Wednesday the future Mrs Grrouch and I will be going over the invitation and finalizing the wording and getting them ordered, hopefully. I'm not an expert on these types of things but I'm pretty sure that we should probably be getting the invitations in the mail at this point instead of just getting them ordered, but it didn't work out that way.
The good news is that our wedding is made up of people we can pretty much guarantee are coming to it. Mostly family with a few friends mixed in. I only had one person on my list that I was not sure of if they could make it or not and the other day I got the rejection notice (but not because I'm not awesome and because they don't love me but because of family illness reasons)
Speaking of which, I kind of expected to receive the info that he was not going to be able to make it but even with the expectation it didn't help to cushion the blow when I actually read it.
I've kept very few friends over the course of my life and it depresses me a bit to know that one of them is not going to be able to make it. I'm sure I'll live and get over it and I'll make sure to send him and his wife a nice care package even though they can't be there - but it's still kinda a drag.
So in one oh nine days I'll be getting ready for the biggest event of my life and it's pretty exciting. The whole family thing really has me happy and looking forward to living another 40 or so years.
