Oh noez, I'm getting married! (countdown thread)
T-10 and counting!

In 10 days (and 45 minutes...), I will be getting married! Woohoo! I'm more excited about the honeymoon, to be honest. The wedding will be great and fun and blah blah blah...but my fiancee and I can't wait to get away from work, school, and wedding planning. We haven't relaxed in a year and a half. :shock:

So I'm going to keep a running countdown here up until a week from today, when my fiancee and I travel down to the wedding location where I won't have access to a computer...and even if I did, I wouldn't be using one!

Feel free to talk about your wedding experience, advice, regrets, etc.

T-10 days, 44 minutes!

Congratulations, Matt!!! It's wonderful to hear a groom who is so enthusiastic about his upcoming wedding! Your bride must be a wonderful woman. I'd love to hear more details about the wedding plans and honeymoon destination!

Congrats!!! How exciting!!!

How awesome. I wish you many wonderful years together!

Thank you! The wedding is in Providence Forge, VA, inside of a small and beautiful church. The reception is about half a mile down the road at a beautiful manor house. The music at the ceremony will be provided by a string duet (cello and violin). The honeymoon will be at the all-inclusive Sandals Resort at Nassau, Bahamas. We'll be there from April 7-April 12. I will be doing a bunch of scuba diving (got certified in September), snorkeling, and we plan on bringing "lazy bum" to a whole new level.

There will be about 50 people at the wedding, we were expecting 75-80. We want a small wedding, so we're happy with 50. :)

I'll be taking a TON of pictures - we got 5 underwater cameras. ;)

Our experience was a bit different.

Due to school, work, and many commitments we had only one week to arrange our wedding that was to occur four months later, out of the the state we were living in at the time (back home).

The time limitation was the best thing that could have happened. We had no time to fret over details. We just made decisions. There were absolutely no arguments. Would rapidly discuss the options and came to a mutually acceptable decision.

Everything worked just fine.

After the wedding we left to relocate, spent two nights in a hotel, and then started getting ourselves settled with no cash in a place we had never been. Ergo, no honeymoon.

But it worked, at least it has for thirty years come May.

Mattmac have a great wedding, lovely honeymoon, and all best wishes.

Wow...I'm jealous, auntdot! Fretting over details is AWFUL!!! Congratulations of nearly 30 years! :D

Congrats Matt! Enjoy scuba diving! Haven't been in years. Make sure you pop some pics up into the gallery when you get back so we can all be jealous. :lol:
