Patricia is a bridesmaid in friend Gena’s Wedding, 1975

In 1975, I was in my friend Gena’s wedding, serving as one of thirteen bridesmaids paired with thirteen groomsmen. We girls were all decked out in poufy mauve and green flowered dresses and big floppy hats. You gotta love the seventies! I’ll never forget the fashion statement we made that day!

Amanda recalled a moment in her garden wedding where the flower girl got chased by a bee in the middle of the ceremony. Thankfully, the bee moved on quickly, after a few fearful squeals from Amanda’s niece.

A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.

Think of a wedding you have either been a part of or attended. This wedding might have been years ago or last weekend.

•    Whose wedding was it?

•    When and where did it take place? Describe the setting.

•    Were you part of the ceremony or a guest?

•    What made this wedding so memorable?

•    Were there any unique elements of this particular wedding?

Include other details such as décor, attire, food, music, or guests. Weave in those specifics as well.
