Musings: That One Time I was a GroomsLADY2:36 PM
I've always been one of the guys......and I've always enjoyed it. You don't see many of my guy friends on here, because to be honest, as we've gotten older I don't hang out with them as much as I do my girlfriends. You did recently see my trip to Texas (Part 1 & Part 2) with some of them documented, but that is very rare as of late.

|K & I after the rehearsal, on the way to dinner!|
After all of us were dressed and ready to go, with a few hiccups here and there with some of the fellas outfits, the fancy Whiskey started flowing. Shot after shot, we kept making up things to cheers about. One of the groomsmen bought G a really nice, huge bottle of Whiskey and they weren't letting that go to waste. Finally we made our way to the church.
The fella's boutineers were all lined up, then there was my lonely wrist corsage at the end of the line. I can't thank K & G for making everything to accommodating for me and making me feel included, even though my roll was so different from the norm. I kinda felt bad for the bridesmaid that got stuck walking with me. I can't remember her name, but she was a super champ about it. She knew her fate at the rehearsal, but it still didn't make it less kinda weird. We took it in stride. We laughed about it pretty much up until the the walk down the isle. If I remember correctly, I think we linked arms. I don't think I escorted her, per se...but honestly I don't quite remember.
The only other fuzzy memory is how I was introduced at the reception. Their reception was at my favorite, also the nicest restaurant, in Capitola. They have a 'quaint cable car' for goodness sake. It's fancy pants for sure, but it was lovely for their wedding. A night of friends, laughter, and love. The 'after party' was us all heading out in the little downtown village. If you've never been to Capitola, GO! It's the cutest little beach town, just a short drive from it's bigger and flashier cousin city Santa Cruz.
GroomsLADY, it's a thing!
