Not only am I busy planning my own wedding, but we have other weddings (and showers) to attend this summer as well. The first one is tonight. The wedding of my co-worker, in the fire service, co-workers are more like family than any other job I've ever had. I am very excited for my friend and his bride! They are wonderful people.
Tomorrow, Ben and I will be heading down to Rhode Island to meet up with the minister who will be marrying us. He is the former minister from my home church and agreed to marry us, I couldn't be any happier, that man had a profound impact on my life. It turns out that he also lives about 15 minutes from the Best Man. So we anticipate on meeting up with the Best Man and his wife while we are down there as well.
I had an awkward wedding moment (I am sure more are coming) but a friend of mine asked me when the "Save the Dates" were going out. Mind you we are less than 3 months away from the wedding, and the STD's went out in December. I said, that they had gone out in December, he then proceeded to ask his wife if she lost the save the date, because he didn't recall it. My heart was in my throat, it was SO awkward. I then said that unfortunately they were not invited to the wedding. I said that we were at our max for the space and really it is already cramped, at that number. He quickly hurried off the phone with me. I felt so bad for the situation. I think they are excited and happy for me but I just can't invite everyone. I hope they understand.
Ugh, as a bride, has any of you been put in this position? I've always been under the assumption that you should NEVER assume you are invited to the wedding until you get an invitation (or Save the Date). You can talk about the wedding and details about it, but never assume such things! NOW I know why. And let's just say I won't be making that mistake for any of my friends who are future brides (or grooms).
