Anyways, as expected, Mildred and her sisters all readily volunteered to look after Nutty while we ate...another reason why we brought her, because we knew there would be no shortage of babysitters. I wore a new silk maxi dress from Zara but regretted it as soon as we stepped out the door. Not only did I keep stepping on the hem, I was so concerned about getting drool on it. Plus everytime I stood up or sat down, it kept getting caught underneath my chair legs or Nutty's stroller wheels. Not good!
Hannah's gown was very simple but she looked stunning in it. It was a white strapless ballgown with black lace and beading at the bodice and waist. Later on she changed into a puffy maroon evening gown. The pre-requisite introductory montage was done slightly different. No childhood pictures, just a music video of them at their favourite activities and re-enactments of dates and the proposal. It was quite cool. The wedding favour was cool too, customised purple and grey M&Ms with "Just Married" and 'Ellis & Hannah" printed on it.
There was a slight mishap midway through dinner when a waiter dropped a tray of soft drinks right behind Ben, who was not spared. Ice cold Coke got poured on his back and some got onto Nick's suit as well. The banquet director was most apologetic and asked how he could make it up. He offered to launder Ben's clothes but since there was no permanent stain, Ben declined though joked that a bottle of wine would be nice.
