On Tippy Toe, Union Square

Dancer, Union Square

A contortionist kept a small crowd enthralled while he twisted, turned and stood on tippy toe.


My friend's wedding last weekend wedding in Cape Cod was a smashing success, and a prime example of weddings suited to the culture of the times. He's an architect, she an aspiring artist. They're saving their money for a down payment on a home.

The dresses for the bride and bridesmaids were from J. Crew. The wedding cake were cakes, plural, actually sponge cakes from Trader Joes, spruced up with fresh fruit. A buffet dinner for well over a hundred guests meant fewer waitstaff. The bar sported only beer and wine, no hard liquor.

And instead of a band, the music was assembled on the groom's ipod, and the dancing went on for hours.

Def the way to do it with a wedding. I think people enjoy themselves more when it all feels relaxed. If it is a posh do you always feel that you have to act in a certain way.

And expensive weddings cost so much for just one day's fun.

I would def have a DIY wedding if I were ever to go down that route again.

I love the thriftiness of the wedding! We spent way too much money on our wedding.
