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.

  • Laura C

    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!

    Viewers of this testimony should please stop by and rejoice with me.

    My name is Melisa Shawn from Usa, i never believe in love spell or
    magic powers because i believed all of them was scammers and fake until when i
    experienced heart brake with the father of my kids and i came across Prophet Ibu of divinesolutioncenter@hotmail.com
    or divinesolutioncenter01@gmail.com a great online spell caster who just helped me recently to rescue my
    lost relationship with my Husband who broke up with me for good three
    and a half years. When i contacted him, i told him everything that
    happened between me and my Husband and without demanding anything from
    me, he decided to perform a spell cast and after 24 hours surprisingly
    my Husband called me on my mobile and started speaking with me in a good
    manner and as i am sharing this testimony now we are back again into
    our relationship and i’m the happiest woman on earth for Prophet Ibu had done a great and wonderful thing in my life. Come and rejoice with me and if you wish to contact Prophet Ibu for any help i will drop his email ids(divinesolutioncenter@hotmail.com and divinesolutioncenter01@gmail.com) or you contact him through his personal website on

    hello my child
    1.has Someone placed an evil curse on you, your lover or family; and I
    can remove it and it will only cost you some things.
    2.Someone has used roots against you or crossed you up in a prior life.
    3. Someone has burned black candles against you and you need my
    protection! 4. The curse is on your money, send me your money and I
    will cleanse it for you! 5.I am the only one who can help you with
    this situation, and if you do not accept my help your wish will not come
    true! 6.Steer clear of those folks in the tabloids, it is very costly
    to advertise in them and they are extremely competitive and crafty at
    getting your business. 7.Anyone who charges more than a nominal fee
    for their services are not trying to help you, they are only helping
    themselves to your hard earned money. contact ogbuduspelltemple@gmail.com
    for help and you shall testify
