Thankfully, I had had about 15 glasses of champagne at this point in the wedding, because as you can see from my expression in the following photo, I was more than a bit nervous when Julie announced that it was time for the garter toss.
Being the extraordinary wedding planner/Matron of Honor that she was, Julie quickly filled up my champagne glass before forcing me to sit in a chair in the middle of the dance floor and showing more skin than I was comfortable revealing (especially in front of my Dad).
Most of the men at our wedding were not single and the ones that were definitely had had their fair share of alcohol (ie: my brother).
Which is why he did not think twice before he jumped for the garter.
How priceless is his face when he realized what he had just caught?
Then it was time for the bouquet toss. I love how competitive women get during this moment and my wedding was no exception.
In Argentina, most weddings do not end until sunrise, so even though it was pushing 2AM the music started up again.
It is nearly impossible to find the right words upon which to end this post. Thus, I think I will simply say: fairytales do come true.
