Amanda (my fiancee) and I just did the preliminary guest list for the wedding. Just off the tops of our heads, without the people her parents will invite, we’re looking at…
251 names on the list.
Two hundred fifty-one people.
Granted, a lot of them will not come, or even RSVP. But, my sweet and fluffy lord, this is gonna hurt.
We also took a look around town, trying to find a good site for the wedding / reception. This is proving to be really problematic. Not only do we need to find a place big enough to house everyone, but it also has to accomodate our “vision” for the proceedings. (More on that as we get closer.) And we need to do this without breaking the bank.
Needless to say, the Gaylord Texan is RIGHT THE F**K OUT. (Even though there is a scenario where we could have it there, but it will have to be a real clandestine operation to get it there within budget. If you’ve seen Fandango, you have an idea of how this would go.)
We have a lot of the elements already in place — caterer, DJ, chocolate fountain, officiant — but we need to get the location nailed down soon. The wedding date is Sunday, May 27, 2007. Holiday weekend dates tend to fill up kinda quickly.
