Vicky the Wedding Ringer

I **LOVE** weddings! I really, really do. I enjoy watching the ceremony. I enjoy believing in happy endings. I enjoy witnessing all the touching moments throughout the day. I’m a huge fan of the Father Daughter Dance. And then there are my favorite parts– dancing and cake!

Because of my great affection for weddings, I make a great ringer. Don’t have a date? Ask me! I’ll go! I’ve gone to at least four weddings where I didn’t even know the bride *or* groom and still had a fantastic time. Hey, when you don’t know anyone you can be all the more liberated on the dance floor! πŸ˜‰

This past weekend, my lovely sister tapped into my services and took me to her boss’s wedding. I’m happy to report that divorce does not dampen my appreciation for a good wedding. I had a splendid time!

One thing that was impressive and unique about this particular event was all the singing. Songs were performed by guests not only at the ceremony, but throughout the reception as well. It was a great showcase of local talent.

Oh… and there were THREE different cakes.

And broccoli salad!

Can’t get much better than that! πŸ™‚

    Have you seen The Wedding Crashers? I think you might appreciate some of the motivations of the lead characters in that movie. πŸ™‚

    @Dave- I’ve seen the movie…. but I do think my motives are a little more innocent and G-rated than theirs! πŸ˜‰

    Not usually a fan of the big, fancy weddings, but this one does look pretty cool…

    I love a good wedding, too. I have to admit that I’ve never been to a wedding where I didn’t know the bride or groom, but I’ve been to several where I’ve ONLY know the bride or groom, and have had lots of fun.

    On an only slightly related note, I’m sorry to hear about your divorce. No doubt for the best in the long run, but I suspect pretty miserable right now.

    I’m digging that groovy Foxy-Brown hairstyle.

    My daughter who is natural almost -blonde (which I always wanted to be) has groovy Foxy-Brown hair and my daughter with the natural groovy Foxy-Brown hair (though it does have lots of grey) is now bleached blonde. (she matches her mother)

    I think he was referring to the guest who sang at the reception.

    True. But it’s still a cool observation about the Sawyer sisters. : )

    […] my birthday falls on, that day I *will* be taking off work and going for a hike. It is a given. And just like with weddings, I will happily tag along on other people’s birthday hike as […]
