This past weekend my man's cousin got married and it was the perfect excuse to introduce this flirty E-Bay number to the world (or at least to the Notre Dame basilica wedding goers). I love weddings but one of their chosen readings rubbed me the wrong way, "A silent wife is a gift from God." Talk about unromantic patriarchy (although is there really such a thing as romantic patriarchy?) After the reading I simply turned to my man and said "Sorry babe, looks like God misplaced your gift, better luck next time!"
For the reception I changed into my strapless mermaid dress that I've been saving for a special event (even though I worried I would be far too overdressed like when I wore a black tie ensemble to a casual dinner with jean wearers!) We were having so much fun watching the Arabic belly dancers & sword fighters we forgot to take better photos so you'll just have to imagine my aquatic creature esque gown. I've never had so much fun at a wedding (I'd like to thank the open bar for my liveliness...) and was even teaching a 70-something man how to Zumba dance!
