We have had a long day packing for our trip back East, as well as packing our things for the Apartment managers to paint & shampoo our carpets next week. Needless-to-say, we are exhausted. Right now, not able to think clearly & write cohearently. Yet, we do want to provide you content of our plans before we depart Phoenix This coming Wednesday May 31st.
For the most part, everything is done. We will still have some last minute things to do. WE still need to decide on the menu choices for the 4 course Dinner on Odyssey. Following our 20 minute Ceremony, we will have a 4 hour reception. There will be lots of good food and dancing going on. BTW, The Captain of the Ship will Marry us & the Jp will legalized. We still need to get our Marriage Lisence. Will do that Thursday, June 1 st.
I have my Gown. Actually, I already picked it out &, it is at my Folks in New Hampshire along with our Unity Sand. The Gown is beautiful. Satin material, floor length, simple but elegant. Darrell will also send a link to the Pics of me modeling the Gown as well as pics taken of us in our backyard, by the pool of our Apartment
Complex. Our Friend Darcy, was the one whom took the digital shots. Thanks Darcy.
Darrell has ordered his Tux. He went to Men’s Wearhouse, took his measurements & forward the size & so forth to a Men’s wearhouse in Boston, where we will pick it up on Friday, the day before the big day.
Since we will be having our Ceremony on the ship, actually,on the upper Deck, we will not use the traditional Unity Candle. Instead , we will use the Unity Sand to symbolize our Union. We will have a total of 3 vases. I will have one empty one, Darrell another & the third we will blend both his Sand & mine. We chose a light blue & a pink for me. Not too many colors to select from & also, we wanted a dark & a light color, so, when, the two were blended, it will not look like dirt.
AS we said, the Wedding is in 5 days. We will be departing Phoenix Wednesday Morning. We have a flight at 9a.m On America West & will arrive in Boston at 5. My Sister Tara & Brother-in-law Bob will meetus & we will stay with them Wednesday & Thursday night. Many of our Family & friends will be coming down either Friday nightor Saturday morning. Those of us whom will be in town Friday, June 2, will be going out to Dinner to a French Restaurant. Only 30 to 40 people will be attending the Wedding & most, are my Family & close friends of ours. Some, I have not seenin years & it will be nice to see everyone,after all this time.
