One week down

Well I don't have much to report this week. I am glad to say that my first week of marriage has gone well. The ceremony went off as planned for the most part and the reception went well also. There were a few issues but nothing major. I know that we forgot to bow at the alter when we came in. Also, because the priest who presided over our ceremony had a fairly thick accent I couldn't understand everything he said. As such during our vows I actually said "only you" instead of "honor you". But I don't think it is that big a deal.

After the ceremony we took pictures in a park not too far from the church. At the reception pretty much everything went as planned. to everyone who attended thank you very much for being there and for your generous gifts. We won't be able to send out the actual thank you cards for a few weeks because we first have to get the pictures from our photographer. The thank you cars were part of the package we ordered.

We are off to Hawaii for our Honeymoon on Monday so I will have no post up next week.

End of the Line

Well this is it. This is my last post as a single man. By this time next week I will be married. I have been pretty busy this last few weeks which is why i missed last weeks post. My new in-laws came into town last week and came over to my house to meet my parents. I think everyone got along well so that's good.

Everyone keeps asking me if I am nervous. I am not. Maybe I should be but I really don't feel any great swell of nervousness. I see the wedding and the marriage as two different and separate things. If the wedding goes well then that's great but if it doesn't I don't really think it should have any effect on my marriage.

The only thing I am somewhat nervous about is the weather. This has been one of the most rainy summers on record. I would really like it if it is not pouring rain during my wedding. It probably wouldn't effect me too much but my bride would have a difficult time walking in her dress in the rain. It just wouldn't be very pleasant I don't think.

Other than that I am doing OK. I think just about all of the people who read this blog are coming to my wedding. So wish me luck and I will see you all next week.
