Since it’s been well over a month since Marnie last blogged (and even longer for me), you’d probably think we’re well along with the planning of our upcoming wedding. I mean, it’s just over six months away right? Well… probably not as much as you think.
We’re currently debating the type of proper wedding invitations to send out and are at somewhat of a standstill. Do we get some professionally done? Do we do them ourselves? Do we pay someone to create a template like the one in the image above and then print them out ourselves? It’s rather difficult to figure this all out when Marnie and I have different thoughts on the matter. And then we take into consideration the benefit of doing it all online… is just a mailed “Save The Date” sufficient (that might just be me thinking that one)? Any of you fabulous readers have an answer to all of the above?
And then from a planning perspective, what else should we have sorted out. Thankfully our wedding planner Lori has us moving along, but I have to admit I haven’t a foggiest of what my responsibilities as groom happen to be. I mean, I know I have to show up at the wedding on time. And I probably won’t be able to wear just the Speedo I keep telling Marnie I’m wearing, but what else is there? Like is there still a need for a rehearsal dinner? Do people do rehearsal dinners for destination weddings?
Rings. I guess we have to talk about rings, right? I’m sure Marnie has some idea of what she wants, and I guess I have some thought on what I want as well – found one on Etsy just last night – but what’s the protocol here?
It’s all quite the struggle. So being the social guy I am, I figured every one of you could help us along the way. Who’s got the experience? Who can provide us some pointers?
