Australia or Bust

I visited our travel agent yesterday with our thoughts on the honeymoon Down Under. We have decided to put all of our eggs in that one basket. Originally, we were going to have Plans B and C (Ireland and Italy,) but we've decided that it's kangaroos and koalas or nothing at all. We gave her a long list of things we wnat to see. Sarah wants to see the Queensland Zoo, which is going to be a bittersweet event, I'm sure. I want to hike in the Outback and swim in the Great Barrier Reef. We are also planning to skip over to New Zealand for a quick tour of Middle Earth.

So We Think We Can Dance..Dance..Dance

Sarah and I have already picked out our song for our first dance as a married couple, and we have been toying around with the idea of having a professional choreographer prepare something for us. Sarah has some dance experience, but aside from a few swing classes a decade ago, I am completely inexperienced. I visited the website of a local ballroom academy today, thinking I would have to cajole someone into taking on a pair of novice dancers. To my surprise, there was a link in the center of the homepage entitled Your Wedding Dance. For $200, they will choreograph a routine to the song of your choice and give 5 hours of private instruction at your convenience. We couldn't have asked for a better deal.

Graphic Artistry

I downloaded a trial version of Adobe Pagemaker so I could do all the graphic design work for the wedding this weekend. I'm pretty happy with the results, but I don't want to ruin the surprise, so I'm not posting anything here. The Save the Date cards should be in the mail by the end of July.

Blessing In Disguise

I've just received word from the designer that we had selected for our invitations that she has been recently restricted from using any Justice League images. Although her legal department is working on it, she didn't want me to take a gamble on things working out. I certainly appreciated her honesty. Instead of looking for another designer, I think I'll probably just do them myself. I do have a degree in Architecture after all; I ought to be able to design a wedding invitation.
