Weddings Are Hilarious

If you’re going to have a wedding that is actually a really spectacular party where someone just happens to commit themself for eternity to someone else, like Captain Thoughtful and I are, there are a few things that you absolutely must have. The first is a very good DJ or band. The second is delicious food and refreshments. And the third is glow-sticks. Because, nothing says “Let’s party y’all!” Like glow-sticks.”
Bubbles, rose petals, and sparklers are played out. I’m telling you, it’s all about glow-sticks. I know this for a fact, because it was my Mother’s suggestion and that woman is always on point.
Mom: Can we have glow-sticks at your wedding reception.
Me: Obviously. I LOVE glow-sticks.
Mom: They will just put everyone in the right mood.
Me: I totally agree.
Mom: Cool. I’ll order them. But, I’ll order only white glow-sticks so it’s, like, classy.
Me: Well played.
And that’s how it’s done.

    This is awesome. We ordered lanterns that we released off the beach and it was gorgeous and super fun. The glow stick idea is totally awesome (love the white). It’s amazing how much creative light makes the night special! Even though the wedding’s over we are planning a holiday party next week and I think you’re spot on: nothing says party more than glow sticks!!

    1. That’s lovely! We aren’t allowed to have open flames at our venue. All our candles have to be in closed lanterns, but I love the idea of releasing lanterns off the beach. Sounds so magical!

  2. Hahahahaha. I love it! I was actually thinking, “But glowsticks have those weird colours and can be kinda trashy…” GOOD SAVE, MOM!
    You also need to NOT run out of liquor!

  3. Haha I think it’s a super idea! White glow sticks are definitely classy. I don’t know if I’ve ever even SEEN them in white before because generally, when I am in the presence of glow sticks, I am at a strictly un-classy affair (like somewhere dark and loud in Las Vegas.) And there they are most certainly tasteless colors, like purple and orange and green.

    Your mother is on to something. πŸ™‚

  4. Love it! True story: My son and daughter in law were married under the 150 year old tree in our backyard. The food was wonderful, the dj was great and the couple was so happy. After they had changed, we were ready to send them off into their new lives. We did so with sparklers. In the breezeway between our house and garage. Pandemonium ensued as the smoke as the overwhelmed and somehow the tunnel-like location did not help. It was a gasping/choking mess. Nothing says classy like white glow-sticks

  5. “Spike: It’s nice to watch you be happy, for them, even, I don’t see it a lot, you, uh… you glow.
    Buffy: That’s because the dress is radioactive.” -BTVS.

  6. Comedy genius! Glow sticks are the way forward. I am attending a wedding soon. I will have to take some with me. I know it will be much appreciated. Traditional gifts are passe. Who wants money, champagne, or kitchen utensils anyway?
