Wedding Day… so much to do!

 

Ford Theater of the Performing Arts Oriental T...

 

After having the wedding rehearsal yesterday at the Earl Pabst Music Pavilion ( the Oriental Theater, which is the actual site, was not available ) and a grat rehearsal dinner last night, we are getting ready this morning for the event.

 

Outdoor Rehearsal

 

I haven’t worn a suit in at least 20 years, so this is a complex experience.

 

At 11:30 we take a bus to the Theater and everything starts:

 

• the ceremony

• the Toast bin a restaurant across the street

 

• the Reception in another Restaurant across town

 

I guess we”ll see a lo0t more of Milwaukee, which, so far, seems to be a city where the most imp0rtant activityu is drinking beer. Not something a teetotaller like me can participate in. Oh well.

 

I’ll get back to you all later.

 

 

Wedding rehearsal day… Have to make sure it’s not done wrong.

Today Bud and Rachel (known as Will and Rachel to their friends… his mother and I seem to be stuck on Buddy) will rehearse tomorrow’s wedding, then we will have the Rehearsal Dinner which we will be paying for.

We had breakfast here at the Hilton with my daughter Cassandra and her husband, Matthew. I understand my other daughter, Penny, and her kids are now in the hotel somewhere as are my mother and my sister. These Hiltons are making a lot of money off this one family!

More later…

I needed a laugh and found one…

…at All Hat, No Cattle:

Joke

A woman who had been married three times walked into a bridal shop one day and told the sales clerk that she was looking for a wedding gown for her fourth wedding.

“Of course, madam,” replied the sales clerk, “exactly what type and color dress are you looking for?”

The bride to be said, “A long frilly white dress with a veil.”

The sales clerk hesitated a bit, then said, “Please don’t take this the wrong way, but gowns of that nature are considered more appropriate for brides who are being married the first time – for those who are a bit more innocent, if you know what I mean? Perhaps ivory or sky blue would be nice?”

“Well,” replied the customer, a little peeved at the clerk’s directness, “I can assure you that a white gown would be quite appropriate. Believe it or not, despite all my marriages, I remain as innocent as a first-time bride. You see, my first husband was so excited about our wedding, he died as we were checking into our honey moon hotel. My second husband and I got into such a terrible fight in the limo on our way to our honeymoon hotel that we had that wedding annulled immediately and never spoke to each other again.”

“What about your third husband?” asked the sales clerk.

“That one was a Republican,” said the woman, “and every night for four years, he just sat on the edge of the bed and told me how good it was going to be, but nothing ever happened.”

 

Heeheehee… I needed that.  🙂
