In the whole “let’s plan a wedding” process, we’re not forgetting that the outcome of this planning is marriage, which should last a heck of a lot longer than the wedding + planning. So, tonight, we’re heading up to Marietta for Cobb County’s marital seminar/workshop, Focus on Forever. On the surface, we really like that it’s free, ostensibly skills-based, and fits in nicely with our schedule. Hopefully, nothing is a surprise tonight, but we gain new insight on the covered topics.
Pre-weekend update 21 May 2009
Plans are coming along nicely. Now that the big items are booked/mailed, we’ve got a million little things left to do, the biggest of which is planning the ceremony. We’re trying to find non-loveydovey, shortish, meaningful readings and vow ideas, but I can only read a couple a night before I either want to gag or get all weepy while reading them.
Any readings or vows you’ve heard that you really like?
Aware 18 May 2009
We’re aware that some of the invitations have not arrived due to a problem with some of the address rubbing off, making the envelopes undeliverable. We are collecting those invitations, re-packaging them (as the post office took the “undeliverable” status to mangle the envelope as much as they could. Luckily, we printed about a bajillion extra), and will be re-mailing them by the end of this week. I’m aware that the likelihood of a returned-envelope person reading this already is small, so if you’re just coming here and wondering why your invite seemed really late, please blame it on our printer’s ink, the thin letters of the font, and USPS.
I’m hoping that none get lost in Post Office Purgatory: undelivered and unreturned.
The tent for the patio is booked! Now, we’ll have protection from the elements (and fans for the heat), and a back-up location for the ceremony for if (when) it rains.
We are hoping that, by having a rainy-day location and replacing the windshield on our getaway vehicle (it leaks something awful now), we’ll prevent a downpour.
