- Wedding: August 2011
Mini vent : I was doing my save the dates and final guest list and it occured to me that I haven’t met 20% of my guest list. No idea who they are. My fiance knows them but not well.
To me, there were two big reasons to not elope and actually go through the hassel of a wedding. First of all, I wanted to stand in front of those I love and commit to my fiance for life and let them all know in a formal public way that we love each other and are in it together. Second of all, I wanted those we love there to witness it so that they support and help our marriage along the way. I miss the old idea of a guest list where you invited friends and family and neighbors to build a community around your marriage that will support you. I guess I just don’t imagine us calling up that 20% we barely know and saying “we could use to support today”
Sigh, so not what I wanted for my wedding. Oh well it is was it is.
