Well, in a little over 6 months, it’ll be Mr. & Mrs. Alex Fleming. I know we’re not the first but that’s big!
I swear by to-do lists and so I gathered some together to get an idea of where we should be up to by now and more importantly, what we might have forgotten. It was quite satisfying to see that we’re pretty much on track. There are a few things we haven’t done yet which we should have by now according to this list but we have already ticked off some of the up-coming stuff. So it balances out quite nicely.
I started reading up on wedding traditions and related folklore. I saw one about doing very weird stuff with lozenges. I’ll leave the possibilities up to your imagination. Suffice to say at that point, I stopped reading.
Last weekend, we both independently chose the same set of vows. It’s surprising how much of a boost little things like that can give. Some things we expected to be easy haven’t always been while other seemingly more difficult stuff just fell into place.
The florist is happy to put together buttonholes with heather and white flowers. This was one of the things given more prominence than it really deserved.
I spent a whole day researching and booking flights and the first few nights of the honeymoon. I found that Expedia do not always quote the cheapest price or the most direct flight. We booked direct with both the airline (for the most direct flights) and the hotel (because it was much cheaper). My credit card got such a shock I haven’t dared use it since.
All in all, a very productive holiday season.
