So, what is the worst wedding you’ve ever attended??
Don’t know why this memory suddenly came creeping back to me.
The head secretary at the middle school I used to teach at invited most of the staff to the wedding of her daughter with whom most of us were acquainted.
First off, the wedding ceremony at the church lasted about two hours. Why?? Most of the relatives took the occasion to show off their wholly mediocre singing talents and at every break, another cousin, uncle, or aunt would come down and take the microphone and do some drippy song about the glories of love. That alone should have been the signal to get the hell out of there.
Then we head over to the reception. And where is the reception being held??? At the friggin’ middle school where everyone works!! We head over to the multi-purpose room a.k.a. the school cafeteria which was decorated as well as a school cafeteria can be. The wedding party is up on the stage and the buffet is placed out on actual lunch tables. Then followed another lame-o round of the relatives showing off their third rate singing and then finally it was over.
I had never seen such an obvious attempt to cheap out on a wedding. None of the teachers ever said anything to the secretary but whenever someone brought up the subject, we all gave that look of “Can you BELIEVE they actually did that??”
So, who else out there attended a tacky crap-fest in the form of a wedding ceremony?
