Wedding on the horizon...
Yeppers, that's right :-) On February 29, 2012, my man and I decided to make it official...next year :-) Woo - Hoo!! *rubbing my hands together* I can't wait!!!!!!!!
So that means planning, planning planning. We're tossing two dates around because it's so hot here in Florida and we want an outdoor ceremony, but we don't want to sweat to death or our guests, boy that would be stinky :-)
Besides already knowing it's going to be a small and intimate ceremony and reception, that means the dreaded...'cutting people from the list'...damn I hate that and I know some family and friends may be upset or take it the wrong way and I'm sorry for that!! But, the most people we want there is 18-20. That equals only immediate family on both sides. You know, moms, dads, brothers & their families, grandma's.
Venue shopping isn't as easy as it looks either. We want a metro area, away from our quiet little town life so our guests can enjoy themselves when not in the midst of wedding stuff, like Disney :-) hey this may be their only vacation time of the year, so we want to make sure they'd be plenty of other things to do around the area. but....there's that dang but again. We have our newest little family member "Elvis" a ten pound miniature dachshund. Most hotels & B&B's will not accept small pets. I know, *sigh* I've looked. Now the cat on the other hand will be just fine as long as there's food in her bowl and someone checks her every couple of days.
Then there's the list of "do not's" that the groom wants. Actually it's not so bad :-) I don't want pink either, Hahahaha, but he's a regular meat and potatoes southern man. He doesn't want shrimp on a stick. He wants burgers and steak and a meal that will fill him up so he doesn't have to stop at McDonald's on the way to the room. Ya know what I mean. So the search goes on. We still have time...WELL...unless the world ends on December 21, 2012. *Grumbling* ( I knew I should have listened to my grandma and set the date for this June.) LOL.
*BIG GRINS & HUGS*
Have a great day all!!!!
