There was a movie that came out in 2000 called Pay It Forward. It was a fantastic warm-hearted flick with Kevin Spacey and Helen Hunt. The concept was "When someone does you a big favor, don't pay it back... Pay It Forward." Simple enough.
Well my Bride, April, wanted to pay it forward with a twist, for one of my upcoming brides.
Drenched with the stresses of wedding planning, she dedicated her self to research, planning and making the best damn wedding she could. She poured herself over Brides, TheKnot
and Grace Ormonde Magazines, looking for the perfect idea, for the perfect wedding. Then she had an epiphany, and planned to elope instead.
So she tossed all those books, magazines, seating worksheets, and planning journals. But kept one special book. The ZEN Bride.
This is where it gets really sweet and mushy. April says that she wanted to dedicate this book to one of my Brides'. It was her way of having this gift of insight passed on to other brides in need.
She signed it inside "I dedicate this book to one of Holly's Brides. With Love, April"
I am giving it to a special bride tomorrow. I know she will fully appreciate the idea and pass it on to someone after giving her dedication.
