Don’t they look fabulous in the box? Don’t they? In reality, they made look like a wooden spoon doll someone had glued two slugs on to. And every time I blinked, I thought a crow was coming for me. Unforgettable indeed.
So the nice people at Avon asked some of you for your most unforgettable moments, and I picked me top five. Sue said:
"I went to a very posh wedding and I was there as a plus one with a male friend, so I didn’t know either the bride or the groom. We were all sitting there in a cathedral in our posh hats waiting and waiting. Half an hour after the service should have started the bride’s father came running up the aisle, whispered to the vicar and then they, the groom and the best man were ushered into the vestry. Five minutes later the vicar came out and announced that the bride had been in the car outside with her Dad, but decided she didn’t want to get married, but we should all go on to the reception. The meal was served, but nobody stayed very long and none of what would have been the top table was there." I’m totally thinking of this. Poor Tag.
Kiki, meanwhile, attending a wedding where “their dogs were the bridesmaids, all done up in ribbons”. I would have paid to attend that.
Charlotte reported that, at her ex-partner’s wedding, "just as the vicar said ‘does anybody know of any reason why these two should not marry speak now’, my eldest son (then three) chirped up, ‘Why is my dad over there?’" Surely one of the best reasons to have kids in the first place is to train them to do this kind of stuff?
Laura told us about her own wedding, which, while of course not hilarious at the time, would have me doubled over if it was in a film. I’m a sucker for that stuff. "Right after signing the marriage license, my husband had an allergic reaction to one of the appetizers (which we had tasted prior to the wedding). His throat began to close, and he was rushed to the hospital by EMS! Unfortunately, we didn’t get to enjoy our wedding, but our guests did which made us happy!" She reassures us that they did, at least, get to go on their honeymoon.
And finally Colleen, who was working at one wedding as a waitress. "The bride asked for red wine which I spilt onto the lap of her dress. I burnt up and thought I was on the verge of crying as everyone stopped and glared, but she just smiled and said ‘Seriously, its not an issue,’ then looked at her husband and said ‘I’m not planning on wearing this again,’ and he welled up and said ‘This is why I love you’." I’M NOT CRYING I HAVE SOMETHING IN MY EYE.
(Probably one of those fake eyelashes.)
