The rich couple spent $8 on each invitation. Something is seriously wrong with that picture.
Toto, maybe if we were in Kansas, weddings would be a heck of a lot cheaper.
In other news, our planning is progressing nicely. We've got a list of invitees, and we're close to securing a location and a date. Because we're taking financial ownership of the wedding, we have a lot more autonomy than we might otherwise have. For instance, we don't have to kowtow to familial pressure to invite long-lost cousins or golf buddies.
And we've started thinking about the talents and resources of our friends and family and how we can tap into them. My friend, Paul, was a photographer for our college newspaper. I know someone out there would get a kick out of being the bartender.
And, I think Colorado might just be the best state in which to get married. A marriage license is only $10. We can solemnize the wedding ourselves. No blood tests are required. And, to boot, if Matt were my cousin we could still march down that aisle together.
