I am back from my niece’s wedding>>> What a wonderful time! My sister (mother of the bride) sure worked her tail off! She decided to do the wedding herself, rather than hire a wedding planner, and let me tell you… weddings are now a big business! It’s amazing to me how many little details there are to take care of>>> from the little gift bags my sister left at the hotel to the gorgeous flower arrangements, hors d’oeuvres, main dinner course, location of the wedding, location of the reception, musicians for the wedding, wedding cake, photographer, monogrammed napkins, ETC. (I think that you can get the picture!)
My husband and I were married as an elopement thus saving loads of money and time. (We also managed to get the down payment for our first house in lieu of gifts.) I guess that we were just less romantic, more practical, and the fact that he was stationed in Panama at the time sort of ruled out a big wedding with lots of friends and family flying in… It’s one thing for people to go to another state for a wedding… but we drew the line at another country!
It’s good to be back home. I just thought that I would check in and say hello to any site readers who happen to catch the blog…
