I am going to try to do NaBloPoMo this month. Yes, it is a bit crazy for me to say I want to blog every day when i've barely been writing in here at all. I do miss it though and miss the reading that went along with it. So i am going to take a stab at making 30 (well, 28 after this one) posts in a row this month. The theme is "Jump"; not sure how many posts i'll make along the topic.
So, to the wedding bitching! :)
Date is July 21. set. period. My dad gave me 3 weekends he was available this summer and that was the only one that didn't conflict with niece/nephew in NYC's school schedule or the best man's math conference. My future sis-in-law has gotten a house to stay in, as has my parents and brother's family. People have plane tickets!
I still don't know where it is going to be!
We are having a small wedding. My guest list right now is 32 people, plus another dozen that may/may not come. You would think it wouldn't be hard to find a place for 34 people (gotta count me and B!) to have a bit of dancing and food and drinks in some air conditioning without being crazy expensive. It is though. The problem is even the smallest places i've found hold a minimum of about 100 people. So they are priced for 100 people. Now, if i was calling around 2 weeks before the date i might find someone to cut me a discount then but that is not what i want to do at all. Then i also keep running into the issue of "no alcohol". Seriously? or your decent cost for the rental only covers 4 hours. yeah, um, not enough time to decorate, have a reception, and clean up. My Best Woman has been awesome and made us some amazing invitations but i need to give her a place to add in so we can send the darn things!
So, i've got a couple calls to make Monday, if those don't pan out then seems like we've got a coin flip: move the time to like 5, rent a tent and everything and have it in the Best Woman's backyard or break out the credit card and rent the Vandy room.
