Lane’s wedding was so beautiful this weekend. The reception was a lot of fun, catching up with people in my home town, but overall, like any wedding participation, it was a very tiring weekend. I think Lane achieved the southern charmed reception she was going for. Everyone
seemed to really enjoy themselves.
One of the funniest moments came during the ceremony though. First of all, Lane got a little over anxious and said ‘I do’ before the minister was done with what he had planned to say…that’s ok though, we know she was excited about getting married! The second funny came when the recessional went out in the wrong order. We came in tallest to shortest and were supposed to go out shortest to tallest, but as the maid of honor and best man came to the center to meet, the tallest groomsmen also came to the middle, forcing the tallest bridesmaid to also come to the middle. Well, the trend just continued and the MOH and best man just had to stand in the center of the stage until there was an opportunity for them to walk down and out. It was just one of those awkward moments that you can’t wait to laugh at.
Lane was a beautiful bride though. Our dresses were cute, but I just don’t know how it is possible for those things to always be so uncomfortable. I am very glad that for a long while (I hope at least), I will be in the audience for future weddings instead of on stage. I wouldn’t miss it for the world when it’s my best friend, but in all honesty it is nice to watch a wedding and not have to be conscious of what kind of look you have on your face, whether your dress is straight, or whether or not you are fidgeting. And that’s all I’ll say about that.
