  • Mama planned it all
    Said it's pretty in the fall
    And the flowers would be
    Roses and daisies
    And she prayed nobody saw
    The weight that I put on
    The bride shouldn't be
    Four months and three weeks

    Daddy's pride and joy
    Is marrying some boy
    And he looked afraid
    The preacher turned the page
    And I was wearing beige
    Nowhere Baptist church
    Wrinkles in his shirt
    No ones having a ball
    At the reception hall

    And we didn't take no honeymoon
    With what we've got ourselves into
    A quick I do
    Then back home again

    Daddy's pride and joy
    Is marrying some boy
    Now everyone in this place
    Knows I didn't wait
    'Cause I was wearing beige
    I was wearing beige Writer/s: ASHLEY MONROE, MIRANDA LAMBERT
