I need a little vent

Our wedding is on July 3. In about 48 days.

All of our invitations have been sent out and we are starting to receive some wonderful RSVP's. We made an effort when we did our invitations to make sure that all the adults received separate invitations, even if they lived under the same roof, and that the 5 children we are inviting received their own invitations. I used to hate being lumped into an entity with my brother when we shared a house, and I still remember the excitement of being 6 and getting my own mail. I'm getting a tad irate though - first my father told me that I shouldn't have bothered sending my small sister her own invitation as it was too expensive. Today the best man asked why he was invited, and told us that we should not have bothered to separately invite his children and his parents. Aaaaaargh. Total extra cost was less than $5, and if someone is worth inviting to our wedding, it is worth inviting them properly. I've just been flabbergasted by the rudeness - why on earth must they complain. We could always uninvite them. I guess if this is the worst I have to complain about, life isn't too bad.

On the plus side, the cake is going to be delicious. Raspberry chocolate. Yum. Yum. Yum. We tasted it on Saturday and fell in love with an inanimate object. All our paperwork is done. Our premartial counselling is all booked in. I always said that I wouldn't get married without it, and I'm not.

And my dress is beautiful. I feel so comfortable, and yet like a princess in it.

The countdown is on ...

All in all, it does sound great. Though I agree, why the heck can people be bothered to complain? It´s your wedding = you decide anyway...

What an exciting time! Well, there are always those minor irritations, too, but I'm a firm believer in this pre-wedding motto (which applies to life in general as well) - you can't please everyone so you may as well please yourself! (I think your separate invitations sounds like a lovely idea)

Now, the dress that is princessy ..... might you consider a photo on your blog, perhaps with your face turned or obscured if you wish to remain anonymous? Because I would LOVE to see your dress. I remember reading your blog back when you weren't yet together with your fiance, and it's so exciting that you two are going to get hitched!!

BTW, just got back from a weekend away, sans children, to celebrate 11 years married to Fatty. (And we still are crazy for each other!)
