- Wedding: August 2011
Our wedding is currently set for August 6th, in Colorado where we live. It’s a gorgeous site in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. I’m excited, the Mr. is excited, our friends and family are excited. It was going to be one awesome party.
Here comes the wrench.
The Mr. is a masters student in electrical engineering, and is in Boulder this week at some nerd-conference. He presented his project yesterday afternoon (something with NASA and ubber cool, though I don’t know what any of it is all about cuz I’m no nerd). This was his first conference presentation, and his professor (aka boss) was super impressed with how well he presented. The professor wants the Mr. to speak at more conferences. He told him specifically one in Japan. In August. HOLD ON A MINUTE!! WAAAAAIIIITTT!! August is when we are getting married!! Talked to my love this morning, and he confirmed that it is August 1-5th!!!! Our wedding is slatted for the 6th. Half a world away from Japan. He has to submit a paper by tomorrow, and won’t find out if he’s selected to talk until March. Oh joy. There’s no way in hell that he can get back from Japan in less than one day, even if he could he’d be jet-lagged. Plus, there’s no point of him going to Asia for a week, to come home for a few days, just to fly back to Asia for our honeymoon. I would also want to go to Japan, so I’d go with him to the conference. The best thing is that his flight to Asia and back would be paid for, as well as his hotel and food for the week. We would just stay in Japan for a week, and continue on to whatever part of Asia for the next 3 weeks. Dude. What is a girl to do.
I emailed our venue this am (haven’t heard back) to see if we can do the wedding in July, so we’d be able to leave for Japan in August and then start our honeymoon. I’m totally set on getting married on August 6th…it’s been “my date” for a few months now. So, maybe our family could fly out for the 6th, and then do a reception in September when we get back??!!?? I’m also kind of set on my mountain wedding celebration/wedding/party. SOOOO torn!!!
What would you do? Any superb ideas?
