Totally love the pink parasol! Weddings and party planning are popular here at ALB. They go out of date quickly and at the same time they give us a great glimpse into the past. Yes, they need to be preserved, just not at a public library.
My idea for unexpected guests is ordering a pizza but this idea works well too. I am concerned that a bride would go into shock at such an event. Best part of this book: throwing your brother, nephew or son a bachelor party. I am curious on the etiquette of paying for strippers and such.
Gotta say I am loving all this wedding stuff as I prepare for my future role as mother of the groom. I am still concerned that my future daughter-in-law has no idea what marrying into our family actually entails. Personally, I believe alcohol was invented to make family events more tolerable.
