Wedding Update

Cody and I booked our honeymoon cruise this weekend! We’ll be sailing south to Bermuda on the first cruise either of us has ever taken. Even though I’ll have only been there five months by the time August rolls around, 38 has been very kind in permitting me enough time off for the wedding and honeymoon, which is just one more reason why I look forward to going to work every day.

Wedding planning is proceeding apace. We have a lot left to do, but none of it feels daunting. From my perspective, the biggest thing left is a toss-up between decorations/flowers/centerpieces/etc. and invitation design. A lot of stuff fell into place on other fronts this weekend, freeing us from tackling some decisions. Specifically: Stonewall Farm now has a liquor license, so we can just do an open bar through them rather than figure out how to stock one ourselves; we now know what we’re doing for dessert and it’s eminently attainable; we know what we’re doing for wedding party favors; and, of course, the cruise.

Invitation design makes me wish I’d taken a few GD courses in college. Coming up with something that is both representative of us and that doesn’t also look cheap/designed by an amateur is…not easy. I keep on wanting to reach out to GD-trained friends, but I don’t want to burden them with something like this, either.

Ah well. It’ll sort itself out.
