- Wedding: October 2013
Tomorrow it’s October- EEEEEEEEEE!!!
We’ve spent a lot of time talking about our wedding day (and rightfully so!) but I want to hear about your other wedding related events. Anything you are particularly excited about? (“all of it” is an acceptable answer, by the way). Are you having a Rehearsal dinner? Sunday brunch/gift opening? Anything else?
I’ll go first: My FH is 2nd generation German, so we are having a German themed “welcome party” on Thursday (NEXT Thursday… omg….. ). It will be at our local German beer hall, and it will be SUPER casual. ½ priced beer, a few apps, and maybe some polka- we’ll see where the night takes us! Many people will also be wearing tracht (traditional German garb). So there’s that too :-p.
The rehearsal dinner is at one of our favorite restaurants. We just had our final meeting with them and my FILs yesterday. I think it’s going to be really fun and the food will be awesome, so I am especially excited about this event. I have always liked rehearsal dinners I have been to because it’s a smaller group and it’s the most important family and friends, so it means a lot.
Sunday brunch was one of those things that went in the “F-it pile” [see other thread]… sort of. My mom had this idea that it was going to be a more “planned” event, with a special reserved room at a restaurant, invites, the whole 9 yards. While we are still having a brunch the next day, it will be much more casual. It will probably be a smaller group and will just be a relaxing meal with family and bridal party. more of a “hey, we are going to _____ for brunch, stop by and say hi and eat with us if you would like” word of mouth invite. I’m very happy with this decision.
Then, those that would like to (probably just our parents), will come over to our apartment for an informal gift opening. Then we leave Monday for our honeymoon! *phew* it makes me a little tired thinking about it, but I’m really happy we’re making the most of the weekend!
