1. When it is humid, does your hair go flat or frizz up?

2. Coke or Pepsi?

3. What color shoes would you wear with a little black dress to a wedding? (I have an idea of what I am going to wear but looking for more suggestions)

I just posted that because I realize where you are on the drive.

I have that in my car....what station?

I told my husband this morning we were debating whether black was appropriate for a wedding guest, and he said, "Well, yeah, sure. I mean, if you're Morticia Addams."

Well, mine didn't take long to plan. A venue, a meal, transportation, something to wear, flowers, a preacher to get the thing done, the end. My goals with the wedding: Evwrybody that comes, ages 18 months to 85 years able to have a good time, and my husband and me married at the end of it. From everything I can tell, both requirements were satisfied.

Mine took a few phone calls, they have a planner who did all the details for us.  The party afterwards took a bit of planning, but not much as everyone helped.

It's 80 if your radio is Sirius.  If it's XM, look it up on the XM Schedule at siriusxm.com

That's about all we took when planning my second wedding.

 

And really? The first didn't take much more planning, and it was a traditional one, small, but traditional.

Seems to me that taking just a week to plan a wedding would really dial down all the unnecessary stress and drama that seems to accompany the more traditional route.  God knows, if I ever get stupid enough to marry (stupid part being a factor in my stage in life, not that marriage is generally stupid), it will be a courthouse affair with a nice dinner "reception" afterwards for the dozen or so people I would expect to attend. :)

More than a dozen and I'll go wild and spring for cake, punch, coffee and cookies at the church's Fellowship Hall.  After the courthouse wedding.

Not everyone wants a big traditional wedding.
