you known each other? In August, it will be 20 years.
  3. How long after you met did you start dating? About 2 months. I was the one to ask him out, by the way!
  4. How long did you date before you were engaged? 1 year
  5. How long was your engagement? From October to July--that's 9 months.
  6. How long have you been married? We will celebrate 18 years on July 1st.
  7. What is your anniversary? See #6
  8. How many people came to your wedding reception? Around 150
  9. What kind of cake did you serve? It was a pretty white cake with pink roses.
  10. Where was your wedding? First General Baptist Church in Advance, Missouri. My uncle was pastor there and that is where I was attending at the time. My husband's father actually performed the ceremony. He is an Assembly of God minister.
  11. What did you serve for your meal? We did not have a meal--just cake, nuts, mints, and punch.
  12. How many people were in your wedding party? I had to look at pictures to see--I honestly didn't remember--5 Bridesmaids/Groomsmen, 1 candle lighter, a ring-bearer and a flower girl.
  13. Are you still friends with them all? All the women were family except for one of them. I am in contact with everyone except I haven't seen or spoken with one of my cousins in 3 years and I haven't seen or spoken to the one that wasn't related to me in 10 years. The guys were mostly Air Force cadets--we are still in touch with 2 of them--but not very often.
  14. Did your spouse cry during the ceremony? No.
  15. Most special moment of your wedding day? B sang to me.
  16. Any funny moments? Not really, I did tell my dad before hand that, "I don't want to do this." He said, "Oh, yes you do--come on." And B did have fun smearing cake in my face.
  17. Any big disasters? Not really, I didn't hire a very good photographer though, and it poured rain after the reception.
  18. Where did you go on your honeymoon? We went to Nashville, TN--I don't remember for how long--a few days.
  19. How long were you gone? See no. 18.
  20. If you were to do your wedding over, what would you change? I would have a small wedding, with a fitted dress, and with a much better photographer. I would also take a longer honeymoon.
  21. What side of the bed do you sleep on? Left side
  22. What size is your bed? King size.
  23. Greatest strength as a couple? Honesty--we don't keep secrets--except the holiday kind.
  24. Greatest challenge as a couple? Dealing with the things that come up because we don't keep secrets!!
  25. Who literally pays the bills? Me.
  26. What is your song? We don't have one--but I do tear up when I hear Endless Love because it was sung at our wedding.
  27. What did you dance your first dance to? We didn't have a dance at our wedding, but our first dance, as a couple, was to "Lady in Red". That's a story in and of itself. We don't dance anymore.
  28. Describe your wedding dress. It was white, full in the skirt, fitted and beaded in the bodice.
  29. What kind of flowers did you have at your wedding? They were white and started with a 'C'--I really don't remember, but they were very pretty. Maybe they were camelias.
  30. Are your wedding bands engraved? Nope, never occurred to us.
  31. How old were you when you got married? 2 months shy of 21--and I would do it again--in a heartbeat.

Lovely. Next to having children, my wedding is my #1 memory. It's nice to live vicariously, too.

What a sweet couple you two are.
Did you notice we were married within two weeks of each other?
That is funny (what your dad said)...
It was hard for me to think of a weakness... I mean we have our pet fights from time to time but it is usually just because I am always right... no particular subject, just the same outcome. :o)
Thanks for playing, loved reading it!

Loved reading these answers! Too bad you didn't have a good photographer to get a great picture of the cake smeared in your face! :)
