Planning the Wedding · Jul 2, 05:14 AM

Susan and I are slogging through the arrangements. The date is set: September 17th. That’s 44 days from today, according to my calculations. The venues for the ceremony and reception afterwards are set. I’m looking at arranging catering; Susan is looking at invitations.

So far I’ve contacted J and L Catering and Food for Thought. Still need to get in touch with Va Pensiero and the charmingly named Froggy’s Catering.

Surprise, surprise, it’s all looking expensive. It is easy to blow money on a wedding. We’re aiming to do something that is nice but not extravagant. There’s a budget that’s creeping upwards. Nevertheless I think the time pressure is harder than the money pressure.
