*I won my one and only book award in Trig. Of course it was a class of only 5 people, but still.
While we are only a few months into it wedding planning has turned out to be almost as complicated as Calculus. While it would be an extreme exaggeration to say that the effort required in wedding planning is as equal to the effort required in Calculus, it still is a pretty labor intensive project. I can understand while others from my gender choose to step aside and let others plan their wedding. It has been my experience that women seem to care a lot more about specifics in regards to the wedding than men. For example I have never once noticed or cared about the following:
- Chair covers.
- Wedding dress. I might be able to remember if it had straps or not, but besides that they all look like white dresses to me. Seriously. Sorry Laurie, Nancy, Marie and all the other lovely brides I have seen over the past years. You looked great, but you all looked the same.
- Plates. I remember and loved the food provided at weddings. There was the elk at Nancy's wedding and I also remember the crab dip at my sister's wedding. What I can't seem to recall is what this wonderful food was served on. I am sure there were plates, but I just remember the incredible food.
- Silverware - same as above
What I do remember is:
- Music - The band or DJ sets the tone for the wedding.
- The people - The more people I know or the more people around my age the better the time.
- Food - See above under plates.
- The setting. I have been to receptions that took place at a country club, on a boat, at a vineyard and even in Austria. All of those are memorable.
- The groom's tux. (Just kidding)
M and I are trying our best to allocate the work somewhat equally, so that we have a great wedding. My main focus is on the music, guest list, food, setting, and drinks. Once I start making decisions on that I will feel a lot more satisfied with our wedding plan. Until then I am going to feel like I am back in Bachelor Hall in Calculus frantically taking notes and trying to figure out what the heck is going on.
