After the bouquet and garter were appropriately tossed and more dancing and debauchery were had, the night began to wind down. Certain groomsmen also went missing towards the end of the evening… … read more
Admittedly I have rather questionable taste in television programming. My DVR is chock full of every installment of the Housewives series, I watched the hell out of RuPaul’s Drag U, I may or may not have a countdown clock set for the next season of the Rachel Zoe Project, and I’m far too excited about Ice Loves Coco.
However, despite all of this I never got into the Bachelor/Bachelorette…until this season. And the kicker? Mr. L happily watches along side of me. So why the sudden interest in one of televisions most riveting and quality programs? Is it because of Ashley’s amazing fashion sense? Has my little black heart finally warmed to the idea that one can find true love on national television? Um, no. It’s all because of this guy:
After the bouquet toss we kept the tradition train rolling and geared up for the dreaded garter toss. I say dreaded as during the planning this was one of those rituals that I really could have done without. I mean, how bizarre is it to have your new husband all up in your business in front of your grandparents?! Not exactly demure. That said, Mr. L is all about rites of passage such as this and since I put the big ‘ol kibosh on the money dance, I figured I’d let him have this one :).
I honestly have no idea what song played while we went about our garter retrieving and throwing business. I doubt anyone else who was present does either…
We recently held a low-key couple’s shower for our dear friends M and J who will wed this coming weekend. Our lovely friend A co-hosted with us and helped me plan and execute our Fiesta themed stock the bar party. This was actually the first shower I’ve ever planned and thrown (outside of assisting with my very own bridal tea) and I was pleased as (sangria) punch that it came together so smoothly.
A created an adorable Evite to send to all of the guests. We chose to go this route to keep the vibe casual yet festive and I loved the way it turned out: … read more
The bouquet toss. Hmmm. I really thought about this one and if we would be partaking in the action. On the one hand it’s a bit dated and somewhat awkward but it’s also uber-traditional and kinda sweet.
Ultimately we went for it and the equally traditional and awkward garter toss (up next…). We played these fun games after the band’s first set. Since the band was taking a break, GM Seth stepped up and emceed the affair.
Hello! Once upon a time I was a wedding blogger called Mrs. Lemonade. I told the story of a lovely April afternoon that occurred not-so long ago. If you’ll kindly indulge me I’d like to finish telling my tale…
Ah, the first dance. This little wedding rite of passage gave me a decent amount of anxiety leading up to W day. The mister and I chose not to take any sort of dance lessons and not once did we practice our middle school sway. What can I say, we’re naturals.
