"we've got to get her a man before she fills this house with crucifixes and pussycats"

if i don't choose a date for my wedding reception rebecca is going to reach through the computer and kill me.  the thing is, choosing a date is hard.  really hard.  i'm not sure how much i can commit to having my whole family around for my wedding.  I had assumed that matt's family would be the problem but now it seems that my anxiety about my own family is the problem and i guess that's why we're planning an elopement in the first place.

the latest idea is to video tape the actual wedding and show it as a movie at a very cool old movie theater.  it's not expensive, it's a super fun idea (i think) it would hold all of our guests and we might be able to have alcohol for those who want it.  the problem is that securing a date and inviting people makes me feel itchy.  even if we end up just having friends up and watching a movie of our choosing with popcorn, it wouldn't be a total waste of an experience.  gosh, i might need chocolate and valium to get through this planning.

Sounds like there will be ample material to keep your readers fascinated. So long as you survive the experience without doing time....

Oh I love that idea - the movie of the wedding. It's YOUR day. Do it with no regrets. Screw everyone else. :)
