Weddings: An Education

We attended my sister-in-laws wedding last weekend. We had a nice time, it was good to see family, some that we hadn't seen in more than 3 years. The special thing about it? I realized it was the first wedding Chris had ever attended, there hasn't been a wedding in our combined families in 10 years!

The whole thing was fascinating to him, for the rest of us veteran wedding-goers, everything was very traditional, no suprises, so it was nice to see it for the first time through his eyes.

First he got a dance lesson with mom to a slow song, "hand on my hip, other hand up, step side to side" complete with a disapproving look from his cool teen-age brother. By the end of the night , he had the Electric Slide, Macarena and Jitterbug under his belt, he was loving it, the grand finale was YMCA that everybody even the Dads joined in on, which the boys will ever forget.

What a great way to see a wedding in a new light. These days, Hubby and I try to see the ceremony, but skip the reception. We figure we get to see the real important part, shed a few tears and look romantically at one another and the other couples, give an awesome gift and a kiss to bride and groom, and have the rest of our day macarena free.
