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.  


ugh!

  1. We did our reception in my in-laws backyard and it was wonderful. No worries about being in and out at a certain time, or whether or not we could have alcohol, or whatever. We put up a small tent and a bunch of tables not under tents and got our caterer to cook on grills on the back patio. It was great. So I am definitely a big fan of the do-it-yourself backyard reception. Good luck!

  2. I just worry that it will be too ridiculous hot. Or will rain and be ridiculous hot and it'll just be awful.
