For me, marriage is the most important step in my life. I always wanted to find a good partner to share my life with and make this commitment together.
His colleagues took us for a night out and gave us a good bottle of wine. My colleagues offered us a gift certificate to the spa. Nothing from our families or our friends. Not that we’d want gifts or anything, but maybe go for drinks to celebrate this huge step that we’re about to take?
It seems weird to me that the ones you think are the closest are actually less close than the ones you work with. Just a thought… I am sad about friends and family though. Most of them can’t come because it’s Destination Wedding, but they could still acknowledge that it happening, no?

You know, i get the impression this is very much an office thing. Our group is big on this kind of stuff, too. Whereas my friends think it’s all no biggee, totally normal, etc! Go out for birthdays, all taht kind of stuff. But i think it’s also a professional thing. We take our clients out all the time for sutff–why not our coworkers? It puts on a good air in the office of friendliness–it’s always a good thing I think!
I always make a poitn to take wine where appropriate (house warmings, etc). It amazes me how people don’t comnmonly do this nowadays. It’s a nice courtesy IMO =]. In fact, I invited my friend over for her 25th bday last year…and she was so touched she sent me a really long heartfelt email about how NICE it is for someone to make her a homemade bday dinner (i felt cheap MAKING dinner, not taking her out! i mean, really!) and she kept saying how none of her friends were doing anything, etc. Made her feel special. Stuff like this is SO important I think. Makes you feel all loved inside.
And YEAAAAH super close!!
