While I was getting ready, our impromptu flower girl, was standing in the back with me and it was VERY obvious how nervous/anxious I was. She very seriously said "Crystal, are you nervous?" I of course said "Yes, very much so" and her response was "Oh, I've done this before. Don't worry, it will be okay." She was TOO cute
-When we were feeding each other the cake, I accidentally bit DH's thumb - we have some pretty hilarious pictures from that moment that I will have to share some time.
-I hadn't eaten at all the day of the wedding so by the time it was over and we were heading out to Hot Springs we both realized we were completely starving. Guess where we had dinner on our wedding night? Burger King. Yep, we're klassy like that. We laughed for hours over that one. DH did the whole redneck thing while we were in the drive-thru "Yeah, lets super-size it for the little lady, it's our weddin' day".
-I had this bright idea of buying teal colored "wedding panties" to match my shoes. Unfortunately, I completely disregarded the fact that my dress was WHITE. Right as I was about to walk out of the house, Robbin said "Oh my...when you bend over I can totally see the color of your panties!" Too late by then!
During the ceremony after the exhange of rings the minister performing our ceremony puts a hand on Chris's shoulder and just takes a deep breath and says "Few words of advice for you my friend.."Yes Dear" - learn those words fast and your life will be much easier" - We all cracked up laughing and it just really was funny.
Not sure if this part is "funny" - but after the reception dinner and everyone parted ways several of us went to a local casino - since we were married in Tahoe and Reno was just over the border - I spent the next hours in my wedding dress and it was amazing and I even got carded at the craps table because they thought I was underage..I am 32 so it made my night!
I married my first cousin 25 years ago.
We had lived in the same town and in the same street for 18 years. Though I had played with him as a kid, the minute I turned 14, I was indirectly informed that I was to marry him one fine day. From that day onwards, I felt shy to see him face to face. I would stay in the kitchen when he visited our house but my heart would feel his presence in the next room.
Then we were married. On my first night I was scared that he would ask me why I had kept away from him. As I sat shivering in my decorated bed, he entered the room and sat beside me. I was wondering what his first words would be.
He poor man was also scared of what his first move should be. So he asked, “What is your name?”
We still laugh over that night. He had known me from when I was a new born, been beside me when I was named, played with me as a child, had admired my name next to his, on the wedding card…. And he had to ask me THAT on the day he got me alone!!
Well, the reason is not very hard to decipher. My husband is a doctor. When he is alone with a patient his first question would be, “What is you name?”
Luckily he did not ask me the customary second question which he normally asks a patient, which would have been,
“What is your problem?”
