07 I Do, I Do
How do you know if the person to your right, is your Mr. Right? Unless you get him right.
Yesterday I went to a wedding out in Sayville, Long Island. It was a beautiful day. Everything was picture perfect. The ribbons, the flowers, the dresses, the tuxedos, the limos, the parents, the ushers, the bridemaids, the best man, the maid of honor, the unity candles, the champagnes and of course, the bride and groom.
Weddings give you a chance to meet up with the old faces of friends, relatives and guests. Even though I did not hold any important role but showing up, I could feel the cold feet the couple probably had when they were about to wed one another. Wedding day is one of the most unforgettable days in anyone’s life.
A typical wedding question to the singles is whether there is a chance to eventually see themselves in pairs. A typical one for the couples is when the final wedding bell will be. It can be intimidating to attend a wedding celebration.
As for me, weddings are always full of surprises. I would have never thought of seeing grandma do a tango on the dance floor. Neither would I have imagined of doing a hip-hop dance along with one of Frank Sinatra’s fine tunes. I could have never expected to see aunts shake their booties to the cousins. Neither could I have thought of seeing an all-black band in an all-white wedding party.
Weddings are all about meetings. Meeting those familiar faces, meeting new people, meeting the future of uncertainty of photoshooting by a photographer who might catch you dance with your father-in-law and last but not least, meeting the right person. They are fun, amazing and entertaining.
Congratulations to D & K — Here’s to your future!
