Cold Feet! #Giveaway

PERISH IN THE PALM #4
by Kari Lee Townsend
Sunshine Meadows

Cold Feet!

Hi all. Sunny Meadows here. My best friend Joanne Burnham is finally getting married to Divinity's big rugged carpenter, Cole West. Usually when you think of "cold feet" you think of the bride or groom having second thoughts and backing out of the wedding. Never would we have thought it meant a body lying flat on its back with its feet growing colder by the second.

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue ... something dead!

Holy murder is nothing something you want to hear at your wedding, giving until death do us part a whole new meaning. Can Jo and Cole's marriage survive? Read on to find out.

#Chime in with the craziest thing you've ever heard about happening at a wedding for a chance to win a copy of Perish in the Palm. Good luck, folks.

  2. The craziest thing happening at a wedding that I know about was a fistfight breaking out among women trying to grab the bouquet thrown by the bride—fortunately, this was not a wedding I attended!

  4. Haven't really experienced anything too crazy at a wedding, but at one of my cousins weddings, her mom walked her down the aisle, and when the mom tried to give the brides hand to the groom, the sleeve of the brides dress got caught on the moms. Took a few seconds to get them separated. Gave the audience a good laugh. Oh, and at the same wedding, one of the brides sisters (who was also a bridesmaid) wasn't feeling good, and had to step out during the ceremony. She found out later that she was pregnant. :O

  7. The ultimate crazy wedding I attended was while I was in college. Three classmates and I attended another classmate's wedding. The church was beautiful and so was the bride..she was also about 8 months pregnant and it showed. As she walked down the aisle, her heels kept getting stuck in the plastic runner they had lining the aisle. A little kid kept running in circles around the organ, driving us batty. She finally made it to the alter-the three of us were cringing, but hoping things would improve. Then the organist began to sing-she was cracking and off key. It was horrible, especially since we were all theatre majors and 3 of us were singers. There was a huge delay between the ceremony and the reception, so we went to a restaurant to wait. We all needed a drink, but I was still underage (20). I'll never forget Mary's wedding.

  8. A wedding which we ended up paying for entirely at the last minute, otherwise it would have been cancelled. The fault was the father's cover up of his finances since he was hiding the truth behind this celebration. No one ever found out and the wedding went on and was lovely. elliotbencan(at)hotmail(dot)com

  10. An entertaining wedding which was light hearted and small but didn't last very long for the individuals. saubleb(at)gmail(dot)com

  11. A tornado flattened the church where my parents got married just hours after the ceremony. My grandparents said it was an omen that the marriage wouldn't last---but it did, for over 50 years.

  12. I was at a wedding for one of my husband's co-workers. The bride got to the church on time but (for reasons no one would ever talk about) walked down the aisle over 90 minutes later. It was summertime in an old country church with no a/c. Then at the reception one of the guests who had very long and very curly hair (we're talking the 90's and the "big hair" era) backed to close to the candles on the table and her hair caught on fire. Fortunately she was fine - though she had less hair. But between her hair and whatever hair products were on it, the smell was nauseating. I was never so happy to leave and get fresh air.

  13. At my wedding...I was so excited. It was a beautiful day with a cool breeze, the garden in full bloom. No cold feet for either my husband or myself. Second thought? Yes, I wish I'd done more with flowers, lost a little more weight, popped for a videographer,. But, twenty-five years later, I am still excitely in love. kat8762@aol.com

  15. The groom passed out during the service. And the bride and his mother (her almost mother in law) were sobbing and holding each other up.

    1. Having problems typing today! The craziest thing that happened at my wedding was that my 3 brothers all forgot to bring my dad to the church. (He was having some health issues and couldn't drive.) A few minutes before the ceremony was to start, I realized Dad was missing. I had to jump in my car in my wedding dress to go pick him up. Dad thought it was funny, and he wondered if my groom saw me leaving and thought I was a runaway bride!

  19. At our wedding reception, my husband and I had made an agreement to be good to each other and not smush cake into each other's face. However, when the time came, my husband's buddies had egged him on, I proceeded to feed him his piece taking in to consideration his beard. He took his piece and proceeded to push it into my face and up my nose. Needless to say, I was happy but tried to put up a good face as I went to the ladies room to repair what damage had taken place. Luckily I was able to remove any frosting from my dress and out of my nose. The best part is my husband's older cousin came in to check to see if I was okay and proceeded to say she had read him the riot act about what he did. I think she was more upset than I was about it.

  23. I went to a wedding once where the bride wore black. Caused quite a stir. One of the elderly aunts wanted to know what sins she had committed to be wearing black & not white. No one dared venture a guess.

  25. At my wedding we had the grooms boutineer wired into my bouquet. So when I got to the alter, I turned to the maid of honor to hold the bouquet. I removed the flower and pin. But I was shaking so bad the groom backed up because he thought I was going to stick him. Caused a laugh for the congregation. But final safely pinned.

  29. The flowers at my wedding were not there until after the time of the wedding. Claimed they'd tried to deliver them at the time requested, but no one was at the church. I was there waiting for them. My mother hurried to put the flowers on the altar while people were sitting waiting for the wedding to start. Then the person who was supposed to walk me down the aisle was late. So, my husband to be got a coworker and friend of his and my brother (the best man) to "run" me down the aisle. With such a disastrous start, you'd think we were doomed. But, we celebrated our 43rd anniversary in March of this year. choirlady27@hotmail.com

  31. Not really crazy, but funny. At my niece's wedding last month the little flower girl walked up the isle but wouldn't toss any blossoms. Then she started walking up and down the isle, loving the attention.

  32. Just the usual feet getting tangled up in the train and the flower infants (toddlers) kind of free roaming....petals in the strangest places! ;)
