Headline comment: 20 sept

When I saw this headline this morning, I immediately thought of ‘Susan’, the money grabbing bride of my post Headline : Bride cancels her wedding after guests refuse to pay for it

Here we go to a more practical view, though the accompanying photo goes against point 3 of the article!

How to have the perfect small wedding: Six dos and don’ts (link)

Let’s face it though.
When planning a wedding, you are bound to upset at least one person, but at the end of the day, it is Your Day, and your choice as to who is invited to share it.
Family politics, divorced parents, sibling rivalry all raise their head, and I’m sure many of us have an embarrassing aunt or uncle who tends to get loud when they’ve had a few.
My sister has never forgiven us for our quiet registry office ceremony with seven guests followed by a meal in a pub. She’d promised both of her daughters they could be our bridesmaids, so naturally had to live with their disappointment after the event.
She was not one of our invitees by the way, but I don’t think the girls hold it against us, even if they can actually remember as it was so long ago.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Husband’s brother had both his weddings at a registry office with just two witnesses! Yes, his second marraiage is still going strong. We had no parents or siblings at our wedding, that’s another story, but it wasn’t anyone’s fault. Daughter had home made wedding with bouquet crocheted by me and fish and chip supper!
