The unexpected benefits of "getting legalled" before our wedding

The impetus behind our legalling came upon us quite unexpectedly: I became aware of a scholarship available to military spouses. The catch: I wouldn't become a military spouse until my after the deadline to apply for the scholarship had passed. So we got legalled. As expected, having the ability to now apply for this scholarship is a wonderful thing. But something completely unexpected happened through this experience that I did not anticipate.

Becky & Shannon's Southern music and paper flowers wedding

This singer/pianist duo loves performing and it totally shows in this musical wedding in a theater. We're talking sheet music flowers, treble heart cake toppers, super professional-looking, and headshots of the "wedding cast." But my favorite part of all is that they had MUSICAL VOWS! You've gotta see how they did it. Plus, if you've ever had a problem finding something dapper and non-dressy to wear to your lesbian wedding, you may have a… "semi-butch quandary!"

My husband's ex-wife is his Best Woman

When John and I got married, our wedding party consisted of one person each. My Maid of Honor was my best friend of twenty years, Kate. His Best Woman was his ex-wife, Katie. My biggest concern was that people would mix up their names. Since then, I have been told a dozen times, "You let his ex-wife be his Best Woman? That's so weird! I could never do that." As if it's common knowledge that all ex-wives are evil and all new wives should be jealous of them and hate them.
