Countdown to my daughter Tara’s wedding. Part 2

Originally there were going to be between 75 – 100 guests at the wedding in St. Helens. Tara and Kelly have scaled this down to 50. About 30 of the guests are family. Tara’s dilemma was that if she invited any one from her office to the wedding she felt she had to invite everyone.

TnK’s wedding is going to be a casual outdoor affair. It is not going to be a traditional wedding in the sense that they will not have any attendants. Tara couldn’t choose between her two best friends and her cousin who has always been like a sister to her. Kelly doesn’t really have any close male friends so they opted not to have a bride’s maid and best man. One of Tara’s best friends got ordained so she could perform the wedding ceremony. That was Kim’s awesome way of making herself an important part of the day. The other best friend Cindy will be doing Tara’s hair and makeup and the formal toast. Cousin Erika will be helping decorate, getting the flowers and making the invitations.

The reception catering will be done by Buster’s a local barbeque restaurant since Tara told Kelly they were not having what he wanted which is wiener wraps. I told Tara it is better not to ask the man “what kind of food do you want at the reception?” Last Saturday Tara and Erika went to the rental place to check out their tables, chairs, dishes, etc. I offered to pay because I could tell that Tara was thinking about the expense and wasn’t sure if she could do it that day. Then the three of us went back and I paid for everything.

The last untraditional part of the wedding I should mention is the “girlz” who will be walking Tara down the aisle.Here is Tara with one of them. Tara wants them to wear tutus but Kelly says “NO!” So they may at least have some kind of bow or flowers around their necks.

Tara and Emmie her favorite of the two girlz.
