Since The Benevolent Watcher has travel and language mods installed, Daisy and Ned take a few lessons in Tartosan before their wedding. Neither of them has any family and their friends are constantly calling to ask for advice, so they decide to opt for a simple City Hall ceremony and a honeymoon night in a lovely rental home. “Besides, I have a coworker who said his wedding was a nightmare. The officiant didn’t show up. Nobody sat down, and they couldn’t even cut the cake.” Daisy agrees it sounds really stressful and expensive. They apply for their wedding license, purchase plane tickets, and place a deposit on the rental home.
It’s the off season in Tartosa, and the couple pretty much has the town to themselves. Their flight in was cramped (typical economy class) but they aren’t affected for too long. They choose a bouquet of flowers–daisies of course. At the bridal shop, Daisy picks out a wedding dress, Ned chooses a tux, and then he suggests Daisy enjoy some spa time–hair and makeup, mani-pedi–while he takes in the sights. That afternoon, they meet up at the City Hall to head inside and say their vows. After they go inside, Ned realizes there’s no place to freshen up and put on his tux. He should have used some of his free time to change.
Maybe his pre-wedding jitters were more than he’d realized. He changes for a wedding photo. Sadly, the bakery was closed so they didn’t have a wedding cake. And he’d bought the most adorable cowplant cake topper, too. Oh well. At least it will be a nice souvenir.
