The niece got hitched. The wedding was nice. The rain held off until minutes after the ceremony was finished. There was a LOT of work getting it together and clearing up afterwards even though it was a fairly small family wedding (150 guests or so). I told Caitlin (my darling 16-year-old daughter) to pay close attention to the trouble and expense that goes into an event like this because I will definitely NOT be doing it for her. I would rather estimate the cost and hand her the cash instead (although I am not making that promise at this time either, girl).
