VW camper van memories
VW in wedding
Because one VW wasn't enough, we borrowed my cousin's bus as well. He was so in love with my parents '76 mustard yellow bus, as soon as he could find one for sale, my cousin bought a matching one to bring into the family.
On the day of the wedding, three bridesmaids and I loaded up into one bus and three bridesmaids and two flower girls loaded up in the other. Both buses got us to the wedding, but not without some...hiccups.
The bus I was in started up right away, no problems. The problem came when we went to shut the door; it fell off. My dad, in his tux, hurried over and put it back on the tracks and tried to close it again. Again it fell off. He put it back on again, and then I, who was the passenger in the front seat and in my wedding dress, reached behind and grabbed the handle and held the door somewhat closed for the 20 minutes it took to get to the reception site.
In the other bus, the door shut fine and we all gave a cheer. Then it wouldn't start. The engine wouldn't turn. So my sister jumped back out, in her fancy bridesmaid dress, and together with my cousin (who was also dressed up) got out and push started the car. Then, while it was slowly rolling along, ran and jumped back in.
All told, the entire wedding party made it to the wedding on time and in style.
