So, the invitations have been sent out and the RSVPs are beginning to come back. There’s an unspoken understanding between us that…
- neither of us rush to pick up the mail too quickly when we get in from work; &
- we each open half the replies that arrive back each day.
There was an unexpected hiccup at the Rendezvous Hotel. We made a block booking of rooms for people staying over. However, the hotel changed their computer system after I made the booking and now the reference number I put on the information sheet that’s gone out with the invites is useless. I’ll admit I gave them a bit of a hard time over that.
There’s an empty wedding list setup with House of Fraser. We can’t add anything to it until 3 months before. We moved in together over a year ago so many of the things traditionally bought as a wedding gift, we already have two of. However, there are a few items we would like to replace.
I did some digging on popular first dance songs and got too long a list far too quickly so I’m in the middle of culling the non-starters. I’ve made Vicky weep a couple of times when she’s heard a few of my first-cut choices. Nothing by Aerosmith, Shania Twain or Bryan Adams made that cut. Don’t get me wrong, I think they’re talented artists with some very powerful, emotive songs and I don’t mind them being played at the wedding; they’re just not going to be the first dance.
I’ve had a brand new, wing-collar shirt altered so that I don’t look like a short-armed gorilla on the day.
We’re getting there but I’ve still got a To-Do list as long as your arm. At the moment, for every item I cross off, I seem to add at least two more. I’m looking forward to the day when it starts to shrink again.
