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 mywedding? 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?
