- Wedding: March 2012
So Mikes nephew and his parents live in Tennessee, the rest of the family is here in
Florida. Nephew is talking about getting married summer 2012, have not set a for sure date yet. He asked the fb on Christmas and so far we have heard 3 dates, and that the wedding will be in Tennessee. ALL the rest of the family les in South Florida.
Mike proposed to me 2 weeks ago, and we sat with a calendar that weekend and picked a date as we wanted to pick a month that no one else in the immediate family on either side has a birthday or anniversary that could interfere.
March was the month chosen as it is the only month that is empty. Works out well as I would love a spring wedding, green is my favorite color and it will be easy to pick up green items at Christmas time as well as last minute St. Patricks Day, wedding is a week later.
Anyway, after we set date with the venue Mike called his brother to ask him to be best man, and that the date is set. The venue is actually where our relationship started, so perfect for us.
I sent out facebook save the dates event yesterday and today received phone call from fsil telling me it is too soon to be sending invitations. I did advise that this is not official invitation but just a way to get it on the event calendar. Official save the dates will be mailed next month as I just ordered them today and it will take time for them to arrive. I have had a few say thank you for giving this much notice, as thy are out of town and want to make arrangements to come.
Then she went on to say that now that we are having our wedding where we are they will not be able to have a reception there for their son in July 2012 as it is at Mikes sisters neighborhood clubhouse, and residents can only rent it once a year.
Seems that although nephew is getting married in TN they also want to do a pseudo ceremony and reception down here as many in the family will not make the trip. The nearest decent hotels to them
are an hour away from their home which is where the wedding will be. Heck, last time we talked this second wedding was not planned or announced, they just called about getting the venue today.
Should I move my wedding from our perfect place, or tell them tough.
