something for everyone

*Warning: I am about to discuss wedding plans because some of you have expressed an interest. For those of you who are not interested (i.e. male), here are some pictures for you to enjoy: a photo of Carrie Anne Moss in patten leather, a pint of Guinness, and a random result from yesterday's footie matches. Do not read any further if you do not want to be bored/nauseated/offended by talk about weddings. Thank you.

Just another word of thanks to all of you who've left congratulatory comments and sent messages to us. Makes me all weepy, it does. :)

We are meeting the wedding lady on Wednesday to have a look around the venue and discuss the sort of weddingy things one discusses with wedding ladies. The tentative plan is to marry on Sept. 25, 2004 in England. That's right, this year. I ain't getting any younger you know. The theme is small and simple (a bit like me, really): immediate family and close friends, ceremony and reception at the same place, lots of food/drink/laughs, and a wedding dress that doesn't make me look like a doughboy that has spent 15 minutes in the microwave. I don't think I'll have bridesmaids, but I will have flower girls (we've got two already eagerly awaiting) and Paul will have a best man. As feminist as I like to think I am, I do want my Dad to give me away or lead me down the aisle or pawn me off on the poor unsuspecting Englishman, or whatever you want to call it. We're thinking of going to Napa/Sonoma for our honeymoon following the wedding, and then we can also see Paul's grandma.

What's really important to us is keeping this as stress-free as possible and not doing something just to please others. And finding a way to smuggle Jasper into the ceremony and reception.
