We couldn’t have bought the feeling of the person you love promising everything to you.

We couldn’t have bought the real, true smiles on the faces of people dearest to us.

We couldn’t have bought a pact with the weather to stop it from raining.

Nor could we have bought the rays of sunshine that came afterwards to light up our photographs.

We couldn’t have bought the generosity of our guests, at least not that done with real affection.

We couldn’t have bought the shooting star we saw over the lake in that private five minutes before our first dance.

We couldn’t have bought our way out of the hangover the next morning.

You can’t buy weddings. You have to make them.

    Love the dress — it would not work on my body, but such a nice combination of interesting and understated.

    Also, LMAO at “We couldn’t have bought our way out of the hangover the next morning.” Really hoping to avoid this myself, but not optimistic!

    Thanks so much everyone for your kind comments in relation to the pictures. :D But in agreement with several of you about the best bit must be the quote; “You can’t buy weddings. You have to make them.” Excellent thinking Holly. :D
