Spent time with two sweet girls this week – 7 and 10 years old. We talked about the summer and how we are all busy with weddings. I attended two weddings of my husband’s colleagues. One couple now has a blended family with six children. The recessional from the ceremony was the theme from “The Brady Bunch.” Everyone giggled, cooed and cried.
The little girls told me of one upcoming wedding they will attend: “Our great cousin! And she is marrying a girl.” I commented, yes, girls sometimes marry other girls and boys sometimes marry other boys. When I asked if they were excited about the wedding, they both looked perplexed.
“Cathy, we have a question about our ‘great’s wedding’ ”
Hmm. I thought this conversation could get interesting.
“What is the question?”
“Well, if there are two girls getting married, who wears the dress?!”
I laughed. So sweet. Still, weddings come down to fashion curiosity.
“Well, you will have to go and see! Maybe both of them will wear dresses – or neither or just one of them. They can wear what they want,” I said.
The little one smiled: “Oh, I hope both of them do, that would be best.”
