  1. WHO says you don’t get a do-over?? That same wedding industry? Pardon my French, but FUCK ‘EM! 🙂

    Have another party in six months… a year, two years, whatevs… “hey we’re celerating our marriage… again. don’t bring gifts, just yourself and be prepared to ROCK OUT with your, uhm, guitar… out!” have a Wii bowling party at one of those big-screen mini-theatre rental places and if something didn’t go right the first time, do it that time.

    but then again, that’s just me…


  2. Just wanted to say Congratulations to you and to say that there is nothing wrong with getting totally consumed with your own wedding. Its a very exciting thing to happen to you so why the hell shouldn’t you be giddy and excited. Have fun!

  3. In my (also singular) experience, all the stuff that goes wrong — and some will — doesn’t lead to hindsight over-analysis. It just makes some good stories.

    In our case, one of our bridal attendants literally got a bee in her bonnet (we were outside next to Deer Lake), and also because of the location, my wife’s dress got some green goose-poop stains on it. (Guilty secret: they’re still there.) We also decided to drive our own car back to the reception party at our house, rather than the nicer vehicle our relatives had decorated up for us.

    Even immediately afterwards, we just laughed about all that. I think you’ll be so happy and relieved none of the niggly problems will matter.

  4. There’s nothing more worrying than a bride-to-be who ISN’T all-consumed and thoroughly thrilled about her wedding, IMHO. So go ahead, blog about it to your heart’s content, and if that isn’t enough you can MSN me too. I will indulge all your giddy bride blatherings – it’s my pleasure. 😀

  5. One of my friends has been married on paper for a year, but hasn’t had the ceremony yet. She’s getting married the week after you. All I hear from her is complaints about how irritating it is to have to pose for the wedding photos (done several weeks before the wedding here), arrange the buffet dinner, and how come she has to get dressed up at all… She’s not an enthusiastic bride. I guess since she’s already been married for a year, it’s not the same. She’s just doing the ceremony because her in-laws want the chance to invite their friends.

    I’m glad to hear you’re bubblingly happy about it. It’s really nice and refreshing. I can’t wait to see you!

  6. mark: true dat. many many parties will follow this one. Lots of chance for mini do-overs.

    April: Thanks! And (it took me a while to realize, but) I am having fun!

    Derek: you’re probably right – none of the tiny things that end up differently than I expected will actually matter in the end – and some of them may actually make the day better.

    Sue: careful what you commit to – I’m a woman possessed these days!

    Hannah: Can’t wait to see you either! We’re so excited!
