So, I'm getting married...

In 10 days time...

Needless to say, I'm freaking out.....aaaaaarrrrrggghhh! But I'm also thrilled about the whole thing and shivery and excited and enjoying every scrap of attention coming my way! :)

Of course, things aren't going smoothly - homecoming jacket sewn the wrong way, flower girl's dress adorned with hideous silver and gold roses, pastry chefs in Colombo saying chocolate gateau for a wedding cake just not practical, grooms tie made of purple silk that looks positively gangrenous... ad infinitum. But as Darling points out, things rarely go smoothly, so the best thing to do is hang on tight and enjoy the ride...

This weekend is going to be hectic as that is when everything will actually have to be paid for... I won't deny that it'll be heart wrenching to fork out literally hundreds of thousands of rupees for a single 4 hour event. However, I will heave a sigh of relief because making the payment = final confirmation = things will get done... I hope!

So, Angel will be quieter than usual for a good three weeks. Bear with me gentle readers... I will be back soon with more stories for your reading pleasure!

Congrats.. to the both of you! Don't worry everything will work out just fine!

Kinda know what your going through.. although I'm at the early stages of confirming and paying the initial deposits for ppl.

Darwin said...

I'd totally elope too, or have a simple ceremony abroad where I don't have to invite too many people I don't like. Goodluck with the wedding!

Angel said...

Mia : thanks... glory box (or rather, glory drawer looks slightly healthier now

Azrael : elopement has crossed my mind more than once, but idea firmly squashed by girlish desire to wear uncomfortable white garments and be the centre of attention. thanks for the wishes!

Sam : yup, poruwa, ashtaka, jayamangala gatha... the works!

Sittingnut, Buddhika, Chaar -max : thanks! Chaar... hope the planning goes well... let me know if you need any help...

Darwin : Thanks! totally agree with you on lack of need to invite people thoroughly disliked by self but connected to family in some obscure way. Ah well.. we'll see how it goes...

Angel said...

PP : thanks. The chocolate gateau thing just didn't work out, but I'm having 15lbs of decorated ribbon cake instead. Glad someone else sees the pointlessness of cutting a fake cake. Slightly unsure as to what to do with the cake afterwards as is too small to serve all guests and too big to fit onto dessert table... will lt you know.

LD : thanks for the good wishes... definietely planning on having fun! :)

Bea said...

hope you have a great time, good luck

Daham said...

Congratulations.

Now might be a good time to drop that pitchfork, don't you think?

Half Doctor said...

I have that irresistible urge to say "I told you so...!"
But....
Let me wish,
A wish for tomorrow,
That happiness and joy,
May fill your lives in every way,
As you join as Man And Angel,
On your most special Wedding Day

Indunil said...

Well, it's nine days later and the angel and her pitchfork are probably getting ready for the rites early tomorrow morn.

Don't stress, dear - these things have a habit of working out in the end. Remember, the whole point of the four hours is not the four hours itself - it's the part that comes afterwards! :-)

Sooooo... congrats to you both! May you have a lifetime of memories together. :-)

L said...

Wish you a future of happiness and contentment (plus or minus the cake!)

Half Doctor said...

It's not fair at all...
I made a poem specially for you to congrat you on your hitch and when I visit today, it has not been posted due to some technical hitch!
Anyway let me give you a belated Congratulations at least! and may you have the utmost happiness through your marraige!
Anyway thanx, it was nice!!!

Angel said...

Bea, daham, indunil, l : thanks and yes I did have a good time :)

Half doc : sorry for the late aproval of the comments... totally appreciated the poem. No, of course that's not me... what ever gave you that idea?

Stay tuned people, loads of details as soon as i can type them into some semblance of sanity!
