A wedding is a myriad of things. And when it comes to blogging, I think it’s fair to say that most of us fit our wedding recaps into neat segments that cover common “highlights” of typical weddings. It gives blogging structure and readers familiarity. However, not everything fits neatly into the usual categories.
Again, not all of us have been to many weddings prior to our own. I had been to a total of four wedding prior to my own, including the one where I was a flower girl. So I always enjoyed the candid posts on Weddingbee about “what really happens.” Therefore, I’m devoting this post to the little things that happened at our reception.
Guests visit other tables
Guests (Pastor W) peruse the photo gallery
My dad shares a laugh with Pastor W while looking at his wedding photo
The bride’s bustle needs to be re-hooked (thanks, mom!)
Or, the bride ditches her high heels (seen on the floor next to MOH R)
Friends fill out quilt squares
Guests (Pastor W) visit with the newlyweds
In rare cases, the bustle might need some repairs.
Mr. Bracelet stepped on it after cutting the cake (thanks, MIL!)
Towards the end of the night, families congregate at one table
Or, new friends are made (my uncle and Mr. B’s uncle in the background)
