Being in the wedding industry for almost 5 years, I have seen a bunch of crazy and creative weddings happening around. From the bridal entrance on a horse to the groom entrance on a boat, there are endless 'wow' things that I have come across. But when I saw a bride getting married to herself, I was sure - this has to be the best thing I have read so far!
While we have often heard and talked about how no one else but only we could make ourselves the happiest. How Sologamy (a marriage by a person to oneself) can be the best thing and how wonderful it can be - and Melissa, the bride is the answer to everyone who is longing for everlasting love and commitment.
Melissa Denton had been married and divorced twice before she decided to spend the rest of life with herself. She got married in a beautiful pink dress, and the reception had a live band, karaoke, Dj and vegan feast.
In Melissa's words - "The idea to marry myself came to me in January last year, when I was at work one day. Three weeks before, on Christmas Eve, I had received a text message from my boyfriend of five and a half years: “I can’t do this anymore, it’s over,” it said. It was devastating and left me in a funk, unable to eat, sleep or smile. He said, “You can get married, darling, but it won’t be to me.” It suddenly struck me that he was right. I could get married - to myself."
