W-Day - 2

In other words, Wedding Day minus 2. On Thursday, some of us went over to the Thylanders to get acquainted and to help with some wedding preparations. A most pressing issue was the seating chart for the dinner/reception following the wedding.

Sebbe and Emily discuss the seating arrangements.

Felix looks on as discussions continue.

The mothers have their lists out. From left: Lina Andersson (maid of honor), Samuel Thylander (brother of the groom), Anneli Thylander (mother of the groom), Linda Persson (girlfriend of the best man), Ann Turner (mother of the bride).

Enjoying the shade: Ketil, Mom, Jan Thylander (father of the groom).

Felicia, sister of the groom, was in the kitchen working on the wedding cake. She made a marvelous multi-tiered cake with fillings and marzipan topping.

That night, relatives on both sides went out to dinner at Lammet och Grisen (literally, The Lamb and The Pig). This well-known local restaurant features all-you-can-eat carveries, with abundant side dishes. The evening winds down with a classic Swedish sing-along, and the bridal couple was honored with a song and a solo dance.
