One Year To Go

12 Nov
Europe: The Final Countdown

It's as good a time as any for this...

Small milestone today: we’re officially one year out from the wedding.

We may not have any idea what the table settings will look like.  We still don’t have a firm idea on the sort of entertainment to provide bar what is sure to be a hilarious wedding dance to Dizzee Rascal’s ‘Bonkers’ (lucky for me my future bride doesn’t read this blog).   I don’t know what colour suit I’m supposed to wear, though a Flava Flav inspired costume is not out of the questions.  But the exciting news is WE STILL HAVE 12 MONTHS TO PLAN, STUFF UP AND PLAN AGAIN! MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

The good news is, like most things in life, weddings are an incredible LEARNING opportunity.  For example, I know now that:

  • Cakes are REALLY expensive, particularly given they don’t really matter (oooo controversial!)
  • A car is a car.  Dude, I’m proud for you that you have a pink stretch Hummer, but it’s not going to get me to Warragul any quicker than my Honda Accord, and I dare say my turning circle will be smaller too.
  • Picking a bridal dance song is a minefield.  Nine Inch Nails? Bad.  Anything from the Verve back catalogue?  You’re getting somewhere.

And now I find out that post-wedding it only gets more confusing.

Still! Onwards and upwards!

    Cake is important, as long as it is not fruit cake.
    Cars, anything that is an American Muscle Car or an Edsel.
    David… let this one go!

      No. No cars. That has been decided.
