- Wedding: October 2013
My stress levels are slowly going down, which is good, since I’m getting married in less than a week (!!!)
FI continues to be wonderful and demonstrate his wonderfulness in a variety of ways, including making me breakfast, and wearing his hat in a funny way all morning to cheer me up.
Since my last ridiculously long post…
My older sister – who had not bought her tickets for our destination wedding with 2 months to go – is coming. It turns out that she saved no money (at all) to come, and will only be able to make it because my brother bought her ticket. None of her family is coming.
That brother, having paid for my sister’s ticket, has no money, and is only coming because a friend is paying for his ticket (amazingly, my friend, who is pretty much one of my brothers, is still coming, and I get to meet his wife 🙂
My younger sister, who was “definitely coming” and randomly invited her boyfriend is now not coming (something about her boyfriend nearly running over a cop and side-swiping a firetruck, having no insurance and now charged with wreckless driving :S ).
One of my other brothers basically told me that he doesn’t have the money, so unless my parents are paying for him, he’s not going (he’s 23), so he’s not coming.
Another brother, who basically left it until about a month before the wedding to try to save any money, to his credit, has been trying really hard since to get all the hours he can at work. I found out a few minutes ago that he can’t make it either.
Other than my family being insane, though, and the ridiculous amount of wedding cakes we’re having, which I seemingly have no say in, everything else is going great. We pick up our wedding rings tomorrow. I got my E-ring a few weeks ago and it’s gorgeous!
I’m actually starting to get excited about the wedding now (I’ve always been excited about the marriage), which is a really nice feeling.
