Bride’s Log : Day Six Part X : Toasts, Dancing & Cake Cutting
September 10, 2014
Hilarious yet also extremely memorable toasts, dances with our parents and an entertaining cake cutting, this party was well on it’s way. Extra dancing was even snuck in here and there.
While people were eating and serving themselves at the buffet, my mom, her mom and I stole some grooves on the dance floor.
And then people began toasts. Starting with my maid of honor. This is when she remarked that Erick was so swol. Oh boy, does he like to show off.
Then it was Erick’s best man and elder brother, commenting about how he’d watched him grow up and become his own man. 🙂
My eldest sister made the weepy princess toast. I thought she wasn’t going to make it through at one point.
I really liked that the photographers caught a moment of us sharing a cheers after her toast.
Then it was time for sister #2’s toast. 🙂 She was way too adorable.
And I feel like she’s gloating over the fact that she managed to have a glass of Magicale. ^^;
Then it was sister #3’s toast. She was so nervous, it was adorable and she had some sweet things to say.
I really enjoyed how Tatjana’s toast made our friend tables cheer. XD
Tyler’s speech was simple and to the point, which was great because we started realizing how many people we’d asked to give toasts at this point and it was entertaining, but still long.
My father-in-law’s toast was one of the most memorable. “Erick, no.”
It was really wonderful hearing my mother-in-law’s speech. All the time, I hear about how wonderful everyone thinks Erick is, so it was pretty fantastic being on the opposite side of the coin for once.
Although my mom claims she didn’t get emotional during the ceremony, but I think it was opposite in her toast.
And my dad’s toast was definitely tied with Cleo’s when it came to my favorites. He had amazing wonderful advice and he really put a lot of thought into his toast.
It was then time for the parent dances. Starting with myself and my father.
Followed by Erick and his mom. They had some really touching moments.
Then it was time for the anniversary dance. It was really fun getting to see all the married couples flood the floor and then dwindle down in size.
Erick’s aunt and uncle were the longest married and we had prearranged to have their first dance song play when they came out the victors. 🙂
The dance floor opened up and our guests really boogied down. 😀
It was cake cutting time! We were really excited about it.
Then Erick decided to play mischevious and I reacted poorly, getting cake into my eye.
And my DoC scolded me. Look at Erick. >.<;;
Cake cut and served, people returned back to the dance floor. We can’t stop the rhythm here!
All too soon, it was time for some very very special guests to arrive.
