Re: Goodbye Garden

  Unfortunately we both have oodles of cousins...My dad is one of 11, mom is
one of 5, fiance's dad is 1 of 14, his mom one of 3..she's the only one with
a small side. One of the joys of being Irish...large large families!
We already cut the guest list by deciding not to invite any kids..that
lowered things by 35...LOL! The only kids there will be our flower girl and
ring bearer. Most of my family is in New England and Canada so I doubt they
will all come...so we are looking at a guest list of roughly 75-80-mostly
his side!
  I agree about those bridal mags. Apparently your marriage is doomed if you
don't have the $300 cake knife and $5000 wedding band! Crazy stuff!
