We have been happily married for
nearly 9 years now; yesterday we attended a good friend’s wedding ceremony and
reception which brought back memories of our special day.
When we got married we had no
kids, the morning of the wedding was relatively relaxing and we had plenty of
time to get dressed (and I got time to write my speech – nothing like leaving
it to the last minute!).
However yesterday a simple task
of getting my suit on while the Mrs was having a shower saw both the boys
wrestling in the clean and sharp suits I had just got them dressed in! Which
got me to thinking how much harder it would have been to get ready for our
wedding if we had kids!
Our friend has two boys too, but
she seemed very relaxed during the whole day, they had laid on food for all the
children at the perfect time and even laid on a sweets trolley for them to all
browse (although the sugar rush was “interesting”). They had inflatable
guitars, microphones and various dress up items to play around with while the
speeches were done.

If I was to get married now with
the knowledge I have as a parent our wedding day would have been very different
we would have had to cater for more kids, ensure there was entertainment laid
on, knowing the Mrs she would find something big, unique and expensive! The Mrs
probably still would not be able to relax as the boys have a tendency to run
wild for a crowd!
Yesterday we managed to drop the
boys off at the in-laws in the evening to return to the evening event, so we
could both chill and enjoy a drink or two….. well I actually hit the dance
floor, I don’t know what came over me but I sure do ache today!
