Weddings are such a joy!
Especially when the magic of television allows you to witness the marriage of the oldest son of a family with 18 children and a young, scared girl who may well have never seen seen a real, live penis before!
Okay. That was a little mean. And I think saving sex for marriage is a great thing (stop laughing, Marla, I really do!)! But if two grown adults sharing their first kiss ever at the alter was the norm, it wouldn't be on TLC!
I made sure I got dressed up in my "Maid of Honor" tee from Marla's bachelorette party and my bridal veil from my own for the blessed event of the A Very Duggar Wedding! My sister-in-law Ann Marie came over to enjoy the "munchies" reception help at my apartment, and we enjoyed everything from the homemade bridesmaid dresses to the slightly-painful-to-watch-it-was-so-awkward first kiss to the introduction of the Dr. Ed Wheat's "Love Life for Every Married Couple"!
Since the reception was a no drinking, no dancing affair, Ann Marie and I decided to spice things up a little, since it was, after all, our own private celebration of the Duggar marriage! And, to not be mean for a second, they really are a sweet (if exceedingly fertile) family, and they all seem to be very happy and blessed, so more power to them! It was cute seeing how truly happy everyone was for the cute (if not a little naive) couple!
So, Mazel Tov to the happy couple!!! L'chaim!
