Setting Up for a Wedding

Posted on October 10, 2008 @ 2:57 pm

Somehow, I volunteered to help my sister setup her friend’s wedding hall.  I don’t know what I was thinking, but a promise is a promise and I knew that I had to show up to help.  It was kind of funny that I would have promised in the first place as I didn’t know the girl, but that really didn’t matter.

Everything seemed pretty straight forward and mundane when it came to what we had to setup.  It was as though the bride and groom didn’t really put any thought into making their ceremony unique and I was a little disappointed.

It wasn’t until I was asked to help with the aisle runner that things started to get interesting.  You see, they ordered a custom aisle runner from one of those online stores that sold custom aisle runners and it looked great.  It was elegant and simple, but would make a wonderful souvenir of their special day.

Too bad I won’t be able to see their ceremony – I wasn’t invited.
