It's a nice day for a white wedding...
(Sorry, couldn't help myself, haha!)
So this is is the wedding weekend. My wonderful cousin S is marrying a beautiful girl with a stunning voice. You really should hear O sing. I'm sure I will have tons of pictures to share with y'all next week, but, as this is Caffeinated Randomness, I decided to share memories of some of the fun weddings I've attended...
Winner of the Wedding Nazi Coordinator
Though I should win this one (haha), I'm going to give it to someone else. I was the first bridesmaid scheduled to walk out for Misti's wedding, but unfortunately Misti's wedding coordinator, who was VERY stressed out, thought I was supposed to walk out at the slideshow. I knew better, but that did not stop her from (I kid you not) shoving me out into the aisle. I walked about two steps, turned around and said, "This isn't right. This is sooo not right" as the other bridesmaids started arguing with the coordinator, telling her she was wrong as I walked back in the foyer. Thankfully no one saw this little episode.
Shortest Wedding Award
The shortest wedding I ever went to was my oldest female cousin's wedding, which was 16 minutes. And the world rejoiced.
Best Wedding Food
Our friends J and H take the cake for this one. Their wedding was catered by a wonderful place who made the best fried fish, meat pies, etc. Wow, my stomach seriously just growled now.
Funniest Wedding Moment
This was at Jacob (my cousin) wedding, when Jacob snapped his fingers at the best man for the ring, then the best man turned and snapped his fingers at the next groomsmen, and so on and so on until the last groomsmen, who snapped his fingers at no one, looked confused, and then patted his coat pockets until he found the ring. The ring then got passed from groomsmen to groomsmen until it got to Jacob. Really cute.
Best Bouquet Toss
All right, our wedding has to win on this one because our friend, an awesome former college softball star and current collegiate softball coach, jumped three feet in the air to catch my bouquet. The picture is incredible with her airborne like that. Wish I could find it, though...
Best Reception Decorations
I'm going with my best friend from elementary school here. The reception was absolutely breathtaking, very romantic with dimmed lights, a gazebo-like thing in the middle of the room, and...it was just gorgeous.
Best Music to Walk Out
This goes to a high school/family friend, who walked out to "Son of a Preacher." Very appropriate and hilarious, as the groom truly was the son of a preacher.
Most Fun and Casual Wedding
No surprises here, Rindy wins. She and her husband decided to elope one day and got married with a Justice of the Peace in a small park. It was so random and spontaneous and so much fun.
And y'all know I couldn't end this without sharing a picture from our own wedding. And, unfortunately, since I'm having trouble accessing them, this one is of my sweet hubby, left, and his groomsman, who caught the garter (and proposed to his girlfriend on our honeymoon! They're expecting their first child any day now!).
