Cheesy Music and Hiccups

So, the invitations have been sent out and the RSVPs are beginning to come back.  There’s an unspoken understanding between us that…

  1. neither of us rush to pick up the mail too quickly when we get in from work; &
  2. 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.

As an alternative, we’ve setup up a JustGiving page to raise charitable donations for Mountain Rescue England & Wales.

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.
