I'm Feeling: snarky
*whispers* But what if it wasn't?
Okay, so technically, it was happy. Except for the lack of smiles during the ceremony.
But you know how you watch someone and you see that they want to smile but won't? That's what this was like. Stephanie and Derek looked like they were fighting not to smile and I felt like going "Hey! Up in front! It's your wedding, smile if you want and damn the consequences!"
Does that make me bitchy? Possibly. Eh.
Then of course, Raven and I couldn't help but stare at some of the stuff people wore and go ".....what?!" At one point, I pulled a Chandler:
Me: Could that skirt be any shorter?
Raven: *starts giggling*
Does that make me bitchy? Most likely. It also probably adds evidence to Raven's theory that we're going to hell. For more on that and on the wedding, check out her journal: jaded_icy_rose.
But the point of this is, talk about a wedding that had me going "Huh?" Because I swear, they had friends in high school who would've been back for break. Why weren't they there? I get that they probably wanted something kind of intimate. But out of 200 invites, only a few were friends. And I'm thinking if that's the case then just invite family. Because literally, only five of us were from high school. And those that were there, besides me and Raven, clearly either a) knew more people in both families or b) are just more comfortable in that situation. Because it was a bit uncomfortable only knowing the bride, groom, 2 bridesmaids, and 3 guests...that I didn't come with. And those guests most likely didn't remember me. So.
Not saying have a big old party either but if you're going to invite friends...well, at least introduce them to people so they feel comfortable. Which okay, not their priority because hello! Just married. So maybe that's a completely pointless tangent to go off on but I'm not always comfortable walking up to a random person and saying "Hi! I'm Thalia and you are?"
How about no?
Honestly, I don't mean to sound bitchy and critical of their wedding but little things like that got to me. Kind of felt like once we were there and said hi that there was no point in being there. As I put it "Wham, bam, thank you ma'am." was the feeling I got. Which isn't normally what you get when you go to a wedding. Or at least, I don't. Like I said, not expecting a full-blown "Give me like all the details of your life like so right now!" conversation because, again, just got married. But more than a "Hi, thanks for coming." and then having her walk away to talk to someone else for like 5 minutes would have been nice. (And even that "Hi, thanks for coming." got interrupted by the lady who came to talk to her about checks. Not asking, don't want to know.)
So, that may be overly critical or whatever. But it was just a bit of what I thought. Seriously. Where was the laughter, the "I'm so in love with you" looks, the smiles? They were gone. Just....poof!
Hmm...now I think to counter this, I'm going to make a post that's random and will probably give support to the theory that I'm insane. Which, hey, fun!
