The wedding that we hosted at our home went over pretty well. There were only a few minor glitches to note:
A major rain storm caused flash flooding in the Ham during the night before the rehearsal. The ground was still a bit soggy, but the sun came out by lunch time and the heat skyrocketed to a toasty 95 degrees for the next 2 days.
Also, the photographer obviously did not pay attention to the weather reports because she showed up two hours late on wedding day in black knit leggings and long sleeved black shirt. Needless to say she requested a lot of bottled water while she ran around trying to make up for the time she lost.
Apparently the Bride had an inordinate amount of issues with the bridal store that she chose. Her gown was ordered too short so when it arrived a few days before the wedding, it had to be “lengthened” with some ruffles at the hem and on the day of the wedding she was testing the bustle and discovered they had never even added the eye hook for it. Thankfully, the seamstress immediately came to the house and repaired the issue within minutes of walking down the aisle!
The two year old ring bearer was clocked in the mouth by his own Daddy (totally by accident, so he says) and ended up with a big ol’ fat lip for all of the wedding photos! Strawberry ice cream soothed the tears though.
A groomsmen forgot that white sweat socks do not look good with black dress shoes. Fortunately, Hubby had several pair of dress socks in his drawer. (No he does not want them returned, thanks anyway.)
And it seems the groom’s mother took this wedding opportunity to gather all of her friends and family from all over the country then wanted ALL of them in ALL of the photos. The Bride nearly had a meltdown in the direct sunlight (as she is a very fair skinned red head) while standing for picture after picture after picture…
It has taken us 3 days to clean up afterwards, but it was lots of fun. I guarantee though that we will not be going into the wedding planning business anytime soon.
Congratulations to the beautiful couple and enjoy Cabo San Lucas! You’ve earned it!
