Weddings are a fun affair. Well, I’ll amend that. Weddings are a fun affair for those who attend it and have no part in the planning and don’t take part in the actual ceremony. For those people, it’s a stress-filled event that seems akin to spinning eight plates in the air at the same time. One or more of them’s gonna come crashing down, likely. The priest is late… the wrong food came… the best man was found with the bride. Wait. That one’s like all of the plates crashing down at once. Then there’s a situation like this that’s still adorable after a mess-up.
We see a young ring-bearer. He’s supposedly a year old. He begins walking down the aisle after a bit of prompting. Were I there, I would be worried about the way he’s carrying the pillow – if the ring is on there, it might be rolling under a pew before very long. He makes it right before the altar… and then the enormity of what he’s doing seems to strike him. “Holy moley! I’m helping two people get married! They will be together and eventually make some kids… and I won’t be the cutest anymore!” With that, he stops and tosses the pillow at the altar. It’s a pretty good throw for a kid his age.
It ends with his father, who is in the wedding party, having to run out and grab him. The audience laughs. But this kid knows… it’s on video now. This will follow him for the rest of his life. He’ll be at job interviews and the interviewer will say, “Oh… you’re the ring-bearer who threw the pillow. “ In all seriousness, he’ll be able to laugh it off. He was a kid, for crying out loud. Now if he’d acted like that when he was 30… that’s a different story.
There are all kinds of wedding videos out there… from the absurd, like a member of the wedding party accidentally knocking the bride over into a pool, to dogs partaking in a wedding. This is up there in the ‘cute’ category. I’m sure that the rest of the wedding went off smoothly, without a hitch. Until the DJ showed up drunk. I kid… I kid.
This little boy was such a cutie. C’mon. How silly did you act when you were that age? What’d you think? Tell us in the comment section below.
