When my cousin got married, he sent me an invitation that he got from https://www.123print.co.uk/wedding-stationery/invitations. He kept asking me when I was getting married, and I kept telling him that I probably wasn’t. I was perfectly fine with just dating at the time, but my cousin told me that I would probably meet someone who I would want to marry at the drop of a hat. At his wedding, the bride’s garter was tossed and it landed right in my hands. I wasn’t trying to catch it, but somehow I did. I never really believed in the superstition of the person catching the garter belt getting married, not did I believe the bouquet superstition, but my cousin did.
While at the wedding, I talked to the person who caught the bouquet. She was a friend of the bride and it was my first time meeting her. She seemed nice enough, but I wasn’t thinking about marrying her or even dating her at the time. We just laughed about catching the garter and bouquet and didn’t think much about any future plans. A couple of months later after our meeting at the wedding, we met again at a bookstore. I was looking for a book on computer programming and she was looking for a book on video editing. Later that day we went to a coffee shop and had a fun time just talking with each other.
The woman from the wedding and I saw each other a lot more after meeting in the bookstore and we eventually started dating. I still wasn’t thinking about the superstitions, but before I knew it, we became engaged to be married. My cousin had the biggest reassuring grin on his face when I told him. I wonder if anyone will meet at our wedding and get together.
