And the winner is...

I went to a wedding this weekend. I almost missed it due to everyone wanting me to be there but forgetting to tell me the actual date and time - funny how those little details can slip people's minds. But I made it, I took some pictures and I even went out later that night with the bride and groom. We had fun! But that isn't the story here. And I am not going to go into the little things that struck me at the wedding, no the story is...

For the first time in just shy of 20 years, I didn't catch the garter! Not all the weddings I have been to have had the garter toss but until this one I was the one to catch it if they did. I used to have a little collection of them going but have managed to lose them throughout the years. Now, if you believe the tradition then I should have been married many times over. Alas, I am still single. Too bad Mythbusters doesn't do a show on that little myth/tradition.


  1. I've caught the bouquet more times than I can remember also (Probably because I'm taller than everyone) and yes, I'm single. They totally lied to us!

  2. Ha. Well, you know what this means, don't you? If every year you catch it you DON'T get married....

    C'mon, with me here!

    I'm not a huge fan of these traditions, anyway.

  3. Well... According to a Facebook quiz I AM supposed to get married on November 24 (or 25th _ can't remember off the top of my head and can't check from work) this year. But then, I've only been on one date this year - and it is a stretch to call that a date. So, as my friends who read the post on FB have been saying, I gotta get something going to make the date. LOL!!!

    I don't see it happening this year even though I broke my own tradition of catching the garter.

  4. I think Kathryn is right. You've broken a cycle and it can only get better from here.

  5. November 24 is around the corner...perhaps it will be your years seeing as you DIDN'T catch the garter. Howzat theory?

  6. I'm blog hopping, discovered your blog via another, and perhaps the above commentors are right, you broke the cycle.
