My brother lives in Vancouver Canada and just happened to get married the weekend of Thanksgiving. I never had a wedding on Thanksgiving weekend and I think it was a pretty crazy idea because the times already so busy and life is already so crazy. Everything turned out great but there are a few things that happened that ended up costing my brother so I wanted to share a few of the moments with you.
Soon as the big day came my brother had everything set up as he should have. Little did he know the plans would change pretty quickly. First off, the wedding limo was on time as they always are and we weren’t ready to head to the church for the ceremony. So what ended up happening is that we were getting charged for hours that we weren’t even using this service. If your family is always late it may be a good idea to plan for the limo to come a little bit late as well!
Something really funny that happened was that one of the groomsman never try on the new shirt she couldn’t fit into it when it came time for the wedding. Can you believe that? For those of you that don’t already know, the Groomsman is the man standing up front the entire wedding ceremony so everyone saw this guy! This groomsman was unbuttoned and looked like a slob all because of a little mix up! It’s probably a good idea to try out all your clothes before you get to a wedding, just in case something like this happens.
The wedding was beautiful as usual and everything went on great until we got to the ceremony and the cake wasn’t there. The damn decorator hadn’t brought the cake from the factory so late for her which was a big mix up. My brother thought he had everything planned out but it would’ve been a good idea to call the cake decorator had a time because it wouldn’t have caused all this headache.
Finally, the food that was served was a little bit less than quality. Overall it was a decent dinner but somethings or not as good as the others. My brother tested the main entree but he never tried appetizers or anything else so that’s my last suggestion for anyone that’s getting married. Be sure that you actually try all the entrées and food that you put in front of your guests.
I think the leading was a great time and everyone have fun, but there were a few things that could’ve been a little bit better. In the end everyone is going to have a great memory of the day and that’s all that really matters. All the other issues like the groomsman and his T-shirt are just going to be cool stories to tell your kids!
