Do you have your heart set on a Celtic-themed wedding? I’m (half Pennsylvania Dutch and the other half) Welsh and Scotch/Irish, so I’m all about it! We can incorporate a Celtic hand-wrap and blessing into the ceremony. I can wear my usual black and white ministerial vestments. Or, if you want everyone in plaid, I’m good to go! Call me and let’s get started planning the ceremony of your dreams.
So, I’m trying something on and I overhear this young woman in the next dressing room. She’s saying to an older lady, “I love the dress, but I don’t know if my husband will let me wear it.” *Let* her?!? And I’m thinking, “Honey, get the dress and get rid of the husband.”
When I write wedding scripts, I customize them to whatever the couple wants. But I tell them from the get-go, there’s one word I won’t put into a script, and that’s the word, “obey.”
When I went to make my purchase, the saleslady was weirded out too. She told me it was a pretty dress and not overly sexy or cheap-looking. “It’s supposed to be a partnership,” she said. “You come back soon, OK?” We smiled at one another, both feeling better. And I walked out into the breezy summer night with my treasures.
