Wedding Wednesday--Wedding Crasher

All dressed up and no where to go--Wedding Crasher Jen in 1990(?)

Who knows what year, I don't remember.  What I do remember is that my friend Kim didn't want to go to her cousin's wedding alone.  So we had a two-fer plane ticket to Miami and I went as her plus one. 

Sort of. 

While I was permitted to attend the ceremony, there was an Aunt who did not understand my presence and requested I depart the reception pronto.  AWKWARD and rather funny.  I always thought she was afraid Kim and I might be gay and she wasn't having it.  I don't know where the communication broke down.  I did not need to be there but I assumed it was discussed before I ever boarded the plane.  I still had a very pleasant trip and beach time to boot. 



  1. Oh my goodness! What a crazy story. I wonder if that Aunt ever got the right story from anyone in the family. Nice dress, by the way. Love the blue!

  2. Jen, don't forget, the Aunt made her husband do the dirty work and boot you out.

  3. @ Diana. Not true. He was super sweet to me. Oh wait, I think you're right. He was mortified but very kind in theory.

    Thanks J. Green! I was even at the Aunt's house meeting everyone before the wedding so it wasn't like I was an unknown on the day. Oh well. Long ago now.

  4. Oh, my! That's crazy, but I'm sure you handled it with grace.
