Again, yesterday, it rained. Off and on from Friday night until Saturday night. We had a wedding on Saturday with the wedding ceremony outside in our wedding garden. The ceremony was planned for 5pm with the cocktail hour starting at 6pm, the usual stuff.
Well, all morning long we watched the Weather Channel for updates on the storm clouds that hung over our heads. Big, black and puffy...no, not the bride, the clouds. They hung around all day. At 12 noon, a few drizzles, at 1:30pm, a few more.
My sales chick again got the bride on the phone around 2pm and told her again that we recommend the ceremony be held inside so we can guarantee her the ceremony will go on without a hitch.
"I TOLD you I still want to get married outside", she screamed. I guess she got tired of us asking her. What do we know? We only do this all year long for hundreds of Bridzillas like her. "The guests will just have to sit in the rain" was the next foghorn out of her mouth. What's with these nutjobs?
It's more important for her to have her wedding ceremony outside even if it's raining, even if her guests (family & friends) sit in the rain, on wet seats. As Forest Gump said, "Stupid is as stupid does".
To make a long story short, the rain stopped, we got around 5 guys with towels to wipe down all the chairs that we setup around 2:30pm and the ceremony took place.
She had a smirk on her face for the rest of the day. I know she was saying to herself "See, I told you it would be alright". Ok, she was right, it didn't rain during the ceremony.
But wait until she opens the envelopes from her bridemaids that had their heels stuck in the wet grass and one even tripped in the grass. Wait till she hears from her grandmother that had to watch the ceremony from inside 'cause she couldn't go outside with her walker. Wait until she gets the bill from the DJ that she forced to setup his equipment in the damp wedding garden. His extension cords sat on the rainy grass and kept blowing the circuit breaker and finally burnt out one of his speakers.
Another "perfect" wedding day.
