The groom’s mum made the bride’s dress; the bride made her niece’s dress (she wanted to look like a mermaid). The bride’s ruby slippers were bedazzled by committee; the groom wore McQueen; the grown-up bridesmaids wore ’50s party dresses. We had a karaoke party the night before the wedding and went swimming in the day after. Everyone got a tiny bottle of tequila with their name on for toasts, and Future Islands played the reception. Best wedding ever.
