No Such Thing as a Small Wedding...

Reagan Summerside here and I’ve got a huge problem. I always seem to have huge problems. Usually it’s those pesky dead bodies that I keep running into. I got a theory on why this happens, it’s has to due with my ex, Hollis-the-horrible. The way I see it, the fates took one lifeless piece of crud out of my life and are not bound and determined to fill it with a bunch more!

But that’s not my biggest problem...if you can believe it. I’m getting married. Now I ask you have you ever planned a wedding? If so you know exactly what I mean. I thought a simple wedding would be nice. This is my second wedding so big just isn’t in good taste. But again the fates have intervened and I now find myself knee-deep in big wedding plans.

Have the wedding you want is what you are probably thinking but there’s a glitch. My good friend Mercedes has never been in a wedding and wants to be a bridesmaid and I sort of said okay since she helped me hide a body. I figured it was the least I can do.


And then there’s the local police detective who is also a good friend but was on the verge of finding the dead body I was hiding so I promised her she could be in the wedding to distract her.

And then there is my much loved fiancée, Walker Boone. How could I tell him that our simple wedding was no longer simple? My dear Auntie KiKi said to tell him that we were having pot roast at the reception. Men will go along with anything for the promise of pot roast. And you know what, KiKi was right.

So now I’m having bridesmaids in fuchsia (so not my color choice) and pot roast at the reception. I can’t wait to see what else happens in Lethal in Old Lace that affects my
wedding? What will it be? Big Joey as the one who marries us so his feeling s aren’t hurt? The reception at the Cakery Bakery because that’s where all my friends hang out? Bruce Willis...the other canine Bruce Willis and my BFF...as the ring bearer so his feeling don’t get hurt?


What’s the craziest thing you ever saw at a wedding?

  5. This isn't "crazy" but more poorly planned. Outdoor wedding, bride escorted to altar by Father. Entry music was provided by a guest playing an electric piano. The justice of the peace did the vows and after pronouncing them married, the couple stood there. They looked around and didn't know what to do. Justice of peace told them go back up the aisle but there was no exit music. First time I've ever been to a wedding, where the Mothers of the Bride and Groom, just came in from the sides and sat down and were not escorted to their places. Another outdoor wedding, the bride had a large train on her dress which kept snagging on the long grass at the park, where the wedding was held. Her Mother finally had to carry the train up the aisle.

  6. I once attended a wedding in a VERY small chapel, with VERY large members of a large wedding party. There wasn't much room for them, let alone the guests!

  7. Went to a wedding where the bridesmaids wore strapless dresses. Every time the minister said 'Let us pray", the guests bowed their heads and simultaneously the bridesmaids hitched up their dresses.
