So a little girl goes to a wedding

It is the very first wedding she has been to and she is soooooooooooo excited (that is a full dozen Os excited). She kept asking her mom questions about everything.

"Why are there flowers everywhere?"
"Because the couple wants it to be pretty for this very special day"

"Oh, well why do I have to dress up?"
"Because we want to share in the very special day."

"Oh, but why are we in a church?"
"Because they want to be with God on their very special day."

On and on it went excited question after excited question and the mother began to get worried that the little girl wasn't ready to sit quietly through the service. The wedding procession began and the girl was asking questions about why the lady was crying, "Because she is so happy for her daughter on this very special day, " and why the ladies were dressing in bid puffy dresses, "Because they are the bride's closest friends and will do anything for her on this very special day," and why the other little girl was throwing flower petals on the ground, "Because the bride wants to walk on flowers on this very special day."

The mother was about to take her out when the wedding march began to play and everyone stood up. The mother cringed waiting for the questions to keep coming at the worst possible time but the little girl just stood their wide eyed, unable to speak. After the bride reached the front and was given away the little girl said so quietly, "She is so beautiful."

"Yes, she is dear."

They sat quietly watching the ceremony with the candle lighting, and special songs, and everything. The service had reached the exchanging of the vows when the little girl finally asked her mommy, "why is she wearing all white?"

"Because this is a very special day and it is the happiest she has ever been."


Then the girl sat there quietly with a very bothered look on her face. The mother was concerned because the little girl seemed to be getting angry. Just as the couple was exchanging rings she yelled out at the groom, "why are you wearing all black!?!?!"

This is my favorite wedding joke. I think I originally heard it while watching John Haggee. If you like him then I'll try not to say anything bad. I'm sure he is perfectly nice but not my cup of tea.

Apparently this was not my sister's wedding in the early 80's, where the groom and grooms men word light tan tuxudos and pink cumberbunds. I have no idea what that means.

Kathy, that makes the best jokes, when you don't see it coming.

katdish, it obviously means that your sister was in charge of what everyone else wore because not guy, 80s or not, is picking light tan tuxedos and pink cummerbunds. I have to admit though, that I'm partial to those pastel blue tuxes with the white ruffle shirt and color coordinated edging on the shirt and matching cummerbund. Now that is a classic look that will never fade.
