Good Thoughts

  • Did I mention this yet? I asked my rabbi from when I was in religious school and such if she would do our wedding even though it wasn’t religious. Unfortunately she wouldn’t, now I guess we have to look into some person to do the ceremony…not sure how you go about that. We don’t want anything religious at all in it though.
  • We are going to a reception site on Saturday and Sunday we are seeing the place in Maine. I’m starting to think I should have just cancelled plans we had this last weekend and gone to a venue but we’ll work something out one way or another.
  • With some researching in Maine I saw they have catering of Lobster Bakes, while I’m sure that is expensive it sounds heavenly.
  • Things are coming together as far as people putting aside their issues when it comes to everyone that is involved. It seems my friend KG is being very mature about her problems with KK (a BM) and that is a huge relief. I now need to get all my BMs together and get everyone to like each other enough to have fun with this. Not everyone is quite buddy buddy yet :dunno:
  • I have though reminded myself that this is our day and no matter where it is or what happens it will be wonderful. If it rains then we’ll dance around in the rain and just have fun. If we can’t get the place we want we’ll just pick some place and make it beautiful. It will be great.

    Like you, we didn’t want something religious (especially seeing as though our Pagan-ness would have freaked out his grandparents) so Eddie and I made up our own vows by combining about 3 different wedding/handfasting ceremonies. We had it performed by a local woman we knew from a pagan mailing list who was ordained w/ the Universal Life church, and no one was the wiser. I’ve known of people who have just gone and gotten ordained through them and performed ceremonies for friends. Just something to think about 🙂

    You might want to check with a minister from your local Unitarian Universalist church/association. They’ve got a ‘find a local church’ link somewhere on UU ministers pretty much let you do things your own way, including as much or as little religion as you want 😀
