Everyone was dressed normally, short bridesmaids gowns, long wedding gown, groom in a tux, groomsmen in nice suits... and tennis shoes of their choice. Not all matching, or even close. When pronounced man and wife, the bride and groom straight up made out in front of everyone.. ick. Aside from all of that, the ceremony and reception were gorgeous. Just a little weird.

We went to a wedding a few weekends ago, and the Priest gave the homily, talking about the wedding at which Jesus turned wine into water. He then went on to talk about how awful it would be to attend a wedding where there was no wine, and that of course Jesus couldn't let the honored guests at a wedding drink water.

And this went on for a few minutes while those of us in the know got increasingly more amused/uncomfortable because we knew that the bride wasn't having alcohol at the reception.

I don't actually remember the point of the homily, but I was glad that the Priest didn't make the reception.

Cute couple, sweet luncheon. But we all felt bad that her officiant hadn't been clued in.

I went to a wedding a few years ago that must have had a Charles Dickens theme -- the best man was dressed like a chimney sweep. No need to re-read that...yes, I said chimney sweep. Apparently there is an old English legend that it is good luck to have a chimney sweep at a wedding, and this bride took it seriously. As for the best man, all I can say is that he was one extraordinary friend.

Yes, that would be the one.

Good God! Why would anyone want to play Calle Ocho as their recessional? Did they at least dance?

Yes because the water back then was too dirty to drink. That's why the iced chai lattes were winey.

Yup. One could argue that the Latter Day Saints ban on Alcohol (they take sacrament with bread and water) was only a good idea because they only significantly existed in *very* rural areas with clean water supply up until the beginning of the 20th century.

Indeed he did. Clearly, I didn't pay enough attention to the homily, or my proofreading.

Still, it was aaawkward.

Maybe they met in a Zumba class.

Did this make anyone else think of Mary Poppins? "Good luck will rub off, when I shakes hands with you..."

When I was 10, I was the ring-bearer for a couple in my church. Everything about the ceremony was pretty by-the-numbers except for one thing: When the rear doors to the sanctuary opened, instead of striding down the aisle to "Here Comes the Bride," the bride launched into Elvis's "Hawaiian Wedding Song" in a quavery, slightly off-key vibrato (imagine a 30-something woman singing like Norma Zimmer, the "Champagne Lady" from The Lawrence Welk Show). The groom looked on in what can only be described as horror, as if a horse had just kicked him in the head.

I think they stayed together for, like, four months.
