“I would like to wear my mother’s green wedding dress,” said Annie Leprechaun. “I know she would have wanted that.”
“Green,” said Jacob, Annie’s fiancée. “I know we are getting married on St. Patrick’s Day but I wanted our wedding to be traditional.”
“If you feel that strongly about it,” said Annie. “Then, I will wear a white one.”
“Good,” said Jacob. “Thank you.”
Annie was at home trying to find the perfect white wedding dress. She was looking through a stack of bridal magazines. Her father, Grand Old Leprechaun, came into the kitchen and glanced over Annie’s shoulder.
“You aren’t going to wear your mother’s green wedding dress?” asked Grand Old Leprechaun.
“Jacob wants me to wear a white wedding dress,” said Annie.” He wants a traditional wedding.”
“What about what you want?” asked Grand Old Leprechaun. “Your wedding day is your day.”
“I know,” said Annie. “But, I want Jacob to enjoy it too.”
Grand Old Leprechaun wanted his daughter to have the best wedding day ever. He went to speak with Jacob.
“I just want my daughter to be happy,” said Grand Old Leprechaun. “I know she had her heart set on wearing her mother’s green wedding dress. She won’t tell you herself but she will do anything to please you.”
Jacob thought long and hard about what Grand Old Leprechaun said to him. He felt guilty about asking her to change her dress. He asked Grand Old Leprechaun if he would switch dresses on the morning of the wedding as a surprise to Annie.
On the morning of the wedding, Grand Old Leprechaun switched the wedding dresses while Annie was getting her hair done.
“What is going on?” asked Annie. “Why is the green dress here? Jacob wanted me to wear a white wedding dress.”
“Jacob changed his mind,” said Grand Old Leprechaun, smiling. “He agrees that you should wear your Mother’s green wedding dress.”
“He wants this day to be the best day of my life,” said Annie, smiling.
“Absolutely,” said Grand Old Leprechaun.
Annie put her mother’s green wedding dress on and she looked radiant.
“You look beautiful,” said Grand Old Leprechaun, whispering in her ear as he walked Annie down the aisle.
“Thank you,” smiled Annie, happily.
“I must say your mother would be very proud of you,” said Grand Old Leprechaun.
