I met Aly and David's parents and they are wonderful. I was very nervous, but there was no beating of any kind. I recieved lots of kisses on the cheek though! Jacinta asked me if my mother was going to walk be down the aisle and I had to inform her that my mother has passed on. I didn't know that in Spanish weddings, the groom gets walked down the aisle too. And Liz can't because she's in the wedding party. We'll figure something out!
Oh, and Deirdre, if you still want to be cooking, you should meet Aly's mother. She says she'd love to help you and she's used to the big family dinners back home so feeding so many people won't be a problem.
Aly decided she'd like to wear a black dress and veil as well, as was the custom before everyone decided white was in. She said I'm not allowed to show you the dress, but I can show you the picture I took her her trying on the veil this morning in the back yard.
Look how gorgeous she is.
I'm a very very lucky man.
