Weddingnesday… scenes from an impending marriage

23 Nov

weddingbook e1322077461842 Weddingnesday... scenes from an impending marriage I picked up this book on my last visit to London.
I bought it because I’m a graphic novel geek
(not sure if I’ve mentioned that before)
and I have other books by the same writer.

I’d expected it to be good.
I hadn’t really expected
to go through it nodding.

“That was so us.”

“Um, this was us.
Oh and this.”

“And heck, this too.”

Yup, we are not original, unique snowflakes!

Here’s the bits that were very us:

This:

scenesfromamarriage1 Weddingnesday... scenes from an impending marriage (It may have been me who brought up eloping. A lot.)

This:

scan 2 Weddingnesday... scenes from an impending marriage (Every single bit of this was us. Except we didn’t go and help a charity!)

This:

scan 7 Weddingnesday... scenes from an impending marriage (Ah the rain question… Look at weather website, fret, and repeat.)

This:

scan 8 Weddingnesday... scenes from an impending marriage (This conversation happened a few times.
The funny thing is that in the end
the other half invited so many people
that we nearly didn’t have enough seats.)

This:

scan 4 Weddingnesday... scenes from an impending marriage (On the Thursday before the wedding, I tried shopping
for wedding socks. For the groom, best man etc.
And all that happened was that I lost my mind
in John Lewis and had to go home instead.
The responsibility of socks was too much for me!)

That:

scan 3 Weddingnesday... scenes from an impending marriage (Our wedding was the same week as a funeral.
As a result, we kept calling our wedding a funeral.
And the funeral a wedding. Finding yourself
talking about making a bouquet for a funeral
is a very, very odd thing indeed.)

This:

scan 6 Weddingnesday... scenes from an impending marriage (We painstakingly handmade, hand-wrote our invites.
Crazy fools that we are. This makes me laugh
in a slightly manic way as a result.)

And that:

scan 5 Weddingnesday... scenes from an impending marriage (Perfect is overrated. Really it is.
Something will go wrong.
And guess what? No-one will notice.
Except you. But by that point,
it’s just funny. And screw it,
you’re married. So who cares?)

******
So, anyone else  over-identifying?!
(For those who had the scanner gift list,
there’s a bit in the book about that too!)

Also I can’t decide if this book would be good
to give to friends when they get engaged?
Or to only give to them once they’re married?

P.S. Apparently this book was originally
the favour for their wedding.
How cool is that?!
