Abandoned at the Altar

abandoned bouquetOn a recent walk around a marina, I passed a set-up for a wedding. Petals scattered on the aisle, a few chairs askew; it was obvious a ceremony was held some time earlier. Then I saw a large bouquet on one of the chairs.

Though I could see the happy reception underway on the other end of the patio, with the bride and groom at a head table smiling and kissing, etc., I couldn’t help but be struck with the forlorn image of a bridal bouquet left on a chair of an empty set up for a wedding ceremony.

  1. That’s so odd…I’ve never been to a wedding without a minor scuffle over the bouquet. Then again, I do live in the south where it’s still super important to catch a man.
