Wedding Angst

Hey Bowen,

I kinda needed to offload for a sec. ={

Our videographer told us about hiring professional MCs, which I think is a good idea. Will's asked one of their family's friend's daughters, Teresa, who (I think) has done MC'ing before. But, I want to see who our videographer can find to do it. So that part should be taken care of okay.

But I'm worried about how the banquet's going to go.

I don't want to play those cheap games, like dangling a piece of meat on a string for us to bite, trading shoes and walking around, blind-folding Will and having him take clothes-pins off me with his teeth and stuff like that. When you told me about Cuong's(?) wedding last year and his wife not playing along, I totally understood her point of view. And if something is pulled on me that I don't want to do, I'd probably react the same way. I'd probably just freeze as well.

Both our families have esteemed guests and I don't want raunchy or cheap humour. One or two games like that might be okay, but I want my wedding to have a little class.

And then there's the stupid kissing games, all throughout the evening. You can't stop people from hitting the glass and tableware, but in all the weddings I go to, that's probably the part I hate the most. It's not that I don't like kissing Will, it's that I don't like the idea of everyone else telling us when to kiss and watching us.

But if we don't play games, what the hell is there to do? I'm okay at putting an event together logistically, but I suck at coming up with content and time-filler.

I'm already depressed enough that this fucking wedding is not for Will and me. It's for the family. Will and I are not the loud, merry-making types. But he's the oldest Grandson and I'm the oldest child in my family, so we can't just sign the damned papers and be done with it.

Oh, and did I tell you that I don't want a Bridal Shower, Stagette, Bachelorette party or whatever that's called? I'd be more than happy to go to lunch or dinner somewhere with you, Mabel and a few others but I don't want the official BS.

Actually, one of the first things to do when you get into town is that my parents want to take you out to dinner =) =) =)

Anyway, I just needed to tell someone before I started crying at work... =P
