Practice makes Perfect

Last night there was an impromptu rehearsal before the rehearsal. The Bride, 2 of her bridesmaids, her mother and an attendant descended upon the household to test music, sound and timing. The bride has chosen a Led Zeppelin song to walk down the aisle to. Thankfully, the song lasts more than 4 minutes which is the minimum amount of time needed to get all 17 people down the aisle. Hubby was manning the stop watch, myself and the other 4 women pretended to be 10 maids and ushers plus 2 flower girls and 1 ring bearer. It was kinda funny to watch us elegantly prance down the aisle then run like a bat outta hell to get back to the end of the line to pretend to be yet another person walking down the aisle. Then of course, the Bride had to make her entrance as we all ooooh’d and aaaaahhhhh’d.

Afterwards, most of us sat on the deck and drank a beer while buttoning up last minute details. Seems the Bride forgot to plan the “throwing of the rice” part. She actually was just going to skip it all together until Hubby and I convinced her to use those congratulatory “poppers” from the party store. We convinced her it would make a great photo op. (The Bride is all about great photo ops). Then we reminded the gals that while at the party store they needed to collect items to decorate the “getaway car”, (seems that idea never crossed their minds either).

Sheesh! Come on ladies! Have you never been to a wedding?

Finally, and I am saving the best part for last… we discussed the speeches and who gives them at the rehearsal dinner and the wedding reception. They decided to have Father of the Groom and Maid of Honor give their speeches at the dinner, then…wait for it…they decided to have Sari and her BFF Ria (2 of the 8 bridesmaids) give a co-speech at the reception! If anyone knows Sari, they know the girl will bury herself alive before speaking in public! I nearly fell off my chair in laughter! (She cursed me via text message later that night.)
