Beer at a Wedding

I’m getting married next month, and I’m more excited than I am nervous. It seems like a huge commitment, but I’ve found the right person to be with. We’ve been together for four years, so it doesn’t feel like we’re rushing into things either. I’ve got a house that we’ve both lived in for the past two years, and I know that we can make this work.

I’m really looking forward to the reception after the ceremony! We’re having fondue, ribs, chicken cordon blue, all the sides, and an open bar that is serving some of my favorite craft beers. We also decided to provide wine for people who don’t like beer. I don’t know how that’s possible, but whatever. That’s more beer for me!

Of course, there will be dancing, and I’ve got the moves to steal the spotlight. The theme of the wedding is going to be Japanese inspired, with a strong emphasis on floral arrangements and origami. My favorite tree is the Cherry Blossom, and we will have live music for the event. I’m so excited!

We registered at a couple of different places, and we’ve listed items by category because most of the stuff is for our home. Out of everything on the registry, I really hope I get one of these. I love a good beer, and there is nothing better than a cold brew straight out of the tap. I’m also asking for a funny garden gnome, but I’m leaving that to be a surprise. As long as I don’t get stuck with any pets, I will be very excited to receive our gifts.

It’s been extremely stressful making sure all the events are properly planned. I’m going to sleep so well when this is all over! I have three meetings to go to this Saturday, and on Sunday we’re tasting cakes. Believe it or not, the beer and food selection is already locked in place. All we have left to do is, well, pretty much everything else. You would think people would be on top of the whole RSVP thing and let us know if they’re coming, but that does not seem to be the case. I’m trying not to let it get on my nerves, but I find it pretty annoying.

The honeymoon should be nothing short of amazing. We have a two-week getaway in Hawaii, and we’re going to do as many outdoor activities as we can. I love snorkeling, and I’ve heard there is a bunch of great wildlife to check out around Oahu, and I’m hoping we can take a sailboat out for a day. I like sea turtles.

I’ve heard that ziplining is a lot of fun, but I might rather go parasailing. I’m so ready to be high above the ocean, looking down at the waves crashing onto the beach, and I want to take lots of pictures. My snapchat story is going to be on national television, I swear.

Only a couple of weeks left until our big day, and I can’t wait!
