Wedding woes, change of plans…

It appears that throwing a huge, offensively expensive and outrageous party for our nuptials, and the novelty that it was, has worn off for lack of any real good reason to do it. I mean a party is certainly in order, but spending a small fortune to get 200+ guests nice and liquored up for a few hours and shove food down their throats seems a bit… hmmm… what’s the word… exorbitant, and almost wanton. I mean, we might as well be in Vegas for five hours and the same things could probably occur for a much less hefty price tag. Don’t get me wrong, i think that a party is definitely in order and i will be the first one to pop open a champagne bottle, i just think that we are loosing focus of what we really want to achieve here.We want to get married, not throw the best party Columbus has ever seen. If we could do both without loosing our minds along the way, that would be great. Seeing things as they are, we have chosen an alternate route to the alter – a much cheaper yet, in its own way, much more personal and perhaps beautiful arrangement for our big day. We were thinking of Marco Beach Ocean Resort for a beach side ceremony and reception following on the veranda. Simple, elegant, uncomplicated. We are by no means big planners. I can’t even organize my own sock drawer. I think an easy packaged ceremony bodes well for us, and the destination provides us with a trimmed down guest list. The C-bus wedding was getting really hard with all the vendors, appointments, meetings, and the like – this is just easier. We fly there, we get married. Simple. More info on our wedding website!

vegas, baby and some other stuff…

so we finally squared away our bachelor/bachelorette bash and it couldn’t get any better!! a big thank you to becca for dealing with all of the details, and to andy for offering support and insight. it’s going to be a rockin’ good time…we’re staying at mandalay bay, and i am probably too excited about the backstage shark reef tour.

so i feel really bad about not blogging for so long…a lot has been going on, and i want to ease back into the routine of using this venue to share what is going on in our lives – especially now with the wedding and everything. i want to continue our virtual life scrapbook, and i don’t want to leave out all of the good stuff going on now.

weddings are full time jobs – thank god for my mom. and for mr. park’s annoyingly neurotic, yet endearing knack/obsession with striking the perfect design. without him, we’d probably be eating off of paper plates, surrounded by a horrid mismatched color palette. i am gravely lacking in this department, and he frequently looks completely stunned by some of my original “ideas.” i like to think of them as unique little quirks…mr. parks thinks of them as terrible taste!!! 🙂

i have a hundred new observations on the world of over the top party planning, and i promise to start sharing on a regular basis. i fell asleep early tonight, then woke up to “driving rain” at about 2:00 and decided it was the prime time to roll out a little blog. i’m glad to be back – i miss this creative outlet that thrives on the silly nuances of life that we observe in our daily routines. thank god for all of the infinitely interesting twists that are out there, waiting to be discovered among everyday events that are camouflaged in a suit of the mundane.
