More Readings

In the course of searching for readings and scripts for our wedding ceremony, we came across a few selections that we considered including in the program but ended up leaving out to keep the ceremony fairly brief. I'd still like to share them, though, so I've posted them below.

Dearly Beloved...

We did it!

And it couldn't have been a happier, more beautiful day. Sure, there were hiccups (because there are always hiccups), but everything worked out fine and we had a wonderful time. We hope that those of you who were able to join us had a good time, too -- and thank you so much for sharing this day with us.

We do plan to write here about our experiences that day, post photos and recap our honeymoon. But we've been going pretty much non-stop since we got back, so that'll have to wait a little bit longer until things calm down. (Then again, we have a holiday weekend coming up, which will be great catch-up time.)

Speaking of photos -- We've started a private group on the photo-sharing Web site Flickr to allow folks to view/share photos from the wedding. If you want to join, let us know and we'll invite you to the group!

Meanwhile, if you're interested, you can read the ceremony script, which is a fine mishmash of language and sentiments inspired by or stolen from other scripts we found on the Internet.

The Day

It's here!

And I know it's going to go by in a blurry-eyed flash.

First things first: Breakfast. Then appointments at the salon. Then take care of some last minute-details, head over to the house, take photos.

And then the main event.

The Home Stretch

While we've been in wedding planning mode since October, getting things together for the wedding has largely been a piecemeal thing, with little spurts of expended time and money here and there as self-imposed deadlines came due. Today was the first day of sustained "all wedding, all the time" activity, and it's not going to end until probably Sunday.

Still so much left to do. All the big things are taken care of, but there are little things -- such as printing/folding programs, assembling bouquets and the small matter of writing vows -- that still must be tackled.

This evening we had the official "meeting of the parents." Rob and I had been stressing over it for a while, but it actually went really well.

Not Dead Yet

Conditions have been such that I'm really too busy to blog right now. It's been fairly busy at work lately, on top of needing to wrap some things up before checking out for two and a half weeks. Plus, a couple small freelance projects came up -- certainly not unwelcome income at a time like this, but time commitments all the same. And, of course, there's the wedding.

Whenever I need a minor panic attack, all I have to do is check the countdown graphic on Annie's blog. (She and her fiance Dan are getting married the same day as Rob and I.) Right now it's saying "6 days until our wedding." Yipes!

In all honesty, though, things are going pretty well in the wedding planning department. Everything big is taken care of now, and we've been steadily whittling down the list of small tasks. My mom's arriving tomorrow evening, which should be a great help: She'll be able to take care of some things on Tuesday and Wednesday while I'm still at work, and she can help me with final errands on Thursday before everyone else arrives. (Plus, my mom and I get along pretty well anyway, so it'll be nice just to spend some time with her before this weekend's craziness hits full-force.)

Six days and counting. Whew. I'm getting tired of all this planning and talking about planning. Can the day just get here already? Because I'm so ready.
