My DH and I just attended the wedding our good friend's daughter. I was appalled by the way people behaved before and during the ceremony. I saw one guy w/ a water bottle drinking it in the sanctuary. People stood for the bridal party during the processional and the priest had to tell them to sit until the mother of the bride stood for the bride. Toddlers and young children were screaming and talking through the entire ceremony and parents didn't take them out! Cameras were flashing during the vows! A wedding is supposed to be a sacred covenant and it was more like a three-ring circus. I do not want this to happen at the weddings of my children and will do whatever precautions necessary to see that it doesn't. Does anyone else agree with me or is this just the way society does things now? Thanks for letting me rant!!
