Or is it dinner, drinks and screeches?
Anyways, the happy couple and bridal party comes in –their entrance also carefully choreographed to a song, can’t remember which one, probably Bruno mars…yeah, I’ll leave that one there– and take their seats.
I’d also have to say that it felt early on like the wedding was not a wedding to unite the happy couple, but rather the bride’s wedding, birthday, Christmas and what the heck, maybe even her graduation rolled into one event. Anyways! The drinks start and it’s only the finest for this young couple- plastic cups for every drink, and served by the teenager out of the Simpsons.
Hey, booze is booze though. If you ask nicely, you get wine on your table.
Buffet- snooze. Pierogies for all.
Now for the speeches. Endless, bottomless (like I wish my drinks were!), forever, speeches.
It felt like everyone and their dog got up there to say something (mostly about the bride, because BRIDE IS PRINCESS).
Some speeches were boring, some funny, and some very embarrassing. Note to all: bodily fluids jokes and or tales are NOT acceptable at mine, yours, or anyone’s wedding. At all.
Even if the bride or groom wants a joke or two, they don’t want to be embarrassed at their own wedding.
Other people at the wedding? Well, roast away!
Speaking of which…the Emcee at the wedding was related to the bride (aunt or something?) AND she vaguely knew my SO.
How did she know my SO? Well, she tried to take him home from a bar some months before he and I met. This same MC gave a very long- drawn out speech about the bride, blah blah and then about herself: HOW HAPPILY MARRIED SHE IS LOOK AT HER BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER SO HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY.
She apparently was also heard whispering comments about how ‘cute’ my SO looked.
Yeah, on MY arm, cougar-town!
The guests were the best part of this wedding though, and you’ll never believe…
