Dear Mom and Dad,
How do I put into words what my wedding day meant to me and the enormous gratitude I have for everything you did! For so long, I dreamt of the day when Aiden and I would say ―I do and then you made my dream come true. Your support, financially and emotionally, has always been there for me.
I have so many fond memories of all of us working together for the wedding. I will always remember how you focused on what Aiden and I wanted. There were fun times, silly times, hard work times and times of pure joy – and you were always there for me.
Mom, shopping with you for dresses was so special – where did you get all your patience and energy! Dad, I‘ll always remember what you said to me before we walked down the aisle. And there are a hundred more memories, all because of you two. celpipmaterial.com
Our wedding day was an unbelievable celebration with my family and friends. What memories I will always have!
Thank you for the wedding and reception, and thank you for the washer and dryer you gave us. Laundromat days are over – hooray – because of your very generous and practical gift.
I love you and adore you for everything you did for October 29, 2011. Most of all, thank you for being the extraordinary example of how rich and full married life can be. Your marriage has been a rock in my life and I will work hard to create a marriage as wonderful as the one I have witnessed under your roof.
