With a little more than two months, one way to tell that we have a lot left to do is to listen to the way L's now refers to the event happening on August 29th. It's no longer "the wedding" or "our wedding." It's "this wedding." As in, "We have a lot to do for this wedding" or, "This wedding is really stressing me out."
Isn't it romantic?

For the life of me I don't understand why people put themselves through such a production.
Heck, throw a pot luck and stand up in front of the people who care about you and swear to be good to each other. What more is there?
I reached this point twice today - first when my mother didn't approve (read: detested) of the font I picked for the invitations, and next when we (mom, dad and I) met with the caterer to finalize the menu...2 hours later we finally made it out of there and I came home and made myself a nice, big vodka/tonic!
At least she isn't saying anything like, "Now, for my NEXT wedding..."
This past weekend I picked out tuxes and invitations. By the end of the day on Saturday, the word wedding was only heard following a string of words that made my groom laugh and my mother blush.
