I do not like the term "B List." Unfortunately, we have a "B-List." It's just the way it is when you decide to have a small wedding, secure a location that only holds 50 people, and then realize your family is not as small as you thought. I hate to think of our friends getting an invite only a month before the wedding and them thinking we think they are "low budget" or would prefer for them to be "less publicized." And how do you pick who comes off the B-List first? Who we both know the most as a couple? At random from a hat? Who we have known the longest? Alphabetical? Send them all a "Test About Us" now and invite the highest scores?
For anyone planning a wedding I have only one piece of advice for you. Do not think that planning a 50 person wedding is ANY easier than planning one for 250 people. Do not think that planning ANY wedding is easier than ANYTHING IN LIFE.
How do you determine your married name? This has been stressing me out for my whole life. I like my last name. It is very... me. Although, it would be very fun and cute to be "Mrs. S." But then there is all that paper work that you have to do to change it all around. So maybe I'll legally just stay the same but recreationally answer to Julie S. If I become a successful writer soon, I'm going to have to make a choice. On that note, I googled myself. And something terrible happened. I was halfway through typing my name, and THIS is what popped up:
Are you kidding me? Who is Julie Moult? I don't want to be confused with her. People think she is an idiot! They do not like her. If I keep my current name, people might think I'm that idiot and just added a few more letters to my name. So, I might have to change it for that fact.
*Sidenote* I really am loving the wedding planning process... Sort of.
