When Wedding Elves Desert by Meg Keene A long time reader sent me this great story, and how could I not share? A recent grad from the campus church was married this past weekend. She had your typical small, white wedding. But once the guests arrived at the reception, itbecame apparent something was very wrong. The caterer never showed up. Frantic phone calls were made, and once it was determined that they were a no show, the bride simply shrugged and said, “Well, I’m still going on my honeymoon!” So they all ate the cake and punch, and then the parents of the bride steered the guests in the direction of the local family diner (courtesy of the catering company) for some sustenance. The bride and groom ended up sharing another piece of carrot cake at the diner. Team Practical, meet our new rallying cry: “Well, I’m still going on my honeymoon!”* *Even if that honeymoon is nothing fancier than the rest of your life.
