Somewhere Down in Texas: Spaghetti Arms

We started wrapping up the night with the traditional garter and bouquet toss. Originally I'd wanted to attach gift cards to both so the competition would be more exciting, but in all the hustle and bustle getting things ready this idea fell through the cracks. Which was bad news bears, because nobody even tried to catch either! Mega lame. Hey, at least the bench got to make its big debut! I decided to get a little saucy with it

We lined up all the fellas, and then Mr. SD stretched that sucker out to make it fly.

So um, didn't go far at all. It totally wimped out like, 2 feet from my groom. Here he is demonstrating the enthusiasm he expected from his men.

That's ok. At least his little brother stepped out to pick it up, though I'd hate to know what that means for the other fellas. They have a loooooong time to wait if the 13 year old is next up to get married! Though that may be alright with them ;)

Now it's my turn. I borrowed a bridesmaid bouquet so mine wouldn't get all rumpled. 

Argh! Mine wouldn't fly either! It was way too light, kind of like trying to throw tissue paper. No bueno. At least one lovely lady decided to go out on a limb and pick it up, I hear she and her fella have been together for a bit!
So overall, a somewhat disappointing showing from the Sand Dollars. We couldn't even make it to our crew! But, we got our photo ops, and it was worth it in the end. So, as much fun as this whole party has been, now it's time to roll out!
