Disney Wedding

Monday, October 4, 2010

A couple weekends ago I went to a wedding. The wedding was at 3:00 in the afternoon (the hottest part of the day!) in Mississippi. I drove by a bank around noon and the temperature was 98F. I'm sure it got even hotter that day.

My first glimpse into this wedding was the invitation. The invitations definitely set the tone for the wedding. The invitations had an embossed Beauty and the Beast on the cover.

As I already mentioned, the ceremony was outside. In the heat. There were only 100 chairs underneath a covered pavilion, and over 150 were expected to attend the wedding. I got there early to get a seat. After sitting and melting for about 30 minutes, the ushers announced that the wedding would start an hour late because the groom forgot the rings.

Something always seems to go wrong at wedding, and delaying the wedding turned out to be a blessing. The wedding location was in the middle of nowhere, and many people got lost and showed up well past 3:00 (the original start time).

The wedding theme was Disney and the colors were brown and pink. I think that the dresses looked great on the bridesmaid, but hot pink is not a good look for men.

The reception was indoors (yay for air conditioning). The tables had Disney centerpieces, and there were large Disney statues scattered throughout the room.

Liz (left) got married 6 months ago, and I was a bridesmaid in her wedding. Kim (center) was also a bridesmaid.

My ex-boyfriend, Shawn, was one of the groomsmen.

The bride and groom's first dance was to Aladdin's A Whole New World.

The cake had Mickey and Minnie toppers.

The bride's engagement ring is a diamond solitaire, and the groom custom designed the wedding band. The wedding band had two diamonds with a little space in between. When you put the rings together, they formed Mickey's head.

The bride and groom went to Disney World on their honeymoon.
