I just wanted to tell you that I'm reading your thread and enjoying it very much. A little bit of a "late bloomer" to it since we sort of just green-lighted our own vow renewal. (Reading things like this makes me both apprehensive and excited). You've really been through it on some aspects!
I'm feeling the money crunch with our own and we're not even bringing any guests (it's sort of a correct-all from our first wedding while being VERY meaningful because of the timing, we made it through a really crappy year). The people who, I guess, thought they should be coming to a vow renewal are unhappy... no way to please everyone, or in our case, anyone, so we just left everyone out. (There are those who think a vow renewal is unwarranted and would be incensed at being invited... sprinkled among those are people who figured we'd invite them on an all-expense-paid vacay...
Your humor and analytical nature is very much appreciated by me (bachelor-in-sales-management-and-now-MBA-student here... I'm going about planning with a mix of MBA 'just get it done' and more than a twinge of emotion and stressing lol! I'm very good at being analytical with work, my personal life is a bit different) You reminded me I should make a spreadsheet now that we've decided a few things
You've been so good with pics to this point... I do hope that you'll continue even after you're married... let us know how it all went, etc. Just a small plea!
(Reading back through this I feel sort of like I went on a tangent like drunk Aunt Matilda when she gets up to do a toast). My bad... I turn the microphone back to you now lol.
