Succinctly yours: the couple

Photo provided by Grandma's Goulash
The couple were oblivious to comments as they left the church.
They'd agreed to wear their favorite outfits for their wedding, so they did.

Grandma, of
Grandma's Goulash,
asks us "How low can you go?"
Then she provides a photo and says:

"Use the photo as inspiration for a story of 140 characters OR 140 words. It doesn’t have to be exactly 140, just not more."

That would be quite a wedding. Nice one.

Any couple who can accept their differences has got better odds on making the marriage last. IMHO, anyway. Not that I'm a very good judge of lasting marriages. :D

Kay, I love it! I wonder if he knew what he was getting into. She looks pretty bad wearing those black shoes.

Cute take on the photo prompt, that would have been some wedding. It sort of looks like she is doing her best to pretend he isn't there. LOL!

I have nothing against the wedding outfit, but he at least could have wiped off the scrambled breakfast egg of his mouth before biking to the wedding !

Elaine said...

That made me smile! Good for them, I say.

I love it, Kay! I've seen all kinds of wedding attire, but this is the first clown outfit! Thanks for the laugh!

It's all about what the bride wants, isn't it? So classy!
