It is based on a conglomeration of real events but is not about YOU ;)
Recently I attended a wedding.
Recently my husband attended a wedding.
The wedding I attended had lovely flower arrangements on the tables, accented by candles and various tchotchkes. The chairs had fancy white chair covers with bows on them and we had heavy linen napkins. The music was far too loud. The dancing went on far too long. The food was passable. We had plain twist rolls for washing. I was seated with several good friends.
The wedding Avram attended had no flower arrangements or tchotchkes on the table. The chairs had no covers and he had simple polyester napkins. The music was far too loud. The dancing went on far too long. The food was pretty good with huge pull apart rolls for washing. Avram was seated with men he had little to do with but whose wives were good friends of mine.
We were at the SAME WEDDING.
It might interest folks to know that:
Some men DO APPRECIATE flowers and nice appointments.
Some women DO APPRECIATE yummy pull apart challah rolls.
The music is ALWAYS far too loud.
The dancing ALWAYS goes on too long.
It's not always a good idea when doing seating to put husbands and wives at mirror image tables. They often have different social circles and if you are already making them sit apart from the one person that they probably (hopefully) want to sit with the most, at least put them with people whose company they enjoy.
Thanks for listening and Mazel Tov to all!
