I am always complaining about bloggers who don't post regularly. Today I realized that would also be me. Sorry I fell down on the job. I want to blame it all on Joe, our guest blogger. I heard he had such a day last Friday and hoped he would write about it. So far no luck on a post from him. Not his responsibility to keep my blog going. But I wish he would write more often for us. Please Joe, write another post sometime soon
I have all kinds of notes on weddings so I can write a blog today, and maybe later this week get another one in. I write about confidential licenses often. How only the couple has access to the license, and how it takes a court order for anyone else to see the license.
I had a couple with a confidential license last week. And they had no idea what it was. They had just marked the box on the form and that is what they were sold. Before I married them I gave them the pros and the cons of their license. After I was sure they understood what it meant, then I did the ceremony.
The next couple also had a confidential license. They totally understood what it meant, and it was what they needed. They were a same sex couple from Texas, which is not a same sex friendly state.
And then there was the bride in the long turquoise dress and the groom in a suit. All of the guests were dressed up. Little girls were in frilly dresses. It was a large group and when I asked the necessary question, is everyone here, I expected a yes. Nope. Some of the guests had a fussy baby and decided to walk him outside. They told the couple they would be back in 30 minutes. Who does that do a couple? I had to tell the couple if they wanted the others there for the ceremony, they couldn't go up to the Wedding Room. I had other couples waiting. They were unhappy, it was their turn. They wanted to wait upstairs. Sorry, but it is a Wedding Room, not a waiting room.
