Crystal Clear & Tomato Red

My hubby and I were dressed to the nines. It was the night of our wedding and we had every reason to celebrate. The grand ballroom was decorated with ivory roses and the stage was lit with fairy lights that made the whole evening seemed dreamlike. All eyes were on us and as we danced to “The Way You Look Tonight”, there was only one word to describe it all: Magical.

And then the leader of the band announced that my MIL (who knew that I love to sing) had requested that I get up on stage to sing a song. Gosh, I knew this was coming.

Being the complete sport that I was, I carefully stepped up on stage and asked the members of the band if they had the words to Shania Twain’s “From This Moment On”. It was a song that I had sung at my BIL’s wedding several years back and it was a good song for a wedding, I thought. They said no, but I decided to go ahead and try to remember the words and sing it anyway. I told them to play it in the key of G. As I sang the first note, the crowd cheered. And everything went well until one particular note where my voice decided to BREAK at that very instant! On that one note, I really wanted to bury my head in whatever item I could find. But embarrassing though it may be, my guests all clapped (bless them!). Maybe they were all drunk or something. Sigh.

So when I was recently asked by Paris to recall my most embarrassing moment, I couldn’t remember any other more recent embarrassing moment; hence this would have to be it.

And today, exactly three years have passed and I can still remember that incident. In fact, it has also been caught on video! *shudder* Would I have a chance to redeem myself in future? Time will only tell.

Three years of wedded bliss, three years since we said “I do” and pledge our undying love for each other. And you know what, my love? I still do, and I always will.

    My cousin sister also sang at her wedding, both the church ceremony and the dinner, accompanied by her hubby on the saxophone. So romantic…

    But as for me, I think I shall carefully avoid all requests for anyone intending to hear my singing voice then. The crystal champagne glasses might just break! LOL!

    The Giddy Tiger says: Will you invite me to sing at your wedding? 🙂
