wedding bell blues
Atlanta, home of the southern wedding... 11 bridesmaids and not so many groomsmen. I don't think the young men are as enthusiastic about renting the tux, paying for travel, doing the formal and semi-formal events, and following the strict wedding protocol.
My nephew Craig is getting married today at the First Presbyterian Church, which is a lovely dark red sandstone structure in downtown Atlanta next to the High Museum.
These are two of my nieces, Kate and Sally, with Sally's boyfriend Jonathan. Of course they are bridesmaids. Talking with my brother Joe (father of the groom) and Jonathan about the number of bridesmaids - Joe said "You know how girls are about bridesmaids..." Ummmm, I'm a girl and I don't get it.
