    next July we will b celebrating our 25th anniversary. we have 3 wonderful grown kids wince this day. Nathaniel, 23, Nicholas, 20 & Laura 20.... & by this date we will b grandparents for the first time.
    will have to watch my recorded tape of the wedding to get as close to as I can with things we done.....(my uncle that has gone to b with the Lord, taped it)
    on that wedding day, we were married in the city park where I had 27 steps to come down... the men came across the park to the ladies as they walked down steps.. we stood 3 ft from a natural spring of water... we r doing it again in the same spot yes, we r renewing the same vows, the same Pastor, & the same wedding party.... with the exception of a few that has already gone on to be with Jesus...... so I just have to have a few to fill in... not certain, on our attire....as I know I can not fit into the dress I wore 25 years ago. I was a whopping sz 2, lol lol lol now in a 14. but would really like to wear the closest to it as I can get. as I had a cute little hat with no veil. but had a beautiful 15 ft train behind me. the girls were in different pastel colored dresses, some were long some were short. all men were in tuxes, (& I know that's not happening) this time... so am thinking to do jeans & white shirts with the girls in blue jean skirts with pastel colored shirts.... not sure, but me in a blue jean apparell of some kind....
    as for the reception, we will have to do it here at my home, as the building we used, is no longer standing... lol lol
    am up for any idea's of how to do some of the decor as I have a few pics I want to display & my Aunt Nancy, passed a few weeks ago, she bought us a huge set of wine glasses & out of the 25 yrs, only 3 were broken, so I am standing them upside down, in front of the kids' pics with their names on those, with ribbons, or something on them....
    I have this event & baby shower & then the birth to worry about before. but all at the same time going thru this mind of mine... lol lol

    any comments & suggestions would be grateful. as I add more to this, I know I have forgotten something....

    just having to do something different clothes wise. but want to b pretty logical....the maid of honor was in pink so the best man will b in a pink shirt, the bridesmaid #1 was in a pastel color her groomsman will b in the same color.....

    & I have decided to have straw out back to have as a kind of backyard thing..... of course there will not be a tid bit of alcohol at this reception.... just haven't figure out where to have this in front where there is nothing.. but hill, or in back yard in different parts set up for different things....
    lol ol idea's running wild....

    I have purchased goblets, picture frames, platters, bells for tables, floating candles for tables, & today I purchased 100 bottles of bubbles for $3.00. am getting soo excited.
    thinking we r doing black capris for girls & black pants for guys & shirts that match for the couples that walked together, to match what we wore 25 years ago. lol lol
    I have also purchased a few firepits for the reception out in my back yard. as its all falling together.
    am going to have a table with memories of our 25 years together, under a tent like, with 25 hilium balloons with memories on them.
    all kinds of bargains for this occasion.
    just a few things done but am on the right track with this date approaching very quickly.
    thanks for all the encouraging words.

    When my Aunto got remarried- they did a color scheme of black and white.

    All the men in the party wore black jeans and white shirts.
    Her bridesmaids wore black dresses.

    They asked everyone attending to wear black/white- or one or the other.

    It looked really nice- and was very casual!

    Sounds like you have some good ideas and plans going!

    Good luck and Congratulations!!!!!!
