Yah or nay?
I totally forgot about the two little girls who were at J's wedding. They arrived late at the church after everyone was seated and MIL and I were to be escorted to our seats. You could hear their sneakers squeak with each step they took up the aisle as they made their way to their own seats. (The sneakerrs were intentionally made to squeak.) My anxiety level was very high at this point and my jaw just dropped that parents actually dressed these girls in these shoes for a wedding. What were they thinking? I just pictured them stomping their feet when J said her vows. Well, they came back down the aisle squeaking to use the restroom and I about lost it. The wedding planner for the church was there and she looked at me and simply said, "I'll take care of it." I don't know what she said to the dad, but I didn't hear them the rest of the ceremony. And at the reception, I noticed they had on different shoes.
I would not have minded them wearing the shoes at the reception and would have thought it was cute as they danced. However, I draw the line at wearing them in a church. I found out later that J invited the family--she babysits the two little girls (who are twins). She it was probably the only way the parents could get them to come.
What do you think? Did I over-react? (Of course, now I can laugh about it.)
