I missed this somehow, too! I am so happy for you, Cat. You have truly found love and I believe that both you and Carl are fine people and will have a long and happy marriage. Your parents have set a good example for you. Your ring is beautiful! Best wishes to you.

Congratulations Cat and Carl. I'm wondering how I missed this announcement. I was starting to worry about you guys. Glad to hear the happy news.

I've picked my wedding dress! It's too big, but Mamma will tailor it to me.

We like medieval clothing, and here is the site:

Fair Maidens Dress - 100510 by Medieval Collectibles

The chemise is also $65.00 and so I am getting a wedding dress for under $200.00!!

That dress is great Cat. Will Carl be wearing medieval clothing too? What about your parents and guests?

And our wedding rings! I tried on the sapphire wedding band I had, and we have decided to give that to our children. Carl wanted me to have my own wedding band.

Mine:



Carl's ring:



My parents and Carl's mother approved of these and my dress! I am so happy!

With love,
~Cat

Oh, no. They will wear anything they feel is appropriate. Carl is still working of picking his clothing, but his will be medieval also.

We will marry on the deck of Catina II, and my Uncle Nicu is Carl's sponsor. Our families and friends and our fishing crew will be in attendance. After the wedding, I will lay my flowers upon a grave at the sailor's church in Constanta and we will be hosted at a very nice restaurant, everyone!

Papa is paying for the meal, and the date will be set when all of us arrive to Romania. We will be married sometime in July!

With love,
~Cat

How exciting, Cat. You'll look beautiful. It brings to mind lovely memories of when Glenn and I were married. I loved my gypsy outfit I wore as my wedding attire.
