I received so many sweet comments from my two wedding posts and several questions as well. I don’t have time to answer all of the questions but I thought (since this post had a lot of wedding in it) I could answer a few here…
1. What did you do during commercial breaks at the live wedding?
The two cellist played music during the commercial breaks and we all sat and listened just like at a “normal” wedding. The entire service was very respectful. We didn’t get up and move around, no one had their makeup touched up and the director didn’t come forward. We all just sat quietly and listened until the service started again.
2. What does grown sexy mean?
I don’t know? Sophisticated, maybe? Maybe I’m not hip enough to know that lingo! Whatever it means, I think it translates into beautiful wedding…because that’s what we got!
3. How were we treated by the Bachelor staff?
They were so nice (as always!)! We really had a normal destination wedding experience. Everyone was so friendly and helpful…perfect.
4. Why didn’t I take more pictures of the bride and groom?
Because it was a normal wedding and I don’t normally stalk the bride and groom for pictures. I was having a great time enjoying our family and friends and they were having a great time making the rounds with their guests. I know some of you wanted 100 pictures of them…but I was really focusing on enjoying my little brother’s wedding and not so much on taking a million pictures of the two “celebrities”. I tried to take as many with them as I could without being that annoying sister who followed them around all night.
5. What did I think of the honeymoon talk?
I had one reader comment that she watched the wedding with her 3 teenage daughters and the honeymoon/suite cam stuff made her uncomfortable. Here’s the thing…married sex is awesome. I highly recommend that married people have sex. Yes, I think they focused too much on that aspect (them waiting until marriage to have sex) because there is so much more to their relationship than that one thing…but they did…and there isn’t anything we can do about it.
I will be proud to show this to my kids and explain to them that Uncle Sean and Aunt Catherine went against the norm and waited to have sex until they were married. I actually think it was the perfect opportunity for parents to explain waiting and abstinence to their tweens and teens. That being said, there was a lot of footage that was filmed of them that didn’t get aired and I’m bummed about that. These two are way more interesting than just the sex stuff.
Again, thank you so much for all of the sweet emails and comments! We just love you all!
