Thoughts on weddings ...

Number one: There's a scene in "The Bachelor" (minute 6:30 for anyone who's following the link) where Rene Zellweger is left standing looming over a group of pre-pubescent girls during a bouquet toss. I think of this scene as I stand in a reception hall next to Bree and Haley, 24 and 22 respectively. I wonder how many more of these will pass before just one of us is left and then I look around and grin. Jules is beautiful. The reception is perfect. There's not a seven-year-old in sight.

Number two: Weddings should never be held in weather where it's so cold that the flowers need a fur wrap placed around them as much as the bride does in between photos to keep from freezing.

Weddings should not be in December. I know this from experience. Our Dec. 29 wedding didn't have snow, but we had MAJOR wind. No umbrellas survived.
