Just Kidding, Still October 16

May 13, 2010

October 2 and the last weekend of September are all booked!!  Wow, what luck that I even got a date in that month.  I’m not going to push my luck by changing anything else.  Mailing the reservation check out TOMORROW MORNING.  Too bad for my dad, he’ll just have to take an extra long vacay in October.

Address list is 1/3 done.  My mom is assigned to do the list of our family and friends.  H2B has a list he made for graduation invitations last year that he will send to me this weekend.  To think, I made fun of him for sending out a gazillion invites at the time and I am ever so grateful now!

The current count of our friends and H2B’s side of the family/friends is 125.  Then add my side of family/friends of probably 50 = 175.  Then add H2B’s future coworkers and Army people will probably put us over 200.  Factoring in an average RSVP of 65% we will be just right to not overflow a room for 150.

By the way, I probably didn’t mention one of my top reasons for wanting a military wedding.  The arch of sabers makes for a one-of-a-kind kodac moment.

A group of 6-8 officers on either side form the Honor Guard.  The archway represents a safe passage to married life.

Oh, did I mention I get to cut the cake with a sword?  Just stay out of my way!

    maybe you should have sparkling cider or apple juice instead of champagne if you’re going to have to handle a sword, lol. =)
