The Wedding is coming up.
My sister is getting married May 10 (coincidentally, the same day Jenna Bush is).
My sister and her fiance are both very low-key, down-to-earth people. This wedding is being held in a church 40 minutes away from my house, with a reception in the parish hall across the street. I am doing practically nothing for this wedding, though my mother is doing an incredible amount of work and my sister, obviously, is, too. I am the maid of honor, but have been relieved of some of the traditional obligations (my sister wants neither shower nor bachelorette party, for example).
I cannot quite figure out how it has managed to consume nearly every waking moment for me, but it has. I am, it should be said, very, very excited. But still.
I now think in terms of things that must happen Before The Wedding and things that will have to wait until After The Wedding. Most of these things are entirely unrelated to The Wedding, except to me.
