All right then. I know of one person who’s interested in hearing about this, at least.
Our wedding is going to be held on a Cruise Ship in Vancouver’s port. We will board the ship (with people also going on the cruise and with people who only want to attend the ceremony and leave the cruise afterwards – let us know if you want to do that, you locals and semi-locals) and have the ceremony, then leave port and go to Alaska. Yay Alaska!
Upon returning to shore, we will fly back to Ontario for our reception on Sept. 4th in Temagami, at the Lodge. If you were planning on coming to the wedding, please plan to still come to the reception – it’s all about the party anyway, right? We may do a dramatic (see also: silly) re-enactment of the wedding. That means I get to wear my dress twice!!!!
Now to deal with what plans we’ve already set into motion. I don’t know what to do about them yet.
We’re doing this so we don’t have to deal with nearly as many family politics, and so that our reception can be a fun semi-formal party for us and our friends instead of something that’s trying to make everyone happy. Also, this way any friends we may have made in Vancouver by that time (all three of them, so far) can attend, which is cool. Plus we get to go on a cruise.
