48. It was actually a really nice wedding, but it was an outdoor venue and it was unseasonably cold and it was raining.
The venue where the wedding was held was outdoors, but it was like…a huge covered patio (like, even enough for the 120-150 guests to have seats under the roof).
Anyway, instead of the seasonal average of like 65-70, we had 45 with wind and rain. Even if my tux with the jacket and all, it was chilly. The bridesmaids were shivering. The rain was blowing in because the patio was covered, but there weren’t walls or anything…
I love the idea of outdoor weddings, but I don’t think I’d do it. I’ve been to four and only once has had the weather be cooperative.
49. This was because of my wife’s family. We wanted to keep the wedding very small. We were very young and some thought we were too young to get married, so this was the reasoning for keeping it small. I had my parents, brother and 4 friends. My wife invited her parents, brother and grandmother. Her grandmother took it upon herself to invite the entire side of my wife’s family. We had over 100 unexpected guests that acted as if they were insulted that they had to be there.
The good news is, my wife kicks ass, going on 15 years.
