After marrying herself, a lady who felt her previous marriage was ‘doomed’ from the beginning has finally had the wedding of her dreams.
Dorothy ‘Dottie’ Fideli, 77, married herself in an unconventional ceremony over the weekend after choosing to pledge herself to… well, herself.
Talk about self-love!
Dorothy stated that she was ‘nervous’ but ‘eager’ for the wedding at her retirement home, O’Bannon Terrace.
Dottie married for the first time in 1965 in a quick courthouse ceremony, but she and her fiancé divorced nine years later.
In retrospect, she believes it was never meant to work out.
She wore a black dress, so she was doomed before she even got started, she said.
Dottie has spent the years afterwards primarily alone, constantly anxious that she was ‘too late’ to experience the wedding of her dreams.
That is, until she learned one day that the love of her life had been with her the whole time. It had to be her!
Dottie stated that she got the notion to marry herself when her neighbors recommended it to her after seeing something similar happen on a talk show.
Now she has a second chance to do something that will make her happy, the mother of three said. She has been with herself for 40 years, she said.
Although she is committing to herself, Dottie is particularly thankful to her daughter Donna, who assisted in organizing the big day.
Donna not only assisted her mother in finding the right clothing for her mother’s big day, but she also decorated the retirement home’s common room, where the event was to take place, and prepared meals for all of Dottie’s guests.
Dottie stated that she told her daughter that this is the best thing that she has ever had, outside of having kids. This is something she has always desired, and she is overjoyed that her daughter gave it to her.
Dressed up in her veil and gown, she said that she never dreamed she’d look this gorgeous. It’s an emotional rollercoaster for her, as that is what she has always desired.
Dottie, who had spent the most of her life caring for her kids and grandkids, was overjoyed to get a day to herself.
She expressed that she is looking forward to her life being all about her now. Now it’s her turn to do whatever she desires.
