Love is in the Air
Just typing that title I had to sing the song Love Is In The Air by John Paul Young. The flowers has bloom, the sun is shining, the weather is nice, so it must be time to get married. Almost every week I am hearing cars blowing their horns driving down the street. When I first moved here I thought my street was an accident prone street until one day I looked out the window and saw cars in bows, flags, and people waving out the window. Even saw horse carriages. It was a delight to watch and seen that I and others had front row seats. Now of course when I hear horns I no longer run to the window or think an accident as occurred. I continue chatting on the net playing spade just smiling to myself that someone recent is married.
I do so love weddings. Mostly the free food. Well not really free when you bring a gift right, lol. But still it is nice. You see two people so happy making a promise to each other that you hope they keep. You watch the guy looking so cool and calm. You listen to the bride nervous can be checking that everything is okay and going as plan. I always have to laugh even when it was my turn. We planned our wedding and had everything organize. But not everything turn out as plan. Hubby and I did not see eye to eye a day before the wedding. We are both stubborn. I took my bride maids went out and had a great time in Canada. Next morning I went straight to my mother and told her the wedding as been cancel. She said what? While my aunt laughed and said, “I told you that your daughter was crazy!” I explained everything to her. She reassured me that I was nervous to settle down and that by next week John and I will be lovey dovey once again so stop wasting people time and get married. I was so piss that she was not on my side. I called John and we discuss our stubbornness, laugh, and hugged. My mom was right we forgave each other and said lets get married. We been bumping head for 9 years now with football helmet on, lol, eventually one of us cave in.
One of my neighbor which is also a friend share a common interest with me “watching weddings”. 15 minutes walk from my flat is the old Rathaus where people get married in from 9 I think and finish at 1 o’clock. The ceremonies last for 30 minutes. We were eating lunch across from the old Rathaus three weeks ago and saw a couple cutting a log. The log represent team work because they both had to cut a thick tree log together until it breaks into two. My friend Sue and I laughed because you can tell they were getting tired plus it was a bit hot. We even took photos of it but it is on her phone. So we made a plan to go for lunch again last week at the exact place having front row seat. We watched so many people married that day. One family in particular surprise the bride and groom with a table of food platters, glasses of Sekt, breads, fruits, and etc. They even had a bed sheet with both of their names on it. In the middle a symbol of two rings and the date married. They had to cut out the heart shape together and walk through it. Again another symbol of team work. They stayed in front of the old Rathaus for perhaps a hour celebrating.
In France John and I walk right into a wedding. The first thing I heard was horn being blown down the street. I knew it was a wedding but then I seen an orange flag and said, “oh someone must won.” Walk down farther and it was a wedding for sure. Tons of Mercedes and a Royal Royce. It was a Turkish wedding I believe. Did not asked the people their nationality. The bride was so beautiful and the groom was a handsome devil. I watch him take off her veil and the music start playing and they both started to dance.
Later when it was time to go back home. John and I seen a lady dress up in all pink but look a bit silly with two friends in pink and black. Immediately I knew it was a future bride perhaps about to do some traditions or going to a bar and kiss guys for money who knows. Then not too far away we seen her partner, lol. He too was wearing pink and look sexy has can be swimming in the fountain water with a ball of chain tied to his leg. Oh the joy of getting married.
Are you married, ever been, if so what was your wedding day like and if not how do you picture it to be?
