Today is the start of Writer Wednesdays, a year-long blog party of writers who will chat through various blogs about the same topic. Our first topic is My Wedding Day Highlight…
My wedding had so many conflicts that writers may be the only people who appreciate the drama. 🙂
From a group of surprise guests to a forty degree rise in temperatures mid December, the fun started. The evening before my wedding, my floral arrangements sat outdoors [easy refrigeration]. Due to the summer temps they had to be scrambled into neighbor’s refrigerators. On the day of the wedding, I arrived early at the church to find the reception area had been used for a Christmas party and someone had forgotten to clean up. A train blocked the wedding party from reaching the church on time and the wedding consultant didn’t show until I was ready to walk down the aisle. I’m sure this was supposed to be that peaceful moment before I say, “I do”. Numerous other wild and crazy things happened that day, which I’m saving for another blog. It was a true testament to patience.
But the special highlight for me, despite the crazies, was marrying the man I loved and escaping the church in my parents’ van, which left them to drive the jazzed up, foamed and shoe-polished car declaring “Just Married” to the world. To this day they remember the horns honking, hand waving and smiles as they drove home. 🙂
What special highlight do you remember about your wedding? Share your comments with me. I’d love to hear your stories.
