Repartee Referee

It's your loyal linguistic pundit (::wink wink::) here, with another round of wedding witticism. Have you cottoned on yet to the fact that I consider wordplay a full-contact sport?

We hoped to try a variety of cake combinations, but since the baker was a fondon't, we only sampled confections topped with butter cream.

a fiancee (and/or fiance) that is inappropriately focused on the potential gifts, and other objects, that guests might bestow upon them

Every weekend, Macy's housewares department is inundated with betroved couples working on their wedding registries.

bouquet garni
any of the various accoutrements -- including brooches and lockets -- decorating the bride's bouquet handle

A quick perusal of Etsy practically overwhelmed me -- so many beautiful options for bouquet garni!

wedding knight

Did anyone step in as your wedding knight? Do you love the stuff, or are you a fondon't?
