The one where I mostly talk about a wedding that isn’t mine!

I know, I owe you all kinds of updates!  And considering that my hours at work were recently cut, one would think that I since I had Monday off, I’d have had time to write lots of blog posts and update everyone.  Right?  Wrong.  Instead, I took the cats to the vet, played with my adorable nephew, worked on my wedding program on my laptop while sitting on the porch and other sundry things.  In other words, not blogging. 
Last weekend, CP and I went to the wedding of a college friend of ours.  It was held on the beach in a town about 7 hours from where I live and 4 hours from CP.  So I took Friday off, we stayed in the hotel where the wedding and reception were to be held and CP and I enjoyed the weekend.  We mostly walked everywhere from the hotel- to nearby restaurants to eat, etc. And it rained all day Saturday.  We kept thinking it would clear up, but not until the ceremony was over.  They moved it indoors.  CP and I met up with some people that we (mostly him) knew from college days and sat with them during the reception.  We also sat with the groom’s grandparents and cousins.  We never actually met the bride during the reception- there was no receiving line, she didn’t go around to all the tables with the groom to greet the guests.  I was really disappointed- after all when I thought about it, between the two of us traveling, the hotel for 2 nights, the gift I sent ahead of time, the meals we ate out- the weekend had cost us $1000.  And we didn’t meet the bride!  So of course, CP and I have discussed this- there will be none of this at our wedding.  We will speak to everyone at some point.  According to our friend the groom, they are planning to come to our wedding.  So I guess I’ll meet her then.  And really, other than the realization about the bride, we had an awesome time at the reception- we danced and had a great time. 
I ordered our invitations yesterday- by the time I pay for all the postage, the total for the invites will be more than my wedding dress.  Scary isn’t it?  (I’m trying not to think about that.)  I’ve also gotten in the hurricane glass lamp for our unity candle, the glass taper holders for our individual candles and an address embosser.  I’m in the midst of creating shower invitation lists and working on the florist.  Phew.  I’m tired just thinking about it.

  1. I know that weddings are hectic for the bride and groom, but I think it’s a MUST to greet all the guests! That’s why receiving lines–while they can be annoying–make sense!

    So much wedding progress! Yay!
