Videographer: not in the budget
photos: recruiting sisters in law to play photographer. Paying for photos isn’t in the budget
Waiting too long for food: Verdict’s still out on whether we’ll have any booze, so no worries about people getting drunk. But I do want bread & dipping oil on all the tables, so there will be food waiting.
Our song: we don’t have one.
Open bar: Still not sure if we’re having booze.
Hotel: I’m trying to insist on this one. I want it to be a special night, not just going back home.
Family photos: Definitely going to insist. Of all of us kids, mine will be the only wedding where everyone is there. Our last “family portrait” was at mom’s funeral. So by golly, the meatheads are going to suck it up and pretend to like each other.
Toned arms: really???? THIS is what I should worry about? I’m not even going to try and diet, because if I don’t meet my goal I’ll feel miserable, and I’m not ruining my day worrying about what I didn’t do.
Time alone: Definitely!
Oil blotters: I need these on a good day. With all that crap on my face, I’ll be able to lube a semi.
Reception dress: I paid good money for my gown, & I’m gonna enjoy it! Besides, I’ve heard you can get room upgrades if you check in wearing your wedding clothes.
Shoes: Houston, we have a problem! My guy is a heel ogler, and the only thing he’s asking for is heels. I’ve told him I’d compromise and wear heels for the ceremony and wedges or flats for the reception.
So, 3 possibly 4 out of 12. Guess I’ll be regretting a lot.
