today at lunch, a coworker and i were talking and we got on the subject of one of his sisters who is overprotective of him and hard on his girlfriend. i told him about how joe’s sister and i didn’t get along at first and how at my wedding i kept thinking, what if she objects?
that, of course, brought up the question, what would you do if someone objected at your wedding? kevin said he would probably put it off for a couple of weeks. i honestly can’t remember if our officiants asked that question, but if they had i don’t really know what i would have done if someone had objected. once the shock wore off, i’m sure we would have moved forward with the ceremony, but that definitely would create a rift between us and the person who objected.
at most weddings i’ve been to the officiant said, “if anyone objects to this union speak now or forever hold your peace,” but you never expect anyone to say anything. i don’t even know what i would think if i was at a wedding and that happened. so now i’m throwing this question at you guys. what would you do if someone objected at your wedding?
