Wedding Rambling

Weddings can be both happy and sad.
Some feel sappy while others are rad.
Parents can be both helpful and rude.
Some names are a mouthful while others sound crude.
Brides can be both stressed out and calm.
Some show it with a tear, others a sweaty palm.
Grooms can be both nervous and proud.
Some want a small service, others want a crowd.

But whether its happy, sappy, sad or rad,
the guests are wild, with child, in heat or dressed neat,
the food is yummy like honey or bland like sand,
the music is awesome as a 'possom or plain and lame,
the weather is too hot to trot or pleasantly chilly and non-cloud-spilly,
the day really should be all about the love,
whether the couple fits together like a glove,
and giving them a little happily ever after shove.

This is my belated response to Smiley Sociology Study #6 on Weddings
Thank you to everyone who shared their link in the study.

This rhyme is being shared in the Poetry Pantry.

  2. I'm so glad you enjoy the studies! I'm happy to provide you with a shout out. :)

  3. I do find that weddings are either on a very hot day, or a very cold one.

  4. I think you covered pretty much EVERY possibility -- haha!

  5. @Matty - Yeah, I was pondering including some nice sounding weather, but... well, who gets that on their wedding day? :)

    @Dangerous Linda - I'm glad you think I covered it all! Hehe. I have worked at, attended and been in many weddings. :)

  6. you sketched the wedding by words, and make me can imagine very clearly....

  7. This is your ending!

    Thanks for sharing.

  8. @mpucukilaland - I'm glad my words triggered your imagination! :)

    @Andy - Hehe. Happily ever after shoving is fun! I'm glad you enjoyed my humor. :)
