Well, time to let the cat out of the bag.
Joey & I have decided to get married sooner rather than later, and will say our “I dos” on December, 9 — yes, 2011, as in 4 weeks from today! We’ll be married in a private ceremony followed by a small dinner reception, and then some late night party action with our friends. I mean, it’s a Friday night, so why not?!
While I could write a novel on the wedding thoughts I’ve wrangled with since becoming engaged, and maybe some day I’ll do a longer post on the issue, the only thing worth focusing on now is that we are really freakin’ happy with our decision.
I say my cup runneth over because this whole time I’ve been so worried about disappointing the people that we love, and worried that people would think a small wedding means we don’t value their friendships, but I could seriously cry (and really did tear up more than once) at the responses I’ve gotten from everyone. Some wise beyond wise, some ridiculously funny, all have found their way into my heart.
All that is important is the memory of Joey’s face when he says, “I do.” All that is necessary will be with you then.
How big your party is has no relation to how happy your marriage is, and the latter is infinitely more important.
I am thrilled for you Diana, and even more thrilled for Joey in that…he gets YOU!!! For his love, his bride, his partner and best friend…..what a lucky man he is 😉 Your inner voice will never lead you astray.
You and Joey are such an amazing, special couple and you’re going to freaking love being husband and wife 🙂
I should get you a Sari for your after party
Joey, I fully expect to be chugging Natty Lights with lime with you by the end of the night.
I think I might have to get the phrase “All that is necessary will be with you then” engraved onto a frame. Like I said, wise beyond wise. Thank you JB.
I leave you with our story.
