Vicky the Groomsman

September 2, 2007 at 2:55 pm 9 comments

Earlier this week, I received a surprise call from Stacy.  I assumed the purpose of his call had something to do with the upcoming ECU vs. VT football game, but he had other things in store.  After a introduction and a joke (which I didn’t get at first) he said, “So anyway, would you like to be a groomsman at my wedding?”

Hell yeah!  I’m all over that shit!

So come November 10th, I’ll get to escort one of the lovely bridesmaids down the aisle.  I suspect I’ll earn a pass to the rehearsal dinner which means I’ll get more face time with Stacy’s parents.  And being up in the thick of it, I’ll get one of the best views of the vows there is!  Add all those to the preexisting list of items I love about weddings (topped by “cake” and “dancing”), this promises to be one of the best weddings ever!  I’ve very excited about participating. 

How excited?  In researching what I was getting into, I ran across a online forum where a bride was fretting about her fiance’s selection of a woman as a groomsman.  One of her worries was:

Where would they get ready?

It is a question I never would have considered.  But I’ll tell you what.  I would pretty much change anywhere to fulfill my duties at this wedding.  With the bridemaids.  With the groomsmen.  My car.  The raunchiest of portapotties.  It doesn’t matter– whatever it takes!  🙂

    Your’s was the only wedding I’ve been a part of the party. And I got to dodge the toast-giving bullet.

    Yeah, besides your wedding, I haven’t had any high profile gigs. I was Guest Book girl at Jodi’s wedding. And, I did help with the Guest Book at Christina’s U.S. Wedding Reception. Yeah, I think that’s about it.

    Vicky, I don’t think I’ve EVER heard you say “Hell yeah! I’m all over that shit!”, hehehehehe.

    But the speech! Are you ready for the speech? (Or will you escape having to give one?).

    Kipp is the best man, isn’t he the one who’s going to have to give the speech?

    Damn, I need to get more Clint-like with the RSS so I don’t miss posts like this. You rock, Vicky — thanks for being so excited about my wedding! 😀 I can’t wait!

    Stacy, I’m always willing to export my reading list for others to import. You’d have to click unsubscribe (2 clicks) for the feeds you weren’t interested in, but that would probably be less overall work.
