A big congrats goes out to our newest Shopping Spree Winner…Glenda! She’ll have tons of fun spending $500 at AnnsBridalBargains.com on anything from save the dates and wedding invitations to accessories and favors.
But first, you have to hear the story behind their courtship and proposal! Glenda and Andy have known each other since they were kids. They grew up in the same small town, went to church together and occasionally spent time with the same friends. They never dated and went their separate ways to college. After 15 years, both returned home, the stars aligned and the dating began. He won her heart treating her like a princess — helping her study, taking care of her when she was sick and bringing her daisies simply because they’re her favorite. Being a good Christian man was the icing on top (something she always wanted).
Now, for the proposal story! This is good.
While Andy wanted Glenda to pick out her ring, he also wanted a proper proposal. Andy first attempted to embarrass her on the Jumbotron at her favorite team’s game, the Arkansas Razorbacks. Unfortunately, it wasn’t in the cards. He then worked with the local radio station, which was having a game party at a local restaurant in Little Rock. The radio DJ jumped on the bar at halftime to have some fun with trivia, but threw in an extra trivia question at the end — “Does anyone have a birthday on October 13?” Glenda shyly raised her hand. The DJ then asked her to come to the bar so he could introduce her to the crowd. He gave her a huge bouquet of heart-shaped balloons, a restaurant glass and had the bar sing happy birthday. After all that embarrassment, she began to walk back to her seat and the DJ stopped her just in time to see Andy walking around the corner carrying a huge bouquet of flowers. The DJ introduced Andy as Glenda’s fiancé, and Glenda corrected him saying, “He’s not my fiancé yet.” Then, Andy got down on one knee and said, “I will be if you marry me.” Naturally the girl said YES!
And the dream wedding…
Glenda has been dreaming of a wedding on the beach at sunset, and Andy is delivering! The lovely couple will get married in the Cayman Islands the day after Thanksgiving, on the beach, at sunset. And while the couple will miss the biggest Razorbacks game of the year, I’d say a wedding on the beach is way better. Plus, a fabulous reception is planned for the return home.
Here’s to a few dreams come true! Congratulations, Glenda and Andy!
