There is a reason Bahama Mama is the name of an alcoholic drink. As I’ve told several people over the last few days, I will never be able to speak of this wedding without drinking.
The wedding taught me several things: 1) there has to be a limit to the DIY-ing; if it isn’t done two weeks before the wedding, then just pay for it. 2) If you have a schedule, stick to it and don’t let people off the hook if they cause you to fall behind. 3) Always have a contingency plan. 4) When planning a large wedding, alcohol is required for every step of the way.
From this experience I’ve decided that if and when I get married it will likely be very casually formal. I’m thinking formal dress attire, potluck, party, ceremony in the middle of the party. Simple enough, right?
I have the next couple of days to rest up since there was no relaxing on this trip. I also get to work on homework since there was barely any working on homework on this trip as well.
Time to go to sleep. Good night.
