I DO ! I DO !
Greetings from Sepia Saturday and the world of romance, courtly love, weddings and he loves me, he loves me not.
But wait, what's this man saying? "Does anyone know where the bride is? Help, it's nearly time for.... I do! I do!"
The wedding march is about to begin. Has anyone seen the bride?My idea of the theme this week begins long before the vows take place. You know all the fooling around and games they play with courtly love. Yes indeed before marriage there's always a bit of planning, plotting, dreaming, scheming, wishing, daisy picking and etc.
As I was walking down the street one day
In Sepia Saturday land -
I heard a man ask.....
Does anybody really know what time it is?
Does anybody really care?
Yes! It's time to think about
Our first stop is with a couple throwing caution to the wind by eloping. Often without telling their family or friends.
"I will catch you, I promise! Just let me put this hammer down first!"
The courtship can be hard, especially when her parents believe there are better choices for a husband.
Sometimes, there are far too many single women.....
"No! You can't have him. He's mine!"
He loves me, he loves me not, he loves me, he loves me not, he loves...
Then there are those poor sad heart-broken lovers that......
The caption reads, Translating a love letter from a Boston Girl-"Now does that mean 'yes' or 'no'?"
"She said NO!"
It's so heartbreaking when love is not returned. Better to discover sooner than later, don't you think?
"Oh my dear won't you be mine?"
Surely, her thoughts are on another.
Who could she be dreaming of?
Perhaps, Mr. Tin man has stolen her heart.
As a very last resort for finding Mr. or Mrs. Right
one could ask, Cupid.
"What did you say? Are you totally sure? Just walk outside and he'll be there?"
....and so she walked outside and to her surprise....
"I wouldn't wear these knickers for anyone else but you! Oh my dear sweet Irish Rosie will you be mine forever?"
But of course she said yes. She's been dreaming of her very own wedding day since before she could speak!
It's not just about the couple and vows and the happily ever after, oh no. It's also about all the trimmings and festivities leading up to I do! I do!
living happily ever after.
