Matt tries blogging

So, this is our blog, huh? Fancy that. I've heard a lot about it--seems like a happening place. Since I haven't contributed anything to this page yet, or really to any of the wedding planning, I thought I would say hello. Hello.

During the past few weeks I've been a participant in some strange conversations. I'm still not exactly clear on the concept of centerpieces, but, despite this, I am expected to have opinions about such things. It doesn't help matters that I'm often not totally paying attention during these discussions (I claim ADD).

Apparently weddings are a lot of work. I assumed the planning would equate to the effort of throwing a college party--get a keg and some cheap booze and *poof* our friends would show up. I have since learned that this is not the case.

I have also noted some other differences in the way Briana and I are approaching the whole wedding thing. Here are some of my observations:
  • She downloaded an application for her iPhone that tells how long it will be until our wedding (down to the second).
  • I downloaded a game for my iPhone called “Space Monkey.”
  • She spends time deciding on the palette of the wedding.
  • I have no idea what this means.
  • She regularly updates the wedding blog.
  • I browse the classified section of a triathlon website looking for sweet deals on bike parts.
  • She knows the name of the designer who will make the bridesmaids’ dresses.
  • I wonder if I can get away with having the groomsmen wear board shorts.
  • She creates blog posts about wedding dresses.
  • I knows she’ll choose a great dress and will look beautiful in it. I also hope we can sell it on eBay after the wedding. Or Craigslist. I'm not picky.
