Too Busy To Blog

by Mary O'Bryan on May 14, 2013

NEVER too busy to blog! The DAY is here. The dress needs to be taken to the venue. I am worried about that transport so I will do it myself. Ice (for the drinks) and gas (for the six wheeler) ┬áneeds to be taken to the ranch. Remember, Bride is not having a Bridesmaid’s luncheon but a skeet shoot and BBQ. Oh, yeah, and the crystal champagne glasses, plastic cake topper, silver cake knife, my mother’s lace tablecloth from her wedding reception, Blue Bell Ice Cream paper hats; all need to be taken to the venue at 8:30 am. I’m sure I have forgotten something.

A flawless rehearsal yesterday except that someone had taken the car keys of the Groom and he couldn’t get there till they were returned. Our town is so small that it only took 5 minutes to take him the keys. The Officiant reminded us that no wedding has ever been flawless. That what goes wrong will be the thing we will laugh about in the years ahead. The Wedding Planner reminded us to focus on the couple…well, she really said to focus on the Bride! The 3 year old flower girl (my first grandchild) made everyone laugh as she came down the aisle, her tutu slipping way below the waist, tossing petals, and saying “Hook em Horns” at the end of it all. My daughter -in-law bribed her with unlimited Blue Bell Ice Cream at the reception if she could make Mamalu (me) laugh by saying it. It worked!

It is too early to start cryng now. This is being typed at 3:03am. I am crying. It has been a wonderful life. I have so much to be thankful for. Father of the Bride is my best friend and I can truly see that Bride and Groom have what it takes to achieve that everlasting love. They come from STRONG families and that was demonstrated and toasted about at the rehearsal dinner. Thank you for coming along with me on this journey.
