This wedding is turning into a BEAST. We ended up sending out many more invitations than we planned to....and it sounds like almost everyone that we invited is actually going to come! AAARRRGGG!!! (Just kidding....sort of...)
It started out with us thinking it would pretty much just be family and a few close friends. You know, 20-25 people. Well, it's now going to be double that...if not a bit more. The good news is that it's all people that we genuinely love; how can we complain about that?
David has been freaking out a little bit...so much for our "oh we'll just have my brother in law grill up some salmon". But, as I told him, he'll never look back, at the end of his life, and wish we hadn't had that awesome wedding. It's still going to be very small, considering.
And also? He should thank his lucky stars that I'm not the kind of girl who expects a wedding ring like this. "But honey", I asked, "how can you put a price on LOVE?" "Easy", he said. "I'm an accountant."
Last night he talked to his brother about officiating; Steve is a stand-up comedian and very comfortable before a crowd. They came up with some very fun ideas; let's just say this is going to be an unconventional wedding. It's going to be totally US. Be very afraid.
