What to do??

Last night I had big plans of holeing myself in the sewing studio and practicing my free-motion quilting. Just before I got off work the priest who is marrying us called to see if we could sign some paperwork since he was in town. We met up with him at Borders, filled out the paperwork and talked about the wedding. He has a wedding the night before, so can't do the rehearsal then, so we talked about having it the morning of the wedding. Since we have people coming from a distance this might actually work out better since they wouldn't have to come down and spend the night. Paul and I talked about not having the formal rehearsal dinner and instead having a BBQ for our wedding party at the river where we are planning to go fishing the night before anyway. Then we could have a rehearsal lunch, so everyone has somewhere to eat before the wedding. Did I mention the wedding is out in the middle of nowhere? It would probably be better to have a planned lunch for our wedding party, so they don't get drunk so fast.
We also talked about the time of the wedding and whether or not to have mass or not. It's something we'll be thinking about and need to decide before May. We could have a 2:34pm wedding with a reception at 5 on 6-7-8 or we could have a mass at 3:45pm and it would be the church's mass for the weekend and it would be a 3:45 wedding on 6-7-8 with a dance at 9. I guess we'll keep talking about it. We both talked to our moms and discussed options, but we really haven't figured out a plan for sure. I guess we'll just have to keep talking and planning, but it helps to know our options.
I came home and pressed all the fabrics I bought yesterday. Since they are QS quality and not going in a quilt, I think I'll just do my FMQ on them and call it good, but I was too tired last night, so decided to wait until tonight to give it a try. I'm still patiently waiting for my PJ Quilter DVD. With any luck it could be in the mail today. Keep your fingers crossed.

The numbers make my head want to explode! It'll all come together in the long run. So much work though! Yesterday was our's all worth it in my opinion....

Sounds like a fabulous plan - if it makes things easier on your guests and you're happy with it, go for it! My only question for you: is this too much for one day? Can the two of you hold up? As Regina noted, it'll all work out in the end.
