Wedding Photo Guessing Game

Great idea we will have to try that.
Last June we held a mock wedding. Well I can tell you the excitement leading up to it was fantastic. This wedding turned out so so well. I organised it just like a real wedding.
First off we looked for volunteers for the wedding party. We had a Bride 86 years old, chief bridesmaid 86 years old, a flower girl 81 years old (this lady really wanted to be involved in the wedding- so I said Rose you can be flower girl) Mother of the bride 89 years old. Father of the bride 85 years old.
Groom 98 years old, best man 79 years old, mother of the groom 76 years old.
We held a Hen Party and Stag Party on the same day with each group at different tables. We organised it just like a real Hen/stag party we had a pink theme for the Hens, and a shirt and tie for the gents. The usual funny glasses, head gear etc..
All residents were invited to the wedding we handed out proper wedding invites the week before.
The wedding was held in our lobby, we had a Top Table fully decorated with tablecloths and napkins, wine glasses, beautiful candlesticks, etc..
All the residents and staff dressed up for the occasion in their best dresses, outfits. We had live music. We had a beautiful Arch decorated with white and grey balloons.
We held the ceremony under the arch, all members of the wedding party party at the top table where we served finger food.
All our ladies wore a hat or facinator in their hair which I begged and borrowed over many weeks beforehand.
It was well worth all the time and effort involved in organising it .
