Don't take yourself to serious

When you are getting married you try to plan ever detail. You schedule tons of things and try and get the moment just right. Well you can't plan the people factor. Our ceremony was perfect. The music was just what I hoped it would be. I didn't want typical wedding day music and searched high and low for something that fit our location. A 1896 Victorian chapel in the shape of an octagon. It is really cute. I finally settled on combining 3 songs from the score of Pride and Prejudice (the remake). It was perfect. All the girls walked down. I walked down and didn't fall (miracle) my Dad gave me away. Then our ceremony was really emotional. I was grinning like crazy I was so happy. Eric on the other hand was a ball of emotion he was so choked up. (I absolutely thought it would be me crying.) He was so emotional there was not a dry eye in the room. Finally with all the seriousness done. Vows said! (we wrote our own and they were beautiful.) It was time for the big ring exchange.
We wrote our ceremony and had a part about my wedding band and my engagement ring. We had been engaged for 3 years so it seemed important to mention it. Well Eric's Brother, and Best Man goes to hand Eric my ring and oops he dropped it. I cracked up laughing it was so funny. His face was complete horror. Our Reverend, Deanna, laughed too. Eric had the "oh Brother" Charlie Brown face. It was so funny and broke the very emotional and sentimental tension during our ceremony. I wouldn't have traded it for anything. It just goes to show that you can plan everything down to the second but can't control everything.

So if your getting married and something happens, grin and laugh. It may make one of your favorite moments.
