You may fret about those plastic grapes forever, but in the end you were married, and hopefully, you can be sealed soon. My first marriage was in the temple with my husband's parents and a few friends, but our reception was hundreds of miles away with my non-member family. No internet, Pinterest, or Zoom in those days. Suffice it to say, my mother did her best, but the cultural hall decor and refreshments were definitely not what I had in mind. Even my musicians canceled last minute. Most distressing was the photographer (family friend) took awful pictures. My dream of a large family photo like my cousin had was totally dashed to pieces. The physical trappings of a dream wedding weren't there, but when I was sealed to my second husband we had some amazing spiritual experiences, confirmed by some of his relatives who were in attendance. On a daily basis, we hope it is the covenants we've made and why that sustains us.
