My MOM found the veil on the website of the store in the first paragraph of 1, and she said it showed no signs of discontinuation, so I just attempted to order it online, and voila. It's here. I wore it at work today to give people the giggles and lighten the mood. My mom says I should wear it to work every day after the wedding. Thoughts? Agree? Disagree?
All of this is a lesson in persistence, which my fiancee is always trying to pound into me. With words. He doesn't hit me.
2- I have been driving around for nearly a week with a box of ornament hangers in my car. I ordered them online thinking they were silver and they showed up BRASS. Gross. Well, interestingly the DESCRIPTION mentions that they are brass, but I am getting married so am I really expected to notice this stuff?
I am returning them for some black ones (I think...?) and I filled out the nifty little exchange form and placed it in the box, but somehow the box has been riding dirty with me all week in the passenger seat of the car with no A/C, and it's no closer to getting returned. Help! I might just order more online, not fool around with returns, and give everyone a BRASS ornament hanger for Xmas 2012. Best idea ever!
3- How many people pay attention to wedding programs? Do you ever keep the programs? This is really important for me to know, because I'm about to start thinking about how much effort to put into these, what content to include, whether or not to make enough for each guest or just make people share. Etc. Classy, I know.
4- What things ended up mattering the most in YOUR wedding? What do you still remember, from that blur of a day? What things seemed important beforehand, and ended up not mattering? I really want to know. We are down to the wire, and I would love recommendations for things to just SKIP altogether.
5- I am really looking forward to getting married! I just want to be married to my beloved. All this hoopla is funny to me.
6- Traditional vows vs. Writing Your Own vows? Why?
7- What songs do you consider ESSENTIAL wedding reception songs? Not necessarily for dancing, because we're still on the fence, but for background music. I am working up a playlist. English and Spanish suggestions encouraged.
I leave you with a song that I remembered lastnight that certainly canNOT be left out, as well as a photo of our awesomeness. But first, for more and better Quick Takes, check out Jen, the Mother of the Quickness.
