"Help me!"


I'm enjoying the summer as it flies by.
It seems like each day is different than the day that went before, so "routine" isn't part of my vocabulary lately. That's OK.  Things are rolling along nicely and I'm completely surprised that we're already into the middle of July.  I have some friends who are miserable with the hot weather and being somewhat confined indoors most of the time.  I'm not one of them.  I thrive with the sunshine, even if I'm cloistered indoors with the A/C roaring and dodging mosquitoes when I dart to the mailbox and back.

This weekend Lil' Mama is to be a Bridesmaid in a summer wedding. and Haylee Kate is to be the Flower Girl.  I think being a Flower Girl is a  totally wacko, silly, unreasonable honor, but no less an honor, for a 16 mo. old toddler.  The idea is for her to sit in a wagon and be pulled down the aisle to the front. (Let the record show this is an outside wedding.)  Still, just the thought makes me wonder why anyone thought this was a good idea.  I'll let you know how it goes down.

Thinking about weddings.

I was once at a formal, church wedding and when the young groom turned to face the minister (which meant his back was to the audience) he had a sticky note on the back of his tux that said, "HELP ME!".  Obviously a prank by one of the friends.  *giggle

What's the funniest thing you've ever seen at a wedding?

at any weddings I have been to the little flower girls or little ring bearers usually steal the show, maybe casting a humorous note to a nervous bride and groom, but then again I have saw the flower girl being dragged down the aisle screaming and crying, so thats both sides, hope it all goes well, that was a great prank on the groom with the sticky note,lol!

My wedding last year was so intense and special because my Dad was able to walk me down the aisle a month after he had a double lung transplant. During the ceremony, my husband and I messed up on the communion part and I ended up taking 2 pieces. I stood there chewing and chewing and my husband leaned over and said " Jesus is dry"! I started laughing and then my audience started laughing at me as my shoulders went up and down from laughing. After the wedding, everyone was saying " what happened- why did you crack up so hard"? It was such a great ice breaker and everyone got to laugh after crying so hard watching Dad.

Oh gosh, the wedding stressors. Little kids are SO CUTE but you do have to "manage" them in a wedding. I have seen a good idea where the little one goes down the aisle and then goes to sit with an adult in the audience. That seems to work well. I had my two year old niece as my flower girl and a three-year old boy as my ring bearer (I was young and naive). My ring bearer twirled the pillow in the air with the bow strings during the entire ceremony. Ah, well. I was happy so I didn't mind too much. As far as groom pranks, I attended a wedding where the bride and groom had to kneel, and on the soles of the groom's shoes, HELP was on one and ME on the other in big white letters that showed when he knelt. Hilarious!

This reminds me of our wedding. It was so much fun! No stress, good people, great food and an awesome celebration to mark the beginnings of our life together. <3

The funniest thing? Hmm..not funny, but sad..That my brother felt so guilty, that he had his only sister (that would be me) to "greet" the guests. Now, I ask you..why would someone need to greet the guests when your the sister of the groom? Oh, I found out..no one knew he had a sister and I am the greatest disappointment..which was told to me. Being a greeter is a pointless job, LOL. Just saying..and yes, I was "put out" by doing so. Blessings

Oh! I must tell you that I went to a wedding where they had two little girls, I think they were also just under two years old as the flower girls, both being pulled by a wagon. It was wonderful!!
My son was a ring bearer at my sister's wedding and she insisted that he carry the ring, and it was an OUTSIDE wedding. I was nervous about it, (he was six and quite the active little fellow) but I needn't have worried, he was very serious about his job, and it was a beautiful wedding! xx

Most of the time the little ones in the wedding end up crying and refusing to go down the isle. Hopefully your little sweetie will be OK with all the hoopla! I remember my brother..who was 12yrs old at my wedding, walking around with a straw and sipping from any alcoholic drinks that were unattended..yuck! Then I heard he was in the men's room puking...served him right..and I did laugh!

The groomsmen acted as if they did not have the ring. The groomsmen painted Help ME on the bottom of the grooms shoes and when they knelt to pray that was what the audience saw. I thought I would die on that one. The bell ringer and the announcer came down and the little bell ringer boy felt he was being upstaged by the announcer that the bride was coming and shoved her down....it then knocked the flower girl down....so two little girls were sitting in the middle of aisle crying....and the little bell ringer just stepped over then and assumed his position.

Well I'm just going to say it, unpopular as my opinion may be, but...I am not a big fan of littles in a wedding. I think for the most part they distract from the day. But I'm sure your little grandgirl will be precious! : )

I love warm weather, sunshine, and air conditioning too.
