This is just a simple, basic lo because I wanted the story to be the focus. There are so many details to this story that I just couldn't include them all in my journaling, but tried to hit the highlights. The Reader's Digest condensed version goes like this:
These are my dgd's great-grandparents. The wedding was held up because they hadn't arrived yet. Come to find out, they got lost and went to a car dealership to get directions. The man there told them he would just program directions into their GPS. Little did they know, there were 2 weddings that day side by side. Yes, you got it!! They went to the wrong wedding!! Marched right in and put their wedding card into a well-displayed birdcage. Great-grandma felt uncomfortable because she didn't recognize anyone. Then she saw the bride (from behind) and felt somewhat better but realized the bride had long, blonde hair. She asked great-grandpa when my dgd did that to her hair. lol THEN, she looked around and noticed the groom's name was Derek!!! Oops! Now realizing they were at the wrong wedding, they made a beeline back to the birdcage to retrieve their card. Fortunately, one small corner was hanging out the side. Guests were arriving as they were trying to yank their card out. They said they both felt so embarrassed and felt like criminals. They finally got the card and were able to make their great escape without too much commotion. We sat next to them at the reception and laughed ourselves silly the WHOLE night over that wonderful story. It got better and better the more we talked about it!!!
I wanted this lo to just be fun and lighthearted. I know there are stunning birdcages out there, but I am also trying not to purchase new things and opted to make my own. I also wanted to be able to have a card hanging out the side! lol Thank you Vickie (AKA Happy Go Lucky) for sending me the pattern for the birdcage.
Thanks so much for taking your time to look. I hope the story brought a smile to your face too!!
