I know what you’re thinking: What inspired this one, Wife? Well I was researching the latest news on The View host Sherri Shepherd yesterday (I interviewed her for work – she’s a doll!) and I stumbled across this video clip about how she went commando on her wedding day. Yup, she said “I do” totally pantyless. Rumor has it the advice came from bridesmaid and good friend Niecey Nash. I love that she did it, and even more so that she fessed up to it.
It got me to reminiscing about our wedding day and whether or not I had any naughty little secrets to share. Truth is, I do. Wanna hear it? Here it goes: I was completely nerve free up until the last few minutes before our ceremony began. When the nerves finally hit me, like a freight train, I hit the bottle – well, sort of. I took three tequila shots back to back right before I walked down the aisle. I was literally downing the last one when I heard our music cue up.
For some people that’s no big deal, but for a lightweight like me it was a huge mistake. Before I could even make it to the beginning of the aisle I felt lightheaded. Add to that the shock of seeing 150 smiling faces all staring at me, and I was seriously stunned. I confess, I was a little – okay a lot – tipsy going down the aisle. People thought I was sweating because it was sunny and I was nervous, but it was all the Patron’s fault – ha!
But, not to worry, I didn’t let it ruin the moment. I was quickly sobered by the momentous magic of the moment, but when I first met The Man at the altar he winked at me and mouthed: “How many shots did you have?” (He knows all my silly expressions.) I mouthed “Three!” He then whispered: “Meet you in the bathroom after the ceremony?” LOL! We never made it there but we laughed all night about what people must have thought we were saying to each other up there. So there you have it — my naughty wedding day confession. Watch Sherri’s confession and then share yours – don’t be shy, okay? I know you have one!
