The wedding rings are ordered. The look of glee on the jeweller’s face when we went back to Fattorini’s! She must be on some kind of commission. They’ll take a few weeks to be made. Then a quick check to make sure they fit before being inscribed. What with, we’re not sure yet.
I have no idea what’s being organised for the stag do. It’s all gone suspiciously quiet in my inbox.
Quite a few RSVPs are still outstanding even after the requested date. If you do get a wedding invite, please, on behalf of your hosts, return the RSVP as soon as you can and definitely before the requested date. It’s a slow torture coming home each evening to 1 or 2 replies, sometimes none for days.
Apparently “Thanks for coming – you’ve been a right laugh!” is not enough as a groom’s speech so I’ve done some reading and prep. work. The good news for me (and probably for everyone else too) is that it’s expected to be fairly short – about 5 mins. – and the structure is prescribed:
- thank everyone for coming and playing their part;
- say a few words about getting wed; &
- introduce the best man.
Easy! Even I can manage that I think. I’ll post my speech’s framework after the big day.
The most exciting thing that’s happened recently for me is booking accommodation and a hire car for the honeymoon. I’d opt for putting together a bespoke holiday any day over a travel agent’s package so we’re really looking forward to that.
