The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ Give The People What They Want!!

I'm going to tell you a story using several adjectives. Are you ready? Ahem... Recently, I attended an insanely awesome wedding (of which I was a guest, not a planner) at a cool ass venue with delicious food, and a killer band. The bar was open, the signature drinks were a flowin', and the father of the bride delivered one of the best toasts I have ever heard in my wedding planning career. He involved the band. I know, right?? Seriously, at certain points in the toast, the lights would dim, the spotlight would shine brightly towards the stage, and the band would sing snippets of whatever prearranged songs he had selected. It was fucking marvelous!! And it wasn't just because I knew the family that made it so great, it was his delivery, and thoughtful anecdotes...

Anyway, as I mentioned, it was a very well done wedding. And you know what? I haven't even told you one of my favorite parts of the evening. The "afterglow". The after party. Fancy right? AFTERGLOW. Well, actually it wasn't all that fancy... More like a drunken shadow of the beautifully dressed guests who attended the wedding. But, they're all like that! Anyway, the party was hilarious. It was loud and a bit rambunctious... Ties were gone, shirts were untucked, shoes were off, updos were down... Seriously, it looked like a room full of "walk of shamers" who just didn't give a fuck, and were having the time of their lives.

And then the food arrived. Holy shit... The family arranged for platters and platters of McDonald's cheeseburgers and French fries to be delivered. Are you DYING? How fucking awesome is that? I mean... As a wedding planner, I've planned several "afterglows" involving pizza, fried chicken, fondue, etc., but McDonald's? Checkmate. Well done! Seriously, my hat goes off to the host. And you know what? You know you love it! And anybody who says they don't is a big, fat liar! Because, we all love McDonald's ! And after six hours of drinking, dancing and debauchery? There is nothing better than sinking your teeth into a cheeseburger from McDonald's.

Moral of the story? It's really simple, bridey. Give the people what they want! No more fancy food. No more signature drinks. Just a few deliciously decedent cheeseburgers, fries and a few beers to wash it down. Right? Just give the people what they want!!! What a fabulous end to a kick ass evening...
