Kaiya Almost Ate Her Engagement Note

There once was a young lady named Kaiya, who planned her nuptials in the heart of the summer. Her fiancé had proposed last year and secretly placed an engagement note on her birthday cake. She almost accidentally ate her diamond note but she spat it out believing it was a silver Dragee. The note tumbled all over the dinner table and landed on her salad plate! She was surprised and couldn't believe Gregory's ingenuity! He quickly dropped to his knees and proposed.

Kaiya undeniably laughed and cried, "Yes, I'll marry you, dear! You are the man of my dreams."

They set a date for their wedding and Kaiya assured Gregory, she too would surprise him. All he needed to do was to appear neat and respectable on their holy day.

Kaiya Called Her Best Friend

Kaiya phoned her best friend Natalie the following day to broadcast the fabulous news. Straight away Natalie started to plan Kaiya's wedding. Natalie called Sara, Betsy, and Ina for help with the marriage ceremony. They decided on a riverboat wedding! They believed it would be romantic sailing through their town’s dainty river on a glorious Sunday afternoon with a lovely band playing the romantic sounds of classical music.

Kaiya's Friends Made All the Wedding Arrangements

Sara handmade all the delicate floral arrangements and decorations on the riverboat while Ina, the dress designer, decided to carve the patterns for the bridesmaid's gowns.

Kaiya desired a fairly grand wedding reception and planned to have twelve bridesmaids. Natalie was her maid of honor and her baby sister would carry her wedding ring on a white, silk pillow.

Kaiya didn't know how Ina planned to design her bridesmaids' dresses! Ina secretly combed through her friends' closets when she arrived for a surprise visit and picked a colorful dress for the bridesmaids to wear to Kaiya's wedding in order to save a bit of cash. She also instructed them to buy sparkling marshmallow shoes to match their bridal gowns. Kaiya planned to sing a romantic seventies song to her hubby and desired her bridesmaids to choreograph a snappy disco measure.

Kaiya's Fiancé Strolled in and Her Bridesmaids Were Ragged

Kaiya's appeared classic and fresh on her wedding day! Her hair was long, flowing and silky and her bridal dress was flowing. She stepped onto the riverboat and was awe-stricken by Sara's decorations. Sara had adored the boat with colorful handmade flowers on the tables, chairs, and walls. Her bridal flowers were delicately made of a shiny, silk material and she delicately placed a few lovely petals on her hair.

Gregory strolled in with a dainty, gray suit and the twelve bridesmaids sauntered in too. He grabbed Kaiya by the hand and she was terribly disappointed. Her bridesmaids' dresses designed by Ina were ragged and worn and the colors were awfully distasteful. Besides, the bridesmaids had eloquently painted red inscriptions on their arms which added to Kaiya’s discuss.

Gregory Hugged and Kissed Kaiya

The neighborhood preacher performed her ceremony and Gregory gently hugged and kissed Kaiya as she silently wept as she said, "I do."

She knew deep in her heart her bridesmaids' dress fiasco wouldn't go down without a tussle!

Kaiya and Inna Had a Tussle

Kaiya grabbed Inna by the arm and asked her why she decided to make fun of her and insult her on her wedding day. "What do you mean, I created lovely bridesmaids dresses for you!"

"No, you didn't! These dresses are sickly! You deliberately made these dreadful bridesmaid dresses to embarrass me!"

"Don't you know I had secretly chosen my bridesmaids' gowns from the lovely dresses they had stored in their closets to save a bit of money? This permitted the maids to purchase dainty marshmallow shoes for their disco number!"

The Captain Sped His Boat and Some Guests Fell Overboard

Kaiya accidentally stepped on Inna's toes, and she fell to the floor and clicked her heels. The captain heard the brawl and decided to speed through the river to reach the shore as quickly as possible. A terrible wind gusted and the boat violently rocked from side to side. A few guests tumbled off the boat and they screamed in fear.

Luckily the water was simply knee deep! Kaiya and Gregory leaped into the river as well and signaled their guests to toddle to the pier for safety.

Kaiya Vowed She Married the Man of Her Dreams

Kaiya's wedding was ruined! She didn't know what to say or how to apologize to her quests. Natalie quickly stepped in and assured everyone that what occurred between Inna and the bride was a terrible misunderstanding.

Gregory and Sara along with Natalie hugged Kaiya and said they would make it up to her.

"How could you compensate me? Today, I married the man of my dreams and this brawl and boat tipping will forever be my wedding memory."
