…wedding! I can’t even begin to tell you how sick I am of going to weddings! It’s not the weddings, actually, but the receptions. Around these here parts, receptions are a big deal. Cocktail hour, sit down dinner, dancing and sometimes a fancy Viennese Table (outrageous dessert spectacle besides the wedding cake!). After a while, unless the couple is extremely creative or the venue is particularly beautiful, one reception runs into another.
So, here are our Friday Falderal questions to see what wedding receptions are like where you live:
Is it an insult for you to go to the reception if you don’t attend the wedding service? We, personally, feel that it is. However, there are usually so many people that the bride and groom wouldn’t notice.
Do you usually give money or a present other than money? We always give money. The tradition is to give enough to cover what your spot at the reception cost. We determine the amount by how close we are to the parents of the bride and groom (nearly every wedding is that of a friend’s son or daughter). Sometimes, I give a book such as a couples’ devotional as well.
Are you out on the dance floor or an observer? Usually an observer. Sometimes I’ll have a dance with Himself. When I was younger, though…
Do you know how to do the chicken dance? Of course! It is a staple around here. Well, it was…….

Uh, speaking of weddings, I neglected to mention it was our 21st anniversary yesterday. We invited our bcf (best couple friends) to share take out with us and had a very nice evening.
