Five minutes into Miss Eugenia Talbot's presentation at court, notorious rogue Mr. William Grant made her laugh, ruining her debut.

  1. Sounds like a sweet story all in all.
    And a nice giveaway.

  2. The worst wedding gift I received (at least I thought so at the time) was a Betty Crocker Cookbook. I was insulted, thinking that my husband's grandmother thought I couldn't cook. It turned out to be a very handy gift that I used for many years, and still have.

  3. I would have loved to have gone to the Royal Wedding (Prince William & Kate). But really I would not have been able to handle all the crowds without having bad panic attacks.

  4. Okay, where to begin! Let's see
    Worst- A friend of mine got married after her first year of college to her high school sweetheart.

    A little back story here-her and her boyfriend, my cousin and the guy I introduced her to, and me and my boyfriend were together all through highschool. Except lucky me- I got dumped during senior yr. However, they all remained friends with my ex.

    Okay forward a year. Still hard for me to face him,my ex- this is my first love.And my friend is getting married. I had to WALK DOWN THE AISLE WITH HIM in the wedding! They arranged us by height and I had to hold his arm. Did no one know how awkward that was for us??

    Forward three years- the other couple my cousin and her high school sweetheart are getting married. Yep, two couples from high school got married. This time, ex first love has a girlfriend (might have been fiancee not sure). This time not as hard to see him. We'd talked at college sometimes. Anyway, ex's dad comes up and gives me a giant bear hug and tells me how much he misses me and how great I look and goes on and on about my life and what am I doing etc. I had to be rescued by someone! I never knew he liked me that much! Or maybe just didn't like the new girl that much.

    Then my uncle (father of the bride) made some not so nice remarks about her hirsute body and a member of the animal kingdom. I think I felt better than the bride that day!

    My wedding day was wonderfully easy as far as I know. If something happened, I have no idea. They kept me blissfully unaware.

  5. i liked smushing the cake in my hubbys face heeeee

  6. Thanks for the fun post! This book sounds awesome :) I also would have loved to have gone to William and Kate's royal wedding!

  7. have you read this one Carrie? it sounds cute.

    My husband & I got married on the Navy base when Kevin got out of boot camp. It was just me, Kevin and my best friend. We wen tho Busch Gardens for the day and bought a cake at the grocery store. Very low budget lol

    I guess it worked because we've been together for 26 years.

  8. Weddings can be fun. The worst one I ever attended was the first wedding I went to in Philadelphia that had an emcee. It was like I was on a game show. Not very romantic at all.

  9. Best wedding present was a box of kitchen linens that I didn't reach the bottom of until 10 years later! The wedding went off without a hitch!

  10. Both our son and daughter had weddings last year!
