WEDDINGS

My daughter is invited to a Halloween wedding -- and guests are encouraged to dress up -- seems bizarre to me but what do I know, I have been divorced since Jesus was just a little boy.
I was married by a man from Transylvania, dressed in a black cape (I am SO not kidding!) I dont remember the song we danced our first dance to but maybe you remember yours -- or tell me about interesting weddings you have been to.

Martina - I don't think anyone can touch yours!

I was a bridesmaid in a wedding where the bride had us wearing different pastel colors. I lucked out with pink - believe it. The other colors were lime green, lemon yellow, lavender, and sky blue. Dreadful! The bride was a voice major (me too, that's how I knew her) and she sang a song to her husband during the ceremony. Her husband's name was Ben - the song - Ben - you know, the love song to a rat! I couldn't make it to the rehearsal dinner so I was completely taken back when I heard her sing that. I looked into the audience to see my then fiance's shoulders heaving as he was trying to suppress his laughter. Oh, and to top it off, the pastor who performed the service was the bride's father, who was intent on saving everybody in the room. He actually gave a sermon that went on and on and on.

Which reminds me, did anyone see the video, where the best man is supposed to hand over the rings and accidently knocks the bride into a pond? I will try to find the link

At my cousins wedding, in 1977 -- the groom was about 40 minutes late -- for the last twenty minutes they repeated the song "You light up my life" over and over and over, YUCK!

I went to a wedding once where the groom began visibly sobbing the moment he got to the altar and he sobbed loudly throughout the whole wedding. It would have been sad if it hadn't been so darned funny!

At my brothers wedding -- it was a beautiful fall day, with all the leaves ablaze -- we were all caught up in the moment -- it wasnt until we viewed the video, that anyone noticed the lawn mower that was going on throughout the entire ceremony -- not a word could be heard on tape -- I have no idea why we didnt notice it!

I hope the couple can now laugh at what happened but I imagine at the time the bride thought her beautiful day was ruined.

I eloped after making plans for a BIG church wedding...too many in-laws trying to take over and do the wedding their way! After we got back home after getting married Randy put on some music and we slow danced to two songs...Can't Help Falling In Love by Elvis and The Dance by Garth Brooks...we then went out to eat...not very exciting huh? I did get to go to Graceland though for a belated honeymoon...(we were on our way to a job in Texas)....

While in college a friend of mine, the accompanist for the musical theatre department, got married. The ceremony was in-between the matinee and the evening performance. The cake had Mickey and Minnie on top. The bride had written an arrangement of one of their favorite songs to be payed on piano and flute during the ceremony - a lovely version of "Let's Get Drunk and Screw". Many didn't even recognize it, but those of us who did could not stop laughing!

Another wedding story - when I used to work as a professional mime, my partner and I got hired to mime at a wedding, dressed as a bride and groom. The bride was extremely shy and wanted as little attention on herself as possible. She had us greet guests, wander into the church (before the ceremony started), 'meet' each other at the altar, fall in love, and then run out together down the aisle. At the reception it was our job to encourage more people to dance.

They had a live band with one of those 'wedding singer' band leaders who announce all those traditional wedding activities. When the bridal party first arrived at the reception hall they had to line up outside to be introduced as they made a grand entrance. The band leader does the big-voice announcement, "AAAND NOOOW, for the first time anywhere, Mr. and Mrs. [Whatever their name was]! And in walks me and my mime groom! (The bride made us do it!). The crowd was laughing and clapping and the band leader was FURIOUS! He was shouting, "Stop clapping, that's not them!" What a hoot!

At my wedding (in December 97) the coat rack fell seconds before the wedding because it was so loaded with coats but the wedding got started on time! When I got to the front of the hall and met my husband we walked across the front and pulled a two roses out of my bouquet and gave them to each of our mothers. I wish the whole wedding wasn't a blur because I think my mom lost it when I did that and I cannot remember her reaction.

My best friend was my matron of honor, but she lives 4 hours away and we see each other maybe once a year. So we're standing in the back of the church talking and catching up when my niece, who was about 9 and was helping with the guest book, came running down the hallway yelling, "They're playing the duh-duh-duh music!" Which meant I was about to miss my cue! But we made it on time.

OK - Rising to the Challenge...

About 35 years ago I attended a New Year's Eve reincarnation wedding. The guests were invited for 11:30PM - I guess the idea was that the couple would be married on the stroke of, or something like that. Didn't happen, everything was late, but...

Both the bride and groom had previously been married and each had a little girl. The wedding was held in the social hall of a Unitarian Church. The groom wore a flowing floor length orange gown, and the bride wore a traditional white wedding gown. She looked gorgeous; he looked like he belonged at an airport selling flowers.

At the very beginning, the guests were told to stand around a large white square spotlight that was shining on the floor, and the minister, bride, groom and the kids walked into the spotlight. They then began a good half hour of telling us whom they had been in past lives together. Apparently the happy couple traced their relationship right back to Anthony and Cleopatra. Then, everyone married everyone. The kids took marriage vows as well.

There's more , but you get the idea.

As for wedding songs, my now ex-husband had chosen ours, and I think I should have given the whole thing a bit more thought right then, but I didn't. Going with just the title, the choice sounds appropriate, and it is a song I like, but not really as a wedding song.

The song :Babe by Styx.

The lyrics :Babe, I'm leaving, I must be on my way
The time is drawing near
My train is going, I see it in your eyes
The love, the need, your tears
But I'll be lonely without you
And I'll need your love to see me through
Please believe me, my heart is in your hands
And I'll be missing you.

At the reception following my daughter's wedding a few years ago, I wanted to give a Father-of-the-Bride speech that would be memorable and out of the ordinary. So I wrote it as a rap and performed it to a music-only version of "P.I.M.P." by 50 cent. I received a standing ovation.
