"Hey, Best Man, look how sharp you are," said Thomas the Tree Kangaroo, jumping to the next branch to make room before the mirror.
"I believe you," said Iago the Iguana, his eyes shut and sweat pouring down his brow. His nerves were frayed from being high up on the tree branch and not from being confined in a powder blue morning suit tailcoat, blue violet vest, and a powder blue top hat.
"If it weren't for the vest, Iago would be completely powder blue," said Charlie the Camel from the ground. All of Thomas' grooms animals laughed, including Iago.
"Eh, mate, you going to be okay?" asked Thomas, looking at himself in the mirror again. Bubba Byrd perched on his shoulder while Ghandi the Giraffe hovered behind them.
Iago opened one eye and glanced around at his friends. "We do look good in these wedding clothes." Filemon the Flying Squirrel and Thomas did a high five.
"Iago, remember to give Guy A. Gator his tailcoat, vest, and top hat on the day of the wedding," said Ghandi. "Otherwise, they'll be all muddy and crumbled."
"Yeah," agreed Thomas. "Same with Dicky and Danny Daffodil. Their hats and clothes are waterproofed, but they have a way of tearing things. I want my deposit back."
"Dudes, Pauly's heading this way!" Charlie called as he ran to meet the pademelon.
"Thomas, you're best and better men are all accounted for," said Iago, shutting his eyes again. He paid no more mind to his friends as he imagined walking down the aisle with the maid of honor.
Thomas, the happy bridegroom, tap danced on the branch, twirled, and broke into a song, "I'm getting married in the morning. . ."
