I’m not southern hemisphere, but I am on your side of the world! It’s coming up on 8pm here πŸ™‚

what’s on your mind? How’s planning going?

I’m about 8 hours NE of Beijing πŸ™‚

Do you have a super organized not-super-close-friend or coworker you could ask to help you coordinate day of details? I can’t really afford a DOC, so I’m going to try and talk my old high school BFF into doing it for me, setting up stuff, running point on schedules, etc. I know her well enough to know how anal she’ll be (thus I won’t need to stress) and trust her since I’ve known her forEVER and she’ll know what would bother me and what wouldn’t, but at the same time we’ve drifted apart over the years, so it’s not like I’d ask her to be a Bridesmaid or Best Man or anything like that.

Else, how elaborate is your set up? Does the restaurant have someone who could do it for you? You could do a run through ahead of time with them to make sure they understand how you want everything to look!

girl, you’ve got like 11 more months to think about it πŸ™‚ before you NEED to get someone committed, haha.

I can’t wait til I have a venue booked ~ I feel like things will just feel so much more directed then!

There seems to be a time (around 7-8pm my time/5-6 am EST) where it is basically daydream and I and maybe a few others…. and then suddenly everyone appears! Then I go bed, and when I wake up there are a thousand new threads to deal with before I go off to work in the morning.  It’s interesting to see how time zones really play into posting trends.
