thanks for reminding me! about my eco-friendly wedding...

someone *just* commented about this, and I've been meaning to blog it anyway, so here it goes...comment:

I'm gonna eco-nerd it out here...cuz I fly one of the biggest pollution creaters (especially at high altitude) in the world...

But wouldn't the most eco-friendly be the location where the least number of people need to fly to get there?

Good luck with all the planning. According to any movie I've seen that has a wedding in it...this is the hard part.

your point is very, very, VERY valid. like, extra extremely valid. we discussed it, even. y'see, North Carolina would require travelers to fly from Oklahoma and Colorado and Nova Scotia and Georgia and Florida and California and Texas and who knows where else, but overall, we would guess that the most people are HERE. In North Carolina. And certainly on the East Coast.

however.

A wedding here would mean that the two most important ladies in my life, my Mother and my Granny, would be unable to attend.

And that is simply unacceptable, don't you agree?

Sometimes emotions and practicality *should* win over eco-friendliness, you know? And yes, you can quote me on that. But only if you say "sometimes" and only if you know that really means "in rare circumstances."

So, Tulsa is it. April 17th in Tulsa. :) Once I hear back from my mom (and potentially call in a favor by Jackie or Jessica) we just might have a VENUE, too. A venue where the event fee all goes to charity, even. I'll keep you posted! Yay!!!

Add Louisiana to that list! We're coming and we're bringing all of our animals. It wouldn't be a happy happy happy wedding without them!

Congratulations on picking a date! I can't wait to read about the other choices you make as you pursue the eco-friendly wedding.

In light of that information...I hope it wasn't an agonizing decision at all! :)

Family first as much as possible. 'Cause you don't know what you got 'til it's gone.



Besides, Tulsa is, and always will be, home.

You really must have a turbanator in your wedding, so I am coming even if you do not send me an invitation. And maybe I'll drive to save on CO2 emissions. How about car pooling with other friends from Raleigh?
Actually, having it in Tulsa could also be more green, because we (young folks in Raleigh) can go by car but if the venue were Raleigh, your family might have to travel by air.

Tulsa? April 17th? Sounds Fantastic!!!! I'm sure that will be a great place to invite most of the KD's that you still talk to also! (BTW I'm not assuming I would be invited, I just know you have many that you are still close with).

I also love that you are going to only be engaged for 6 months. I did the same - it is wonderful to not drag it out (plus you would just end up spending more money) it stays so fresh and exciting when you have a short engagement!
