Gretchen gives us all the details about planning her parent's anniversary.

on Apr 10, 2011

Mom really did not believe the ring was real, she actually thought it was a prop. My parents have never lived a very flamboyant lifestyle, although I am sure many times in their lives they could have. I love that about them, they are down to earth, not materialistic and content to just have each other and family. They have always taught me the true meaning of being happy and content with life no matter what you have financially. They shared their first dance again together (video posted at my site as well), and we had a great dinner planned for them with a wedding cake and champagne toast as well after the ceremony! I brought all my linens, china, and crystal from my home in order to save money to have this perfect setting for them. I brought candles and pictures to set up on the table and it turned out gorgeous (you can see those pics on my site as well for ideas).
Honestly, we did have some great people step up to make some parts of this amazing, but overall all we did was surround them with all their memories and it made a perfect weekend for them!

It was by far one of the most memorable and fun events I have ever planned, and my parents say it is one they will never forget!

Thanks again for all the support and love from you guys as we continue to share our lives with you every week!

Xoxo,

Gretchen Christine
