It was during that time that Metis realized something, he didn't have a best man for his wedding. He had been so caught up in everything else, he had forgotten that particular step, and it had caused him to realize that he had the perfect candidate for the job! Thus, he had asked his cousin, K'then, to be his best man and asked if Baroleth would like to be the "arch" underwhich the couple would stand while they said their vows. It was obvious that Lord Holder Tethis would perform the ceremony, the man was absolutely adamant that he be the one to wed his son and future daughter-in-law.
What was more, was that after all the fighting they had done, Jason had agreed to be the "entertainment." Of course, there was at least one other 'band' hired so as to allow the man a chance to mingle with friends and family should he so desire. Something that the harper wasn't certain would be fun, especially since he knew that K'then had never heard him sing... or play an instrument. Or at least he was fairly certain of that, for all he knew his cousin might have snuck in to hear him once or twice before. Either way, he was completely uncertain of the answer!
Things differed even further when Methis and Tracy decided they wanted to include Jadziath and Rakriketh in the ceremony as well. The two young dragons were informed that they would be the 'flower girl' and the 'ring bearer'... with the help of their riders, who would be in a bridesmaid and groomsmen.
The day of the wedding, A'lo and Artemis had gotten dressed up in their outfits (both of which were picked out by their future sister-in-law. Their dragons were forced into wearing little "outfits" or rather flower necklaces around their necks so and special little harnesses were placed on each.
~I don't like it, Artemis-mine, it itches,~
~I know, Jazz, but it's important and I promise we'll oil you again after everything is said and done. I know we just finished oiling you not that long ago,~ the girl responded as she finished setting her dragon up to be a flowergirl.
At the same time, a cushion was placed on Rik's back so that he could play ring bearer, and said cushion was securely harnessed to the beast's back. Although, the slightly larger hatchling was less vocal in his complaints, having already understood that he was an important part of the strange mating ceremony that humans had.
As things were getting set up and ready, Metis paced back and forth in his room. He was nervous, despite the fact that he was perfectly happy with his bride, he was still nervous about the whole thing. His youngest brother was in the room with him and frowned slightly. "What's wrong, Metis?" A'lo questioned, not sure if K'then was going to show up and help get the groom out there and ready.
Artemis was with Tracy, helping her and ever thankful for Silvara's teas. "How aare you doing, Tracy?"
"It's hard to believe that this day is here. I'm so nervous that something will go wrong. How about you?"
"I don't know where I would be without the teas that Silvara makes for me," the weyrling chuckled.
