Staind - Tangled Up In You (album: The Illusion of Progress 2008)

This is another great song by Staind! The perfect Valentine’s Day song! This is for my Hubby. I hope he likes it. It might be too mushy for him to handle…it’s the only song that really describes how I feel about him.

It’s about time I’ll tell you about my surprise wedding. Yep I didn’t know I was getting married! My hubby and I have been together for many years and one day he has decided that it’s time to do the right thing by our parents and get married. So instead of proposing in the normal cheesy way he told me in front of a few friends that he will never marry me! of course I got offended a little bit but I thought it through and I’ve decided this piece of paper doesn’t mean anything anyway and as long as we are happy and wake up every day next to each other then It’s really fine. I was pretty sure our parents will be disappointed but you can’t keep everyone happy all the time.

 Anyway Behind the scenes he was planning a surprise wedding for me! First he was planning to get married overseas with our family and friends. But things didn’t work out the way he planned and he had some difficulties. Basically no one agreed to marry us before I complete a woman seminar with a rabbi, some ridicules religion thing. So he had to change his plans. He decided that first we are going to get married with a celebrant in Australia and then he can surprise me with a big wedding overseas. So he told me that he wants to surprise the parents and get married in Australia and then visit everyone overseas. I was very shocked that he changed his mind and he wanted to get married. Then we arranged a quick nice ceremony in Sydney. A month after we were heading overseas.  when we were on the plane he mentioned to me that today he wants to see all our friends and family. I got really upset because I couldn’t understand how we going to see so many people in one day. I was also really concerned about our parents’ reaction to our wedding without them in Australia. I was also struggling to decide which of the parents we should surprise first. As we walked towards the arrivals section at the airport all our family and our friend from Australia was waiting for us. they were all wearing T-Shirts with our names and photo which said that we are getting married today.my father handed me our wedding invitation which was designed by my Hubby and it said that it’s a surprise wedding and the bride doesn’t know. I was told that today I was getting married! We had two wedding photographers that were waiting for us and took a video of my reaction! I was so confused I was ready to go back to the plane! It was the most amazing feeling I have ever felt. Pure adrenalin, I was stocked! Every time I think about it I can still feel the excitement that I had on that day. Anyway, I was sent to a beauty salon and picked up a beautiful dress that was chosen by my Mum. My Hubby went to buy himself a suit and from there we got to the venue which was absolutely stunning! If I had to plan my own wedding I could never even dream about a venue as beautiful as this. as we were walking down the aisle our song "so far away" by Staind was playing in the background.that was probably one of my favourite moments on that day. Everything was perfect. We had around 200 or even more people at our wedding. It was like a fairy tale, I could never even dare dreaming about a wedding like this. It was absolutely perfect! I wish we can do it all over again. I cannot believe how he managed to trick me and keep everything a secret for such a long period and arrange all of this. He had the help of our parents and both of our sisters.  everything was just amazing and I feel like I can never thank him enough for the most amazing day of my life. I always knew that he is not the typical guy and he is very creative and everything about him is quite different and he doesn’t like the boring routine stuff but you have to be completely mad in your head to come up with such a crazy unheard of idea! back to the song...My love, this song is for you. I hope you enjoy it and I hope we will continue to celebrate our love every single day…
