My cousin’s wedding was three hours late! We thought the groom was missing, but he actually overdid at his bachelor party and woke up really late.

I went to a wedding with a friend just because he didn’t want to go alone. When I got there, the wedding turned out to be a celebrity athlete’s wedding AND my current BOYFRIEND was in the bridal party!! He didn’t even tell me he was in town! After looking like he saw a ghost while walking down the aisle (giggle), we talked at the reception and he said he was told that he couldn’t say anything because the wedding was hush-hush. Yeah…I still don’t believe him, but we’re still dating so that’s a little white lie that he got away with :)

I think the couple got divorced though.

Jumping the Broom

The first and 2nd to last wedding I ever went to…… I caught the boquet, and I’m still not married, let alone in a relationship.
That’s a ‘mancation’ for ya; and I’m proud of it. ;-) Until God brings me my husband that is. ;-)

Jumping The Broom

My own! I had hired coach buses to take out of town guests and close family members on my side from the hotel to the church and back to the hotel/reception site. My side of the family (including my mother, father, grandmothers etc) all left before the pictures were taken in the church (despite instructions provide at the rehearsal and itineraries etc)- so only pictures with the groom family were taken - it was a probably an omen considering he decided after 10 mos he didn’t want to be married anymore -
