LOL, well... this made me laugh. You first had me thinking the bride was at 255... and I was thinking she might have trouble with that dress. ;)
Having just done the wedding thing with my daughter and having the exact opposite problem... the smallest wedding dress is a size zero... can you believe I had to pay nearly $1000 in alterations to get it to fit her? WHAT? lol
Yeah, she's a DOUBLE zero! (of all things to take after her mother!) lol

ah well... nicely done on the etheree, and that's one boozing gal... nice posture, but GREAT etheree. ;) You took a form which I'm not a huge fan of, and made me laugh. ;)
(not easily done) I appreciate that.
I guess they've already had this contest, so to wish you luck would be a bit late, but I liked it, for whatever that's worth? ;)
well done!
Nice to 'see' you Jay!
Cat

    Hey, Cat. Sorry I'm so late in thanking you. I got an unbelievable number of reviews for this one, on top of my Trining Chapter. It was hard to catch up. I'm glad you enjoyed this bit of fluff.

Kind of sad. Poor June. nothing worse than your wedding dress being too small. And the little cocktail in the picture isn't helping with the weight. LOL. This was a fun poem. And sad too.
hugs Heidi

Hi Mr Jay!

This one made me wince and laugh aloud at the same time. I had to look up what this style of poetry was, since I'd never heard of it. Looks like a fun challenge for free verse!

This is a really good contest entry. Sort of funny and awful at the same time. Sorta makes me wonder what kind of wedding June would actually have...

Fun!
Sissy

is still en route,To arrive today (period after 'route', or if you like the comma, lower case the 'T' in 'To'.)

    Hey, Sissy, thanks for reading. Yeah, that should have been lower case. Originally, I had everything but the articles in upper case. I have no idea why. Someone told me it didn't flow that way, and I agreed, so I started lower-casing things, but apparently forgot that one.

This is a fun etheree poem that paints a vivid picture of an overweight bride worried that her mail-ordered gown will not fit on her wedding day. I paid more attention to the message and humor of your poem than to its cascading structure which is direct. Thank you for sharing, Jay, I wish you success in the contest.

Jay,
An all to real look at a pointless waste of money and time.
Neither Mary or I can really understand this out dated ritual.
This is money wasted, that would make a great down payment
on a house or furniture. I guess I've made enough friends
for now. Good job.

    Couldn't agree with you more, Ward. LOL, you and Mary have good heads on your collective shoulders.

I was looking for your story the other day. I have gotten into the habit of just straight deleting everything in my inbox. I couldn't tell you if this an etheree poem or not, the blind leading the deaf. What is is funny. Thanks for the laugh. The best to you as always.

Take care,
Russell

    Many thanks, Russell. Glad you got a kick out of it. Enough people have told me I got the syllable count right. Everything else guesswork.

This bride in the photo seems well-prepared for rain (with her willies) or celebrations/commiserations (with the vodka), Jay.

Maybe she's celebrating as it's dry and sunny after all, and the groom dropped dead before the wedding, but the rich ole git still left her everything in his Will. haha.

This is a fun write, but with respect, some lines seem falsely broken to meet the syllable count, and don't 'stand alone'.

Cheers, Ray.

    Thanks for the kind words and the direction for improvement. EVERYTHING I did was for syllable count. LOL.

Funny! June's planning didn't work out too well. Maybe she didn't do much planning at all. Maybe she really doesn't want to get married after all? Certainly calls attention to all the fuss and expense that goes into most weddings. Excellent attention to the Etheree format, and excellent build-up to your last line. I predict the show will go on, one way or another. Maybe they'll elope. Great contest entry. judi

    Thank you, Judi. I don't know about all the finer points of the Etheree format. It was fun to right. That was good to me.

    You're very welcome. I'd never seen much poetry from you! Interesting subject. judi

This is an excellent contest entry. The photo adds credence to this poem. Looks like the mail delivery is causing some anxiety.

I want to wish you good luck in this contest. Have a great day,,,,Jim
