Describe a wedding you have attended
you should say:
when you attended the wedding
who you went with
what kind of wedding it was
and explain the feeling after you attended the wedding.
One of my best friend Wayne got married in October 2015. The ceremony was held in a luxury hotel in Fengtai District. I drove to the place in about 9:00 am, met with several of our mutual friends, left the present and got seated. The ceremony was generally Chinese style but without annoying cliché. I heard that the bride wanted to get married in a church, but since Wayne is not religious, they chose a Hotel.
The band was nice, the ceremony master was professional, neither too chatty nor too sharp. There were over 300 people at the wedding, I guess since Wayne has quite a social network out there. I only knew, like, 20 of them, since those are our mutual friends from middle school. I watched him take the oath and kissed the bride, thinking about the word “an end of an era”.
There are no such things as bachelor parties in China, but Wayne did invite me for a drink two days before the Big day and we got totally wasted lol. And just as I expected, he brought up Maggie and asked if I were coming to the wedding with her.
Long story short, Maggie was my first love as well as his best friend from childhood. Our competition, as well as friendship, originated from our affection for the girl. Wayne somehow quit when we were in college, so I have been the only one still seeking the answer from Mag. Anyway, I did contact her but she didn’t want to come. So Wayne made fun of me for that at the wedding, I mocked back “Hey, have you ever noticed that your trophy wife looks a loooooot like HER” and we both got punched in the shoulder by each other.
After all, he is my best friend. Whatever choices he has made, I would support him and wish him the best. Maybe it’s also a time for me to move on.
