Elizabeth Anne VanderPutten - John's and Jean's Birthday

A Red Bow Tie and Cummerbund
By Lorie Loken

Laurie relates a charming little story about her about-to-be son-in-law's choice of wedding attire and a great start for a marriage.

Richard and Stephanie

Richard and Stephanie 

Richard wanted to wear the red bow tie and cummerbund. Stephanie had told him it was his wedding and he could pick his tux and such. 

So of course he picks this. When he picked the red (the accent color of the black and white theme) she grimaced, would he please go with black? 

No, he wants to wear the red. No one wanted the red and tried to talk him out of it. the night before the wedding, he sat down with her and told herů

I got the black. I am going to wear it for the wedding, but for the reception I am wearing the red. 

She was thrilled and how is that for a great start!
