I on the other hand, burst into tears at the first sign of a joyful
occasion...weddings, births, anniversaries, the National Anthem,
Hallmark commercials, ....

I'm not sure why that is, and  I really do try to prevent it, but the
floods come anyway, always have.  :-\  The only wedding I *didn't* cry
at was my own!

Mine's the only one I *did* cry at!  And not much, even then.  I just
wanted my dad there, and this was the time it really hit that he was
gone forever.

Kate, I sympathize.  I cried at DD's wedding in 2004, and it wasn't
only for joy at her marrying a fine man, but also regretting my DH
wasn't there as well.  He would have been overjoyed awith our new
son-in-law.

I'm lucky that Dad knew and approved of Alan, and always treated him
like a member of the family.  They had a lot of interests in common, and
enough differences to keep the conversation lively!  I never had to
worry about leaving them in each other's company, for all that Alan was
extremely shy when I first knew him.

I agree you are very lucky!  My DH had little in common with our first
son-in-law, aside from both loving Susan.

This new one though...he and DH would have really enjoyed long talks
about restoring old cars, camping, etc.  DD didn't meet him until
almost two years after DH was killed.  Made the wedding a very
emotional day for both of us.  I love my new SIL enough for two, so
all is well.  ;-)

Yes, I have 2 sons as well, and it is so hard to pin the boutonnière on
their wedding day tux.

Well done ... fancy, but not too adult, plus
great color for her, and of course a pretty
girl.

Thanks Pat.  She originally had her heart set on a medium blue.  Till we
draped a few different ones over her shoulders in front of the mirror at
Hancock's.  Medium blues turn her pastey and grey.  :(  We actually found
the sheer first and fell in love with the color (even more so after "trying
it on.")  Then we hunted till we found satin to match.  :)  And I was really
concerned about getting her into a dress that didn't make her look too grown
up.  We had the dress code to work with...but more importantly we had Mama
and Daddy to please too.  ;)  There were a few times during the design
process Daddy chimed in with "No.  You are 14.  You will not wear a dress
like that."  heh heh  Gotta love him!!
