One of the joys of a wedding day is that people tend to say very nice things to you.
My favorite wedding-day compliment was from some friends of Mr T, who accused us of ruining their drive home “because usually we amuse ourselves with an over/under on how long the marriage will last, and what will cause the break-up. But there’s just no point with you two.”
Wicked tradition? Yes. But it amused me, and the conclusion is pretty great if you think about it.
But make that my favorite compliment till now. Because my MOH recently emailed this story about her adorable little boy:
Yesterday J was playing with a toy tractor and I asked him where he was going.
He said, “I’m going to Baltimore to get married.”
To whom? I asked.
“To TARA!!!!!!!! She is a beautiful bride!!!!”
So Mr T is on notice. Just in case the first couple was wrong about our future, he has extra reason to be good to me — in 16-18 years, there will be a handsome young man waiting in the wings!
What are your favorite compliments, wedding-related or as a couple?
