Summer Wedding

Summer Wedding

Jun 23 2021

Intro

Hi Friends!
Labor Day happens every year on the first Monday in September. It is a holiday dedicated to the American workers who have contributed to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. Many people use the three-day holiday weekend to travel and visit family and friends. It’s also a common weekend for marriages.
Beth is planning on attending a Labor Day weekend wedding. Listen in to her conversation with Miguel to hear all about it.

Dialogue

Miguel: Hey Beth, you have any big Labor Day weekend plans?
Beth: I do. I’m going to a wedding in wine country, so I’ll probably be outdoors all day, or, all weekend.
Miguel: Wine country, California? Or wine country, Oregon?
Beth: Wine country, Oregon. And, uh, it should be pretty cool. I think it’s going to be in a place that overlooks all these orchards and the vineyards, and it should be pretty awesome.
Miguel: Is it a family wedding, or a friend, or who’s getting married?
Beth: A friend. It’s, uh, someone that I’ve met since I’ve lived here and she is really fun, so I think it’s going to be a great crowd at her wedding.
Miguel: So you think it’ll be a party crowd, like people’ll be dancing and really, you know, whooping it up, having fun?
Beth: Oh yeah, especially with all the wind and the, uh, wedding celebration should be a blast.

Discussion

Beth sounds pretty excited about going to her friend’s wedding. Vineyards are beautiful places to have weddings, especially during the summer. Many people choose to have their weddings at vineyards because of the romantic setting and beautiful scenery.
I’m not going to any Labor Day weddings this year, but I did last year, and I am going to a wedding next weekend. For some reason, Labor Day seems to be one of the most popular times of the year to get married.
Have a great week!
