I’m good with that! I was hoping to keep it at right around 200 people. Now if I could just get the seating chart done….

@Jaynee: Actually “our” dress has been giving me some grief! There was some wrinkling in the front panel that wouldn’t come out with it being pressed, so we’re having to make some emergency tweeks, and I basically had to switch seamstresses so I could get it done in Oregon, because there just wasn’t any time left to do it in NYC. And we thought the seamstress here was a little nutty. So that wasn’t helping either!

@bRooklynRocks: I wish I had asked first for sure! I didn’t think everyone would be able to come, but I am SHOCKED at how many people aren’t coming, even from places like California. I’m not surprised about my “casual” NYC friends not wanting to spend that much money, but there are some real true blue friends who RSVP’d no that we’re having to deal with. And it just sucks!!!!!

@hibiscusgirl: Thank you! You’re so sweet. I know it’s true but it’s a bummer nonetheless.


If nothing else, we kind of blame ourselves for moving so much. We have so many friends spread out, it would have happened no matter where we got married! Of course, if we hadn’t moved around so much, we never would have met because we met in NY! C’est la vie.

More than half way there but only 10 more days to go until deadline. They better start flowing in! Getting more nervous about having to track people down.

@MissKatelyn:I know, right? Same issue–we’ve lived so many places now and none of any of our families are in the same place either. And airfare is so expensive right now, a lot of people just can’t make it work.

We have our final numbers at last! I had to track a few people down. We’ve also had a few people this week call to tell us they won’t be able to make it, although they had replied yes. All in all, I’m happy with 125, seems like a good number!
