Wedding/alarm bells

At a wedding on Saturday, five minutes past the time for it to start, the minister went to the microphone and began, “I don’t wish to alarm anyone, but…” — instantaneously alarming everyone.

The rest of the sentence: “…the shuttle from the hotel has been delayed and we’re waiting for a few more people.” Uh, okay.

Two friends and I rolled our eyes and whispered back and forth with more exciting endings for that sentence.

    A few weeks before my husband of 48 years and I were to be married, my parents attended a wedding where the groom was already waiting at the altar, and the bride decided, just before going down the aisle, that she didn’t want to get married. My father told me that, if I changed my mind about getting married, it had better be before he and I were ready to start down the aisle, or he’d see to it that I got there, one way or another!
