First of all: Yay Giants!!!
This week at the Hall of Records was a very stylish one, with several well-designed bride/groom outfits. My favorite was a bride in a turquoise dress with a groom in a gray vest and trousers with a turquoise shirt. His tie was turquoise and gray with a matching pocket square. Very chic!
Second place goes to a bride in a white strapless dress with cobalt blue shoes. The groom? Cobalt blue shirt to match!
Now, as you can tell from the first sentence in this post, I am a Bay Area sports fan. I like every team we've got, no matter the sport. The most notorious are, of course, the Oakland Raiders, whose fans are called the Black Hole.
The biggest wedding on Friday featured a bride in a beautiful gown and a groom in a Hawaiian-style shirt with Raiders logos on it. Not to worry - several of the guests wore Raiders jerseys and the bride's bouquet had a Raiders ribbon around the stems! The groom cracked jokes during the vows, which is OK the first time or two - nerves and all - but grows exponentially wearisome and disrespectful to the bride and to me as it continues. My thoughts: Raiders fans have a bad enough reputation. Why play into that by being rude?
In conclusion: Yay Giants!
