I know some of ya are curious about my trip home, and the wedding of my cousin. I'm a little low on time, so I'll jes' let you know about the wedding.

Total. Clusterfuck.

The bride was late by almost an hour, the pastor did not get a chance to preach. (Well, I guess that part worked out okay.) The receiving line took forever to get through, but that's pretty much normal. However, running late as we were, the reception, located about thirty five minutes away and in the middle of nowhere, started late. Food was served late. To those who got to eat. They ran out. Thank Gott for bier.

By the time the meal was done, it was 9:30. The guests had to leave by 11:00. There was an hour and a half to do all the regular activities and have the dance. No need to say how that went.

My cousin had been pissed, but he could not stop grinning. His bride was the same. You know, that's all that matters.

I was told by my cuz that he couldn't figure out why no one stuck around. Looking at him, I could not bring myself to tell him why. I was not about to ruin their day.

Wedded bliss... in the end, that's all that mattered. Congratulations, and the best of luck to both of them.

My SIL was an hour late for her wedding. She said she was 'entitled' as it was 'the Bride's Day'. Wha? I didn't say anything. I was a bridesmaid and just followed instructions.

My wedding started on time... to the second. Then again, there aren't many options when your Dad is career military... everything runs on time!

I keep tryin' to tell people it's all about the REASON for the event. The ceremony? Huh. As long as it' accomplished that's all that matters. The party? Nice but nothing ever runs perfectly. In the end, the only thing that matters is the REASON for the day.

But damn, it is a bitch when you leave hungry - I'm just sayin'.......

The Bride was an hour late for her own wedding?

That's just wrong.

We had no choice, it had to start on time.

Started at 2:30
Ended at 3:30 (Full Catholic ceramony, sucked)
Saturday Mass started at 4:30, we had to be out by 4pm so we had 1/2 hour to get pictures.

Running out of food sucked. I would demand compensation because they are suppose to have more food then guests.
