@simplifiedbride: i didnt clap but at my cousins wedding i did something similar. it was mid july and super hot in a church with no air conditioning so thats all i could really focus on was staying somewhat cool. it was a catholic ceremony and there was the traditional stand sit kneel type stuff. I was in the 3rd row with my son and his dad and we had just stood up. at one point i remember thinking like “oh god when are we gonna sit?! its effin hot!” and then i glanced arounda nd realized me and my son and his dad were the only fools still standing. I guess i missed it when everyone sat down. how i have no idea but it happened. the funny thing is my mom and grandma and sister were sitting right behind us and no one told us! they just let us keep standing there like idiots. luckily it was a small group of people that attendd and was mostly really close family members so we were able to laugh at ourselves pretty easily.

Okay, so I went to a wedding in July of 2010, and it was a nice, small ish, family only thing. Well, it was definitley a DIY wedding, so props to the bride for that. But the groom’s side of the family (us) always takes like family portraits before and after the ceremony. (Like, EVERYONE.) Well, we were all stuck at the church taking photos, while the bride’s family went down to the reception hall. When we got there, there weren’t ANY tables left near the bride/groom for the groom’s IMMEDIATE family, and we all had to split up in awkward places. Me, Fiance, and FI’s sisters all sat with a cousin of ours to help with her four kids, (all under the age of 6). The only advantage was that the kids were well behaved (always are) and we were sitting RIGHT next to the cake table!

The dancing at that wedding was awkward too. Picture granny and great granny booty dancing to Lady Gaga in metallic dresses. Some things can’t be unseen.

 

And this might not count, because it’s a funeral moment… but I’ll tell you anyway. First off, we are spiritual, so death isn’t the end for us. Funerals are still sad, yes, but we have hope in life beyond this. So anyway, FI’s grandmother passed away in February ’10. We traditionally sing hymns at these things, no big deal. But, the guy at the funeral home who led the hymns was so off key, and so off tempo, that NO ONE could keep up…. and my Future Mother-In-Law starts cracking up… causing her husband (son of the deceased) to start laughing… and so our whole row was stifling giggles at how horrible this hymn thing was going, but at the same time, I was kind of mortified that we were LAUGHING in the middle of a FUNERAL. So, awkward.
