A Western Wedding

Wow! We went to a wedding Friday evening that was so much fun, I couldn't believe it. Throw out all you remember about weddings you've ever been to, cause this one was soooo much different. When we walked in, there were bales of straw strategically placed all over the cement floor.

I knew by the invitation that it would be a Western wedding (casual or Western clothes required) but, I will say I was taken aback when I went in the building. The tables either had a cowboy boot or a cornucopia with leaves and other fall items flowing out of them. Very unique idea. Scattered around the centerpiece were peanuts (in their shells) and candy corn that the guests could eat while waiting for the wedding to begin. Yum! (We ate our fair share.)

The bride, Teresa, had on a yellow shirt with gaucho pants, and cowgirl boots and western hat. The groom, Rick, wore a Western shirt, hat, jeans, and cowboy boots. Bridesmaids, best man and groomsmen wore western apparel, jeans, and boots, with a western hat. Even the flower girl and ring bearer had on western clothes and boots. What a hoot! My Son-I-L, Justin, was one of the groomsmen, his sister, Jade, was maid of honor (it was their mother's wedding), and my granddaughter, Mikayla, was the flower girl.

Instead of the standard bride and groom on the top of the cake, there was a couple on horses. Really cool. The food was fantastic and there was a western band until 10 pm, then a DJ until 1 or 2 in the morning.

I could go on and on but you're eyes are probably getting tired from reading already. I found out the night before that my batteries for my camera wouldn't charge. Great, I had wanted to take pics for my blog. Shelley took a lot of pics so maybe she'll send me some I can insert here.

I've been thinking about making my blog into a web page. When I do, there is a directory submission software you can get that will increase traffic to your site and they will submit your site to 40 (or more) web directories, plus it is free. How cool is that?

When I post on my blog, I am creating a written history of events in my life and the life of others, such as the wedding above. This wedding was one I'll always remember. I had more fun there than at any other wedding I've been to.

Have you gone to a wedding that was different than the norm? Let me know about it!
