We’re down to the final two winners of our wedding story contest. Today’s tale is from Kathy, a former church organist, who probably has a lot more stories she could tell!
I used to be a church organist, and often heard wedding stories during rehearsal dinners. One groom related some unusual events which happened during his best friend’s courtship and wedding. Believe it or not, all of these events happened to the same couple.
“John” made elaborate plans to pop the big question during a romantic dinner at a lovely restaurant. “Mary” was fighting off a stomach bug, but sensed that John had worked very hard to plan something special and so she agreed to go out to dinner. Just as John popped the question, Mary was overcome by nausea….you can guess what happened next.
Fast forward to the morning of the wedding, when a phone call brought the news that the organist had fallen and broken her ankle. Since no substitute could be found, the bridal party walked down the aisle as 200 guests hummed the traditional bridal music.
Then it was on to the reception. In the middle of the minister’s prayer for their meal, a loud crash was heard. The bridal party and guests opened their eyes to see that the very long buffet table had spontaneously collapsed under the weight of the dinner and the wedding cake, all of which was in ruins on the floor.
Thinking nothing else could possibly go wrong, the happy couple headed off to a romantic honeymoon at a mountain resort in Pennsylvania. Mary thought the bubble bath John had run in the heart shaped tub was such a romantic touch. A very puzzled John, realizing he could take no credit for the bubbles, investigated further…..only to find their “bubble bath” was really backed up USED bath water from the room next door. John and Mary gave up and headed home, laughing at all of the stories they would be able to tell their grandchildren some day.
As for the groom who told me this story? His wedding went off without a hitch.
